The sun is always shinning but the beach is near and keeps the area fresh! Neighbors are kind creating a friendly atmosphere. I would live here again because I enjoy going outdoors and checking out new places, which always seem to be around the area.

Torrance is overall a great place to live. The people are friendly, and the school district is excellent. There is very much diversity in this community. I would choose to live in this place if I could do it all over because I benefit from living here. The local governments are great and interactive with the citizens, and there are six library locations so you can go to one close to home.
Everything, from grocery stores to shopping malls, are nearby. There are lots of options of restaurants, schools, shopping centers, parks, recreational centers, after school tutoring, etc.
