We will be in the LA area 12/29/2018-1/3/2019 and we are scheduled to land at and depart from the LGB airport. We will be renting a car. Is Long Beach a safe area to stay in? We are thinking about the Hilton Long Beach or an Air B&B or other rental in the Long Beach area. Is it a good place or should we make reservations somewhere else? I did a Google search but everything I read was a couple years old.
