While some might joke that California, is in a world of its own, it’s actually part of the U.S. Pacific Standard Time Zone (PST). If you live on the east coast and are part of the Eastern Standard Time Zone (EST), like New York, someplace like Long Beach will be three hours behind you. In other words, if it’s noon in New York, it’s 9:00 in the morning in Long Beach. If you live in the Central Standard Time Zone (CST), like Kansas City, Long Beach will be two hours behind. And finally for those in Mountain Standard Time (MST) like Colorado, Long Beach will be one hour behind.
