The Circle Area of Long Beach gets its name for the traffic roundabout at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway, Lakewood Blvd, and Los Coyotes Diagonal. The outer boarders of this neighborhood are made up of Stearns St. to the north, Clark Ave. to the east, Anaheim St. to the south, and Loma Ave. to the west. It is next to the neighborhoods of Artcraft Manor and Park Estates.
There is a very wide range of home sizes and styles in this area, more-so than in many other Long Beach neighborhoods. The most popular homes are the Spanish and Bungalow styles, though there is a mix of everything. Many of the single family homes were built between 1920 and 1950, but there are also multi-family residences and condos that provide convenient housing for nearby California State University Long Beach.
There are numerous shops and restaurants in and around this area, and it is conveniently located near the Recreation Park Golf Course, Woodrow Wilson High School, and the 405 freeway.
