Redondo Beach is one of the most gorgeous cities in California. I absolutely adored my visit to this great city. The beach was one of the cleanest that I have ever visited. I was stunned by how glamorous all of the people visiting this beach also seemed. It was my impression that Redondo Beach is for very wealthy and affluent people. It felt like I was one of the glamorous people hanging out on the beach. I think that I even saw some famous people while I was tanning on Redondo Beach. I was also very impressed with the great nightlife in this fun filled city.

The nightclubs and bars in Redondo Beach are some of the most sophisticated that California has to offer. There are also some fun beach bars that are definitely worth checking out in Redondo Beach. Because I am obsessed with shopping, my favorite activity in Redondo Beach was going shopping at the boutiques. I absolutely loved all of the high end boutiques in this beautiful city. I even bought a couple of designer purses at some of the boutiques in this city. I must admit that this city also felt incredibly safe to walk around at.
