Manhattan Beach Boulevard runs from the Pacific coast and ends just shy of Interstate 110. There's plenty to keep you entertained throughout the day. Here are a few attractions along the strip, all culminating into a relaxing beachfront evening right around your Manhattan Beach hotel, The Sea View Inn..
Breakfast options are abundant on the boulevard. Blue Star Donuts features flavors such as raspberry rosemary buttermilk and poppy seed lemon buttermilk donuts. They even had a Bacon Maple Glazed donut! For those looking for a heartier or lighter breakfast, head over to Noah's Bagels for coffee, bagels, sandwiches, and other treats.
Start the morning off with a nice walk at the Alondra Community Regional Park. The park opens at sunrise and closes at sunset. Sites include a wooded prairie with a large lake over 53 acres. There are several other parks along the boulevard including Polliwog Park, Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden, and Manhattan Heights Park.
"Soulful", "highly personal" and "playful" are all words that have been used to describe the ambiance and food at Manhattan Beach Post Restaurant (also known as M.B. Post) located within a 1960's post office.
Chef and co-owner David LeFevre pulled together fifteen years of culinary experience here and abroad, at such renowned places as Charlie Trotters and Water Grill. For M.B. Post, Michelin-starred LeFevre has created a rustic menu, and offers small production wines and hand-crafted cocktails.
LeFevre refers to M.B. Post as a "Social House" where friends and family can "sample their way through the menu", sharing seasonal dishes that stand on their own merits. Both the cuisine and the atmosphere were created to be a reflection of the vibrant yet casual nature of South Bay itself. This unique concept allows guests to enjoy and explore a wider variety of tastes, textures and elements.

I absolutely love this restaurant! The food is always fresh and thoughtfully prepared. You can order fresh oyster platters that are so fresh and delicious and out of this world. My favorite dishes are of course any fresh seafood on the menu, the crab cakes and I really enjoy the char salad. delicious. We have also tried the chowder and the shrimp poboy which was fantastic. Small place and very popular, reservations recommended! Enjoy!
