Redondo Beach, CA Travel, Photos Information and News
REDONDO BEACH, CA--Whether you skate, blade, bike, or even glide in your
favorite baby buggy as mommy or daddy thrills you with an exciting ride at the
beach, rust never sleeps. Redondo Beach, the city that "wheelie" moves, has
more wheels per capita than any U.S. city--and they really know how to use them!
We recently visited the Redondo Beach Lobster Festival at Seaside Lagoon and
were amazed by the volumes of people moving along the street courtesy of wheels
attached to their feet or propelled by them. The Los Angeles County beach
destination located in the South Bay is accustomed to a fast pace, no doubt.
Commercial airline pilots zoom into town (via Los Angeles International
Airport) flying jumbo jets that move 500 mph, brainy scientists from Northrop
Grumman invent methods to propel vehicles faster & further into space, and
well-grounded residents & visitors who want to get between point A & B the
quickest way all have discovered that wheels are the way to go.
Getting to Redondo Beach: For the most part you'll be limited to
traditional methods of transportation coming into the city. You can take taxis,
rent cars, or ride buses to get to the beach, strewn with a handful of
affordable and luxury hotels where most guests stay. Redondo Beach is approx. 15
minutes from LAX.
What to do: Rent a bicycle or roller blades along the beach path at
concessions that are open most every day. After you've checked out the city and
gotten your ball bearings, you can decide what you'd like to pursue. There's
surfing, swimming in the Pacific Ocean, and one of our favorites, the boat
tours. Tours include fishing trips, whale watching cruises, and a cute
semi-submersible boat where you can ride around the bay and look at the sea-life
through big windows.
Where to eat: In addition to being the Wheel City, Redondo Beach
boasts the most ocean and bay view restaurants on the Southern California coast.
Cuisine runs the spectrum with unique ethnic themed cafes & diners, but a
specialty is the fish market at King Harbor where you can select fresh catch and
have it prepared on the spot.
For a vacation that will really move you, make Redondo Beach your home base
for trips to Universal Studios Hollywood, Disneyland, and nearby Muscle Beach in
Venice--a place you can get to fast with your set of wheels. More information is
