With summer in full swing, it's time to hit the beach — for sunning, yes, but also for shopping. There's a new level of sophistication in shopping along the coast. Locally owned boutiques with a curated point of view are changing the flavor of beach towns from beer-soaked spring break haunts to chic retail and dining destinations. The style renaissance is fueled in part by the success of Venice's Abbot Kinney Boulevard, which this spring was dubbed by GQ magazine the chic-est street in America.

A street in Long Beach was reopened Monday after an ammonia leak at a storage center near the 710 Freeway shut down the neighborhood for several hours. Firefighters received an alarm from the building in the 600 block of Anaheim Street about 3 a.m., officials said. At the scene, the first responders could smell the ammonia even before they got inside the building, said Long Beach Fire Department spokesman Matt Dobberpuhl. Several small leaks were found, and authorities shut down Anaheim Street for blocks in both directions, officials said.
