top 10 places to live if you are under 35The online publication “Vocativ,” which bills itself as “coupling the power of cutting-edge technology with a take-no-prisoners attitude toward news gathering and story telling…to engage with the digital generation” has just published their list of top 50 places for people under 35 to live. 


And Long Beach breaks into the top 10 at number 8.  It is the only Southern Calif City to be in the top 10 and joins the ranks of Portland, Austin, San Francisco and Seattle. 


And of course…one of the big differentiators is our bike friendly culture.  We are rated #3 from a bike perspective.


So when you are asked…why is being bike friendly important??? It’s not just about the bike…it’s about making Long Beach one of the top places in the country to live. And bicycling is a big part of that draw.


Read more on the Long Beach Post about why Long Beach is great for those under 35…as well as for those of us who may be a year or two (well maybe more) out of that age range.
