Manhattan Beach is one of three towns in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County, along with Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach, that are referred to as the "Beach Cities." The community emanates the vibe of a quintessentially laid-back beach town, complete with surf boards, beach cruisers, and flip flops. However, Manhattan Beach is an affluent community with some of the priciest real estate in the Southern California on a cost per square foot basis.

About Manhattan Beach
Manhattan Beach is everything you’d expect in a Southern California beach community. The vibe here is laid back. Some would call the dress code effortless; a tank top, shorts, and flip flops will suffice in nearly every social setting.
Over the past few decades, the beach and lifestyle attracted a well-heeled crowd, which morphed Manhattan Beach from a sleepy beach town into an upscale community with amenities to match its affluent residents. Many original homes here have been razed and replaced with much larger luxury homes with gorgeously landscaped yards.
Activity buzzes at the beach, which is the social heartbeat of the city. Tons of people cruise The Strand, a bike and pedestrian path that runs along the coast and through Manhattan Beach, day and night. It connects the city to other Los Angeles-area beach communities to the north and south. Weekends at the beach are the busiest when the volleyball courts are packed, and tourists load up the Manhattan Beach Pier to watch surfers catch a ride.
Downtown Manhattan Beach is quite small. A strip of businesses line Highland Avenue for just a few short blocks. However, fun restaurants, bars, and boutiques pack the commercial core. Visitors and residents enjoy year-round sunshine with only an occasional foggy day.
