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.

When you think of Los Angeles wide open spaces don’t always come to mind. The good news is the South Bay is unique. We’re only a few miles from LA but that distance makes a big difference.

Lastly, if you want to really get out on the water and see some sea life consider visiting the Redondo Beach Harbor and renting a Stand-up Paddleboard. These boards provide you with an opportunity to get up close to dolphins, sea lions and seals.
