Nice to hear from you.
The area in and around downtown Long Beach has just exploded the past decade. They have worked hard to make it the 'go-to' place. The domed terminal used to be home to the Spruce Goose, which is now housed in a wonderful museum in McMinville, OR. The Queen Mary, well, that thing should have been sunk years ago, inho.
Many years ago Disney wanted to take over this waterfront of Long Beach and turn it into Disney Sea, but the city voted it down. Would have been interesting to see what would have become of LB if that would have happened.
I've been itching to get to SG, hopefully you'll have a few hours to show me some new real estate!
Thanks for weighing in.
