MB is such a wonderful and amazing town. There are great restaurants, a lovely downtown area, a fantastic beach, an amazing pier, and lively nightlife. Parking is the downside - quite difficult especially during the summer months. The answer is using Uber to deliver you and take you home. The vibe is young and lively. There are also 'old school'...

We live in Hermosa Beach which is directly south of the west side of Manhattan Beach. We like going there when our little town doesn't have something that they have. They have a hair dresser that my wife loves and a shopping area far bigger than ours which includes a Target, Macy's, two Trader Joe's, Old Navy, REI, and many... More

While staying at the Hilton LAX, we took the shuttle and went to Manhattan Beach for the afternoon. It was fun to walk on the pier, visit the small aquarium, watch the surfers and swimmers, stroll the boardwalk and just enjoy the beautiful scenery in this area. There are restaurants and bars and a great ice cream shop with lots... More

For the rest, I guess only interesting for locals. We mainly use it as a stop before taking our flight back to Europe.

This is my "go-to" beach to chill by the ocean. The strand eateries are awesome. People watching is awesome. Walking south to Hermosa Beach Pier and back with my feet in the sand and water is my "therapy". Can be crowded but love it anyhow! I stayed with a friend who lives up the hill (see pic).

Near LAX, 40 minutes or less to downtown LA. The town has a number of restaurants bars and shops. The beach and pier are major attractions.

The ocean view and sunset is spectacular in Manhattan Beach. It's a place to walk, run, bike and most of all relax.

I lived in Manhattan Beach for six years back in the '80's. It was great then and still is. I visit here each time I'm in the LA area. Sometimes it's to eat, sometimes to walk the strand or be on the pike path, sometimes to watch a pro volleyball tournament (beach volleyball originated in Manhattan Beach), sometimes just to...
