Beautiful Redondo Beach is one of three Beach Cities in Los Angeles along with Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach. With easy accessibility, a rustic pier, waterfront activities, shopping and dining, there are so many reasons why Redondo Beach is the epitome of Southern California's Endless Summer. After all, the shores of Redondo are the original home of surfing in the contiguous United States. Even if you've never been to Redondo Beach, it might look familiar since it's been used as the backdrop for countless television shows and movies including "Pirates of the Caribbean" and the original "Point Break." Just because you're out of Los Angeles doesn't mean you won't see some stars!
Originally built in 1889, the Redondo Beach pier, better known as Horseshoe Pier, was rebuilt in 1995 into its signature horseshoe shape. The pier features dozens of souvenir shops and eateries with classic "Coney Island" foods like funnel cake, popcorn and of course, some of the freshest seafood in town. It's the perfect place to spend the afternoon and catch the sunset. For even more unique restaurants and shops, check out Riviera Village, a cozy neighborhood in South Redondo Beach. Ride your bike, window shop, or relax at one of the luxurious day spas. On the other side of the city is North Redondo Beach which offers a fun urban retail experience. Grab tickets for the Civic Light Opera, buy fresh flowers, or dine in style. Whatever your mood, North Redondo is perfect for a day exploring or a night on the town.
Less than an hour away from Los Angeles, once you've visited your favorite TV and movie sets, make a trip to Hollywood to see the stars on the Walk of Fame. There's so much to do in Los Angeles that you might want to make more than a day of it! Less than an hour east, you'll find Anaheim, home of the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland. Once you've met Mickey and his friends, head south and meet the real life animal versions at the San Diego Zoo. Wherever you turn, you're sure to find something for the whole family.
Whether you're interested in something on the beach or in the city, Redondo has plenty of options to fit your taste and your wallet. For a romantic beach getaway, look at hotels around the Redondo Beach marina and pier like Portofino Hotel and Marina or Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach Hotel. There are also plenty of accommodation options in the city. Since the city is relatively small, no matter where you stay you'll have easy access to any activity!
Redondo Beach is just ten minutes south of Los Angeles International Airport which makes getting there easier than a lot of Los Angeles destinations! Redondo Beach is centered mostly around the Pacific Coast Highway which can get congested, especially during the summer. Avoid the traffic and parking by using Beach Cities Transit, BCT. Two fixed-routes, 102 and 109, provide convenient north-south service between Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and El Segundo as well as east-west transit to the City of Torrance.
