I'm flying in from new York for a meeting in LA and want to do a beach weekend nearby. trying to decide between Santa Monica and Manhattan Beach. I spent a half day in Santa Monica last year and really liked the scene there, especially being able to walk to stores, restaurants, etc. (also went to Venice beach and did not like it, it was not for me). So, my question: should I go back to Santa Monica for the weekend or try Manhattan Beach this time? would I need a car in Manhattan beach or is it walkable, similar to how Santa Monica is walkable? any insight is appreciated! I have never been to Manhattan beach so I only know what I have read on the TA threads.
