Hello Hipower187

El Dorado is one of the nicest areas in Long Beach.

The homes are generally well maintained, and the schools are great . El Dorado park has a nature center and nature trail for nice little hikes.

If you have small children El Dorado Park is great inexpensive place for a play date.

I believe you will be very happy living in El Dorado!!!

If you need buyer representation or just want more information emailed to you, please contact me. I would be hapy to assist you.

Best of luck to you!!!

Kawain Payne, Realtor

North of Willow is great. I would avoid the southern part - closer to PCH. The areas between Willow and Wardlow are pretty nice & there are some very beautiful homes there.

Good Luck,

I'm not sure what the affordability is like these days (we sold our place in Long Beach almost a year ago), but you might want to try Belmont Heights and the East Side (not sure where the boundaries are). Most places south of 7th street, north of 2nd street, east of Walnut, and west of, say, Ximeno, are generally nice, well maintained, and (in my experience) safer than a lot of places in Long Beach. ... more

A whole house fan installed in your attic is the way to go in your Long Beach home. Open some windows, turn on the whole house fan. It pulls the cool air in from outside pushing the existing air in the home up into the attic which pushes the molten attic air out of the home. Let the fan run for about 10 minutes and all of the air in both your home and attic is refreshed and as cool as the outdoors. See link below for further information: ... more

The Naples Boat Parade is held the second Saturday of each December. You'll see gaily decorated sailboats, yachts and gondolas as they glide through the canals. Do you own a seaworthy vessel?

Students living on their own and in frat houses are scattered throughout Long Beach. Long Beach welcomes the university and it's lovely campus.
