Olde Torrance is the most unique 'town' feeling you can get in all of the Southbay, more like neighborhoods in Santa Barbara or Old Pasadena. People are friendly. It has a micro climate that can't be beat, nice ocean breeze daily, but less fog and cloud, and never too hot. We have lived here for 30 years and it only gets better. Great shopping and still only 15 minutes to LAX.

I love living here, it's a great community!
Stores tend to close early and it's a quaint area with typically young families or retired folks. The business around here are typically family owned and are nice.
