Long Beach is located in Southern California, USA, on the Pacific coast, just 20 miles (35 km) south of Los Angeles. Long Beach brings both the "big city" downtown feel with the charm of a seaside community. It benefits from the sunny forecasts and warm temperatures around the year that Southern California is known for: a great escapade from cold November climate in many parts around the world.
Local area attractions (Pacific Aquarium, Queen Mary) and short day trips can make this conference the opportunity of a mini vacation for families. On the other hand, the greater Los Angeles area houses many museums, world-class shopping, delicious dining, various cultural offers including the Pacific Symphony, the Honda Center, the Gettys Museum, and much more. The surrounding area is also the home to several theme parks (Disneyland, Universal Studios, Knotts Berry farm), wild life sanctuaries and zoos (San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park, Sea World).
