Situated along a gorgeous stretch of coastline defined by white sandy beaches lies the idyllic city of Manhattan Beach. Upscale restaurants, high-end shopping and favorite haunts co-exist in this quaint, walkable town, lending this South Bay gem it’s nickname of “The Pearl of the South Bay”. With its continuous influx of athletes, celebrities, and tech pioneers, Manhattan Beach is home to a sophisticated, family-friendly residential population enjoying life in a town that boasts what GQ Magazine named “one of the top six beaches in the nation”.
Manhattan Beach is home to many parks, award-winning schools, a new library and a miles-long greenbelt. The iconic Manhattan Beach pier anchors downtown and includes the Roundhouse Aquarium Teaching Center, a favorite destination for locals and tourists alike. One of the most unique features of Manhattan Beach is its seaside pathway called the Strand. Cyclists, runners and walkers can enjoy miles of scenic views alongside elegant coastal estates and crystal sandy beaches.
Since its incorporation in 1912, Manhattan Beach has maintained its hometown feel while accommodating its upscale residential neighborhoods. Annual celebrations such as the Hometown Fair, Holiday Fireworks, International Surf Festival and Six-Man Beach Volleyball Tournament as well as philanthropic events including the Tour de Pier and the Richstone Walk give Manhattan Beach its unique sense of community. In a city of 35,000-plus, these events provide a way to connect with fellow residents.

Recently declared by 24/7 Wall Street as “the nation’s best city to live” and located just three miles south of LAX and nineteen from downtown Los Angeles, this beautiful coastal retreat is a lovely place to call home.
