As a lifelong resident of Manhattan Beach I'd have to say yes. Perfect city for young adults. Miles of sandy beaches, great nightlife, and wonderful people.

In LA terms, it isn't how many miles but how many minutes. Generally, the trip can be made in under 10 minutes unless it is Thanksgiving, etc, when many people are making the same trip and traffic backs up on Sepulveda. Then it might be 15. It is a great place to live for "road warriors" because they can get to the airport quickly but not have airport noise AND have great schools and beach proximity. This is part of the reason Manhattan Beach real estate is higher priced than Hermosa Beach or Redondo Beach. For more information, see our page below: ... more

East Manhattan Beach is basically divided into three sections -- north of Marine, Manhattan Village, a planned gated community, where most homes are town homes but the few "estate homes" which are single family homes are generally on lots of about 5000 square feet.

Between Marine and Manhattan Beach Blvd, east of Redondo Avenue you have the Liberty Village area, with lot sizes usually 50 x 100, and west of Redondo Avenue is the Manhattan Heights area, with varying lot sizes, but most either 50 x 140 or 50 x 150. Finally, in the "Mira Costa" section (named for the nearby high school), the lot sizes range from 50 x 125 to 50 x 150, with some very large lots of over 10,000 square feet.

Streets in east Manhattan also tend to be wider than in the Tree Section or Sand Section, except for 8th street near the water tower, which is quite narrow.

To read more about all the various sections, please see our webpage, which has listings and area descriptions:

Manhattan Beach is comprised of 4 primary sections, each with unique and appealing neighborhood amenities. The Tree Section has very strong family appeal, with quiet streets and a park-like setting. It's composed mostly of single family homes, with full lots starting at 40 ft X 112 ft. The tree section is located just east of the Sand Section, which has higher density living (with more apartments and townhomes). Every Manhattan Beach neighborhood has access to outstanding schools - some of the best nationwide. ... more

Hi Vincent,

The answers here about boundries, pricing, etc. relative to Manhattan Beach are pretty well detailed below. The next step would be to get pre-qualified for a home loan so you can see exactly how far your purchasing dollar will go.

From there, get yourself a solid Buyer's Agent who can help you locate the best buys and the right home for you. If I can be of assistance, please call me anytime in my Manhattan Beach office at (310) 802-5736.

Hi Sima,

I have living here since 1984 and unfortunately I have never heard of any local belly dancing classes. It looks like there are a couple not far from here, including:
Aisha Ali Belly Dancing:‎
3270 Kelton Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90034
(310) 474-4867‎

It seems like there are a lot of Yoga studios and personal training facilities. My preference is Jiu Jitsu and I can talk about that forever. I’d love to chat with if you’d like.

bottom line is so cal beach swimming is good from May-Sept. with some very nice days in the other months that you can choose at your own discretion, but you probably won't be swimming in the ocean. the navy seals train at Coronado bay near San Diego and they freeze there a$$ off and many of them suffer from hypothermia from being in the water too long during the winter months and even fall. granted they're in the ocean a lot longer than you will be, but the point is 55 degree water is not tourist or leisure-time swimming water. it's for navy seals and surfers with wet suits. stick to the summer. ... more

Yes, Manhattan Beach has the annual 10k race. It is a ton of fun and the whole community gets involved. The streets are lined with residents and the finish is always on the pier. It is usually on October 4th, and the race kicks off the Old Hometown Fair, in and around Live Oak Park. I have participated in this race numerous times as a kid, and I still go to enjoy the fair. ... more

The best way to get from Manhattan Beach to Century City is to take the 'Secret Route', which is optimized for the North West end of Manhattan Beach (near the El Porto section). Take Highland Blvd north which turns into Vista Del Mar. Go all the way until turning right on Culver Blvd. Go eastbound until turning left on Overland. Here's a handy Google Map that shows the way...,+CA&daddr=Vista+del+Mar+to:34.014819,-118.405495+to:Century+City,+CA&hl=en&geocode=%3BFTwlBgIdMp7w-A%3B%3B&mra=dpe&mrcr=0&mrsp=2&sz=12&via=1,2&sll=33.96899,-118.403091&sspn=0.186214,0.363922&ie=UTF8&z=12

While you can't beat the beach for having fun.. Manhattan Beach has two large Parks. Live Oak is the place for softball and tennis. There is also a place for little kids to play and a dog run for pups to meet new friends. Polliwog park has a lovely lake and a playground with lots of things to do for the under 5 crowd. Polliwog also has one of the original homes built in Manhattan Beach when the entire city was mostly giant sand dunes..... and speaking of sand dunes.. Sand Dune Park off Bell Ave has one of the last remaining sand dunes in the city. If you are looking for a great workout try climbing the dune a few times. ... more
