The Los Angeles South Bay is perhaps one of the best kept secrets in Southern California. Situated close to the airport and roughly halfway between Orange County and the metropolitan Los Angeles area, it provides easy access to everything that the area has to offer including a stay at the beautiful Seaview Inn in Manhattan Beach.
But the beauty of the South Bay "bubble," as locals call it, is that many activities are mere steps away. Want to sample some of the best that each of the South Bay's three beach cities have to offer? It's easy (and FUN!) to do in a day.
As the weather cools down it's tempting to stay inside with a good book and a comfy blanket. Don't let the winter blues steal your sunshine. Here are 4 Ways to Get Outside at Manhattan Beach.
The Strand Manhattan Beach, also known as Marvin Braude Bike Path, is a paved bicycle path that starts at Will Rogers State Beach in Pacific Palisades and continues 22 miles south to Torrance County Beach. There are a few places along the way where the trail becomes a road for a short while, but those are few and far between.
The Strand is frequently seen on television shows and in commercials and movies. Most of the path is for cycling only, but the section between Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach has a separate walking path as well.
