Relaxed, fun, affordable and only mildly-pretentious: that is Manhattan Beach. It has a little something for everyone. (Bonus points for being 15 minutes from LAX, we are like the gateway beach destination for LA). And while staying here at Sea View, you should try to do a little bit everything.

Fight the urge to remain cooped up in our cozy,wifi-enabled rooms because our facilities amenities are a great starting point. The first attraction? Manhattan Beach itself. We offer complimentary beach gear rental, including bikes. Manhattan Beach is quite the spot for running and biking and from there you should have no trouble working up an appetite.

If you have no pressing business in L.A., grab a bit of lunch within the walking vicinity. You have available in your footsteps the Local Yoke, Fishbar, Nick's and Fishing With Dynamite, a local favorite. There is no absence of quality dining choices when eating in Manhattan Beach, rated the best beach town in America to chow down by GQ Magazine. After lunch, you have two additional options: see the sights or see the shops.

If you choose sights, you can return to the beach for some sun (even learn to surf) or explore the Manhattan Beach Pier. Travel Advisor has the Roundhouse Marine Studies Lab and Aquarium listed as their number three attraction for those visiting the area. The aquarium is a great place to take the family or visit with a large group, as there are no admission fees. Follow up an aquarium visit with a trip to Polliwog Park and the adjacent Manhattan Beach Botanical Gardens. (Bring a pocket guide and some tasty snacks to liven up your visit if you're not a botany enthusiast). 

Some shopping may need to ensue if you're doing "the most" in Manhattan Beach; there is no shortage of trendy boutiques or familiar establishments. Take a leisurely stroll along the Highland Ave shops or visit Manhattan Village. For more shopping and visitor's suggestions, visit the City of Manhattan Beach's website. 

At the end of the day, your The Sea View Inn at Manhattan Beach suite awaits you. Relax, watch some television or take a dip in our sparkling pool. Contact us and book your reservation now. Much fun awaits!
