People are friendly and not snobbish like in MB and I feel safe walking at night. Lotsa restaurants and the pier area is very vibrant. Weather is perfect year round and commute is good if you stick to PCH. I work in LAX and it is a pleasant drive. Home prices are protected so you won’t feel the effect of recession. We do however need a dog beach here, make it happen Mr. Mayor!

I really love my community and my city. However, it is not perfect. The biggest problem to me is the homeless people. There are two churches where many homeless people and drug addicts flock to, and they can cause disturbances. One other thing I would change is the pier. I feel as though it is the reason the nightlife is worse than that of Hermosa Beach or Manhattan. However, the Riviera is always super fun to visit at night. Overall, though, I love my city!
Redondo Beach California is a great mid size community along the coast of Los Angeles. There are many restaurants and shops around the neighborhood and a great pier to visit with family and friends. The beaches do not get to crowded, so its easy to go for a nice walk. The weather averages in the 70's F most days with a little bit of rainfall here and there. The school district is very good from elementary to high school, which makes this location ideal for families. The neighbor usually decorate for holiday seasons such as Halloween and Christmas. Overall, this little mid size community is great place. I recommend recommend Redondo Beach as a place to live or visit.
