Manhattan Beach is about 20 miles south of the Los Angeles Airport. When I visited Kimberly last month, this was the first place I went after picking up my car rental. I spent the morning walking along the boardwalk, peeking into the little shops along the streets, and taking some photos with my new camera!
Manhattan Beach’s City Motto is “Sun, Sand, Sea” which just about sums it up perfectly. There are volley ball courts all along the beach, mountain ranges on the horizon, and a lot of surfers hanging around. I thought it would be kind of silly to go from Manhattan, New York to Manhattan Beach, California, but I am so glad I did.
The drive along the Pacific Coast was absolutely breathtaking. I didn’t even mind being stuck in the famous California traffic, because it gave me time to take in the sights. I saw a beautiful white heron flying along the road, which was really neat! I will definitely go to Manhattan Beach again next time I’m in Los Angeles.
If you’re in the area, I would recommend the following:
- Manhattan Beach Post if you’re trying to impress somebody or go on a romantic brunch or dinner date.
- Wahoo’s Fish Tacos if you’re hungry and want fresh tacos and big serving sizes.
- Manhattan Beach Creamery for a sweet treat after your meal!
Have you been before? Where should I go next time?
