Long Beach Walk Friendly Community
Southern California is synonymous with traffic, freeways, and is often seen as the epitome of car-oriented culture. Long Beach, however, is making strategic investments and launching a tangible cultural revolution that promotes walking.
The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center has designated Long Beach a Silver-Level Walk Friendly Community for its walkability initiatives and programs. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration and FedEx, Walk Friendly Communities is a national recognition program aimed at recognizing communities for their commitment to pedestrian safety.
