First time visiting this area. Very impressed, modern, cool vibe. Could be the new transit spot instead of sad LAX!

We drove to MB for dinner and to walk around. What a great beach town. Dinner was awesome and the stores, pier and homes were great to see. I wish we had more time to enjoy.

Lots of shoreline and beach to enjoy. There were many volleyball nets set up to use. The surfers were fun to watch.

Really nothing like the Vegas strip. This was approx. a mile walk from where we stayed, and was totally worth it. We took in the beautiful morning cool temperature and as the sun broke through the morning over cast we were making it closer to the pier. With that we made multiple stops in stores, thrift shops, restaurants and bars... More

We had 5 hours to kill before the 2nd leg of our journey back to the UK from Honolulu and many people had mentioned getting a cab to Manhattan Beach to escape the city and it's traffic. Twenty minutes out of LAX & we were sitting on the golden sand looking out to the Pacific for the last time of... More

After picking up a rental car and looking for a place to "kill" 3 hours before swinging back through the airport to get the rest of our party, the rental agency clerk suggested we visit Manhattan Beach. WHAT A GEM!!! We fell in love with the seaside town. We spent 4 days in LA and that was enough -- next... More

Manhattan Beach has a great beach and the strand is a great place to walk, ride a bike and people watch. If you want to experience the Southern California beach scene this is a great beach town with restaurants, bars and plenty to see. Parking can be a little tricky but there are pay lots close by. Great beach and... More

My daughter took us to this beach area. It was absolutely beautiful. The beach was spotless and it was fun to watch the surfers ride the waves. My children rented bikes and road all along the path down to Hermosa beach. The homes were stunning overlooking the ocean and it was fairly inexpensive to rent ( $8 per hour). There... More
