I’m originally from El Paso, Texas, and I’ve lived in Long Beach for four years. The only things I miss about Texas are weather and good barbecue. I love Long Beach, especially downtown—there’s so much to do, and I walk everywhere.
All kinds of different people ride the train. It’s pretty calming to watch the city go by and see places you’ve never been. You think, “Oh, we can come back and visit that area.” Whenever we have friends come to visit, we take the train to show them L.A. We can see a lot more of it this way.
