Torrance is very safe and friendly. Not very diverse because the city has a lot of Asians but everyone is friendly! Schools are very competitive with each other but overall they are all a family. There is sometimes traffic in Torrance on major streets with freeways but there are also streets that often time are not busy at all. The job opportunities are low currently. Haven't seen many places hiring. The food that can be found in Torrance have got to be the best. From ramen or tacos, it's all delicious.

Torrance is an amazing city! You are surrounded by many shopping centers and restaurants! It's not difficult to find anything around here and its the perfect place to bring a guest. Although there aren't many places to go with children, its a family friendly neighborhood! We even have a beach near by! There are many parks and recreation places to go to as well. If you are looking for a city to relax and spend a couple days at torrance is the way to go!
Torrance is awesome! Super friendly neighborhood, with an eager to help community, and healthy environment. The people here are very diverse, which means that the food here is also very diverse. Most foods are available here, and it allows you to experience other cultures as well. One of the other pluses of Torrance is that our mall, Del Amo Mall is one of the biggest malls in California. Overall, I believe Torrance is one of the best cities here in Southern California.
