Redondo Beach is absolutely amazing! The city is extremely clean with many places to dine in for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The beaches are extremely clean, and the pier is filled with fun activities. There are many places to take photos, enjoy the beach, get food, and spend quality time. The schools are also amazing, the district provides students with the necessary resources to help them succeed and prepare them for the future. The city itself is pretty safe, and if there were anything, local authorities are always on top of it. Redondo is also close to the freeways which allows you easy access to get where ever you desire to go. Although the property is on the more expensive side, the views, people, and cleanliness make up for it.

Beautiful place to live, but can only truly enjoy if you're well off financially. You can't find a decent house here for less than 800k, and the better houses/areas are always over 1 million. Very liberal area. Very safe and family friendly, the problem is the housing affordability. The public schools are excellent. So, if you have enough money or are not expecting a gorgeous house as you would other places, come on over!
I love the location of Redondo beach because I live right near the beach, it’s mostly sunny but we get the ocean breeze, and it’s located close to many other nice areas, such as LA, Manhattan Beach, PV, etc. Also, the high school is really large and offers many courses. The biggest downside is that it is expensive to live here!
