Just two miles north of Long Beach Airport, Lakewood Mall's 250 shops and restaurants make it a good place for either last minute or any minute entertainment. From Macy's to Target, Elephant Bar to Chipotle, a carousel to a 16-screen theater, there is something for everyone and every budget. Actually, this area where Long Beach City borders Lakewood is quite a melting pot. The mall is surrounded by some of Long Beach's wealthiest businesses and peculiar neighborhoods, as well as Lakewood's glamorless reality. Although this is not a typical tourist's area, a cruise in or around the mall sure feeds the curiosity of those who want to see beyond the surface.
It is hard to find a good Italian market outside of Italy or New York but Claro's is a gem. They sell everything Italian, from sausage and meats to all the cheeses (buffalo mozzarrella, provolone, ricotta, mascarpone). They sell some great dried pastas in unusual shapes and canned sauces. For those who make their own sauce, they sell all the necessary ingredients, from canned tomatoes to olive oil and herbs. Grab some sweets too, like a bag of authentic biscotti or freshly made cannoli. There are several other locations, including West Covina, San Gabriel, and Arcadia.
