Some wonders of Long Beach: The Joe Jost’s pickled egg, the Walter Pyramid, the 3.1-mile Shoreline Pedestrian Bike Path, the roller-coaster ride on Loynes Drive, the sixth hole at Virginia Country Club, the Moreton Bay fig trees at the ranchos Los Cerritos and Los Alamitos, the koi pond at the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden, Long Beach Airport, the Aquarium of the Pacific, the Villa Riviera, the Ocean Center Building, the Pacific Room in the Long Beach Arena, the Long Beach Casting Club clubhouse in Rec Park, the Portuguese Bend Distillery, the Nature Center at El Dorado Park, the Traffic Circle. Oh yeah, and the Queen Mary.

Long Beach is full of wonders, and asking you to pick the top seven might seem daunting, especially when you consider the contenders can be anything from an egg to an airport.

Still, that’s what we’re seeking here: The Seven Wonders of Long Beach. Just be happy we’re limiting it to Long Beach, and things and places that currently exist here, saving you the heartache of having to decide between the Colossus of Rhodes and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.

You’re not, however, limited to those things we mentioned in that top paragraph. Those are just wonders we came up with by looking out our office window (yeah, it’s a lovely view). Maybe you’d prefer the canals of Naples, the Los Cerritos Wetlands, the Lone Sailor Memorial or the Belmont Pier; we’re not trying to put thoughts into your head or do some sort of Russian shenanigans to influence voting, we’re just amazed at the scope of our city’s wonders.

So, ignoring everything you’ve read, we’re asking you to send us your own list of the Seven Wonders of Long Beach. You can do that by sending your list to us at [email protected], or by responding to our post on Facebook.
