Manhattan Beach Reviews

Manhattan Beach - Gorgeous Beach City 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( Apr 26, 2018) After living in and around Manhattan Beach for nearly a decade, I think that this beach city is filled with great things to do at all times of the year. The neighborhood features great restaurants and several expansive shopping centers. There are fantastic bike routes located all ...Read More around the city, as well as several peaceful parks to relax in.

The weather, as always in southern California, is gorgeous at all times of the year. It is very rare for any sort of bad weather to cruise in off the coast. Restaurant and shopping selection is made extremely easy with a wide variety of options to choose from.

The neighborhood is extremely safe and protected very well by the Manhattan Beach Police Department. In addition to great shopping centers and restaurants, the community is great, but there can be some noise from the constant flow of airplanes landing and taking off from the Los Angeles Airport, just a few miles down the road.
