Long Beach is a Southern California city located on the coast of Los Angeles County. It’s a unique and diverse beach town boasting an urban-feel paired with a vibrant arts and music scene and strong community-based initiatives. At BaM Body and Mind Dispensary, we’re excited to be a part of the Long Beach cannabis community, serving high-quality, legal cannabis products to both locals and visitors. There are tons of reasons why BaM loves Long Beach, but here are the top 5 reasons that Long Beach holds a special place in our hearts.

A Variety of Cool Attractions

Long Beach’s waterfront is home to the largest aquarium in California, the Aquarium of the Pacific, in addition to the RMS Queen Mary, a retired British ocean liner that once provided transatlantic voyages, The Museum of Latin American Art, the Long Beach Museum of Art, Rainbow Bridge Park, and more. In fact, there are so many fun things to do on the waterfront, going to the beach barely makes the list! But if you are looking for a place to soak up the sun, try Junipero Beach or Long Beach City Beach.

Small-Town Feel

Despite Long Beach’s designation as the sixth largest city in California with roughly 500,000 residents,  it possesses a small-town vibe. It’s common in Long Beach to see “community libraries” outside of people’s homes, or baskets of citrus fruit available free for neighbors to share with one another. In addition to its community-focused nature, Long Beach is known for its affordability in comparison to other Los Angeles coastal communities that comprise exclusive neighborhoods with high price tags. Long Beach is down to earth, and that translates to more accessibility overall for its residents.

Diverse Cultural Makeup

Locals agree that the Long Beach community is a friendly and welcoming place, with a diverse demographic. According to City Journal, approximately 1 in 4 Long Beach residents are foreign-born.This diverse cultural makeup contributes to Long Beach’s allure as a hub for multicultural events and eateries. In 2020, the Long Beach Post wrote that the city was named the country’s 25th most ethnically diverse city and the ninth most ethnically diverse “large city” with a population over 250,000.

Community Events 

There are numerous annual events organized and overseen by the City of Long Beach including the Fall Festival, Arts & Crafts Festival. concerts, parades, the Fireworks Extravaganza, the Farmers Market, Arts in the Plaza, holiday events, races, and so on. In addition to events organized by the city itself, there are a variety of privately held concerts and festivals like Cali Vibes, a cannabis-friendly, reggae music festival.

Proximity to DTLA and Iconic Beach Towns 

Long Beach is conveniently located about 25 miles away from Downtown Los Angeles, 

making it easily commutable for those working or visiting Los Angeles. Long Beach is also located between some of California’s most iconic beach towns including Huntington Beach and Newport Beach to the south and Manhattan Beach, Marina Del Rey and Santa Monica to the north. This central location is perfect for anyone trying to explore the coasts of Los Angeles or Orange County, or get a feel for the true California surf culture that’s so evident along the coast.

At BaM Body and Mind Dispensary in Long Beach, we believe that our Long Beach community deserves the best cannabis out there (and at the lowest price), which is why we’ve made it a point to carry top quality cannabis products including flower, vapes, concentrates, edibles, topicals, tinctures, and more.
