“Long Beach is a city defined by its neighborhoods, and one of them is the area around Fourth Street and Cherry Avenue dubbed Retro Row. Anchored by the gloriously redone Art Theater, you’ll find everything from junk stores to places selling $8,000 Hans Wegner Chairs.” -Los Angeles Times

 

Fourth Street is described as a community that brings business, residents, and visitors together in a celebration of independence and diversity. Thrillist names Long Beach as one of the most diverse cities in the United States and Retro Row follows that trend.    

 

This prime stretch of Long Beach real estate boasts a long list of dining, thrifting, shopping, drinking, and cafes. With a little something for everyone, Fourth Street is the perfect destination for a date night, a long night out, or a day with the kids.
