A few miles north of downtown, the Bixby Knolls neighborhood beckons.
Along Atlantic Avenue and the surrounding area, there are numerous restaurants serving a variety of cuisines, plus a large selection of retail shops. Area attractions include Rancho Los Cerritos, the Richard Goad Theater, and the Long Beach Historical Society Museum.
Known to be an exceptionally family-friendly neighborhood, Bixby Knolls has embraced neighborhood events from “First Fridays” to Kidical Mass bike rides & stroller groups. Arguably their most well-known event is “First Fridays,” is a monthly special event along Atlantic Avenue.
Businesses stay open late as thousands of folks stroll between restaurants, shops, and street-side booths while being entertained by live bands and entertainers. Neighborhood pride is strong with this community and the area has been undergoing a true “renaissance” with many great partnerships with the City of Long Beach, city council offices, homeowner and neighborhood associations, and other community groups.
