Redondo Beach: a little drive, a lot to do

 

You’ve got 48 hours to explore and enjoy Redondo Beach, a 90-minute drive north to the area that Angelinos refer to as the South Bay. Where to go and what to do? Redondo Beach has much to offer, whether you want laid-back or action-packed. Here are a few scenes in and around this beach city of 65,000.

The main attraction: The wide, sandy expanse at Redondo Beach will be much more populated come summer. The months prior to Memorial Day offer solitude to locals and visitors.

Much of the pier was replaced after a spectacular fire in 1988. A sure thing: lunch or dinner at Kincaid’s Bay House on the pier. Good food; great ocean views.
