My Backyard

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.

Grab the Van and Gogh

Are you feeling artistic after being stuck in lockdown for the last year? If you said yes, we have the perfect place to put on the top of your list to visit this year. The Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit in Los Angeles is a socially distanced and interactive art installation that projects over 500,000 cubic feet of Vincent van Gogh’s famous art. According to their website, the artwork is “astonishing in size and breathtakingly imaginative, (where) you will experience Van Gogh’s art in a completely new and unforgettable way.” The Immersive Van Hogh Exhibit is located at a secret venue in the heart of Los Angeles so it should only be a maximum of a 45-minute car ride from the SeaView Inn. Make sure to purchase your tickets beforehand since they’re selling out quickly!

But First, Coffee!

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

The Green Store – Hop on a bike and ride to 2151 Hermosa Ave, Hermosa Beach, CA 90254

Don’t forget, The Sea View Inn offers incredible bikes to all our guests at no charge!

Only an hour to the north of The Sea View Inn you’ll find the iconic Malibu Beach. We obviously love the beaches and vibe of Manhattan Beach more than what you’ll find in Malibu, but a drive down PCH to our sister beach in the north is pretty special.  For those of you that make the trip here are our top 5 favorites in Malibu!

  1. John’s Garden – This one-of-a-kind sandwich shop is the perfect post-surf destination to grab a bite and do a little people-watching.
  2. Zuma Beach – We prefer this spot over Malibu Beach, especially for families. More parking, fewer rocks, and wonderful waves.
  3. Malibu Farm – If seeing the Malibu Pier is important to you make a reservation at the Malibu Farm! It’s on the pier and the food is outstanding.
  4. Pointe Dume Natural Preserve – This amazing hike enables you to burn a few calories and take in great views.
  5. Nobu Malibu – Before you head back to the MB swing in for a drink at Nobu. You’re certain to see celebrities and a breathtaking ocean view.

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.
