If you aren’t well acquainted with the streets of Manhattan Beach, take a trip down Highland Ave. and visit us at the Seaview Inn. Located a few miles north of the pier, the Seaview Inn is a fantastic boutique hotel that is a perfect beach retreat to stay at the next time you find yourself in the South Bay.
One of the biggest questions we get is: What should I do during my next visit to Manhattan Beach? And while the short answer is that a quick Google or Yelp search could help you out, why not take some tips from a local?! With 22 years of experience on the streets of Manhattan Beach, here are some of my local favorites for you to enjoy during your next stay in the South Bay.

If you’re like us, you love coffee! We love coffee in the morning, during that later afternoon lag, and even at night after a fantastic meal. Fortunately, The Sea View Inn at the Beach sits close to many of the South Bay’s finest coffee shops. Many of these amazing places are even within walking distance of the hotel. The Coffee houses not to be missed are
Two Guns Espresso – less than a 2-minute walk from the hotel
Peets Coffee – Peet’s is just a few blocks to the south in Downtown Manhattan Beach
Smokey Hollow – It’s a drive, but it’s a short one and well worth it - 118 Sierra St in El Segundo

Los Angeles is slowly, but surely, opening up again - outdoor dining and unique events popping up all across the city. The Sea View Inn, Manhattan Beach is in perfect proximity to countless activities that are safe and enjoyable for everyone. First off there is a rooftop film festival setting up shop at the Manhattan Village Mall parking structure, which is the first-ever drive-in independent film festival. Along with this is the various new restaurants and shops opening up in the Mall after massive renovations have taken place for most of 2020. Some of the new restaurants include Handel's Homemade Ice Cream and Silverlake Ramen - both Angelino fan favorites. Finally, an upscale pop-up market with unique vendors is also taking place at the Village Mall on February the 6th, perfect for a casual stroll through some of the most unique and classic LA shopping opportunities. All of these events, and more, are taking place within five minutes of the Inn! You will love the South Bay and all that Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, El Segundo, and Redondo Beach have to offer.
