I'm kind of paralysed since I came to US because I have no car yet. But I couldn't believe there is such a beautiful place near Torrance which is accessible via direct bus (route 344). Shoreline park is a beautiful place to watch amazing sunset. We reached at 5PM and started walking on the park and cliffs. It is so... More

Love to walk the cliffs and see Catalina in the distance. Many times I've seen dolphins and whales. Point Vincente whale center is nearby.

Love this place! Beautiful trails and Jim makes you feel like a real Cowgirl! We are on vacation from Kentucky and it felt like home. Not only is your time spent on the trails but if you haven't rode for awhile he teaches safety and how to treat your horse. Jim makes sure you are comfortable and the horses are... More

My wife and I are always seeking out new places to walk that combine ocean views and scenic landscaping. Yesterday, while driving to San Pedro to visit the U.S.S. Iowa we drove through Palos Verdes and discovered the Palos Verdes Shoreline Park. The park appears to be as far from the typical Los Angeles area as possible, yet is only... More

It's actually called Portuguese Bend Reserve in Palos Verdes. It is just so truly a place to go to if U want a real ocean view. It's a bit of a drive from LAX, but it is really worth it. Palos Verdes also has a brand new Art Center just down the street and it The Waferer Chapel designed by... More

Palos Verdes , PV the locals call it, is less than 30 minutes south of LAX and world removed. The rocky coast and high cliffs provide an extraordinary view of the Pacific, plus Long Beach Harbor and the Santa Monica Bay.

There is a fence protecting you from the edge of the cliff, which is a steep drop-off. This is near the Point Vicente Lighthouse, There is an absolutely marvelous hiking trail, overlooking the ocean. It's an easy walk, mostly flat, with spectacular views. Further, there is a small museum called the The Point Vicente Interpretive Center. Tiny, but worthwhile. A... More
