Torrance is large, so some places are safer than others. I do not feel safe going too far out at night alone, but that might be true for any city. My street itself is safe, and so are most of the residential areas. Shopping malls attracts the most crime, and I believe there are some home burglaries. Coyotes are common right now, so do not leave animals unattended outside.

We're really close to the beach, which is absolutely gorgeous. Depending on where you go and what time you go, there's usually many places where there's not many people, so it's almost like a private beach just for you! The cliffs are also great places to hike, along with the meadows beside them. Families will also enjoy the tide pools nearby. The quality of all of these public places are amazing, and we really do appreciate that.
Great public schools, shopping centers, and weather. Relatively safe, still a concern but I personally haven't had any major issues. Overall not very exciting, but it is close to beaches and many LA and OC attractions.
