Quick take: Downtown Long Beach

An occasional quick exploration of cities we visit 

I recently had the chance to walk around downtown Long Beach, Calif., between a couple of meetings recently and discovered real gems. Without knowing the background of the history, the architecture, or planning I stumbled upon a lot of mid-century architecture still intact, light rail, small-scale buildings with mix of businesses, and walkable streets. ⁣(Dropping in to Beachwood for a beer and BBQ kept me fueled.)
