DescriptionAlthough Redondo Beach is just 7 miles south of busy Los Angeles International Airport, it still manages to have the feel of a relaxed resort community. Beautiful beaches, a pleasure pier, a fishing fleet and a harbor lined with restaurants and cafés all contribute to the seaside ambience.
The Pier at Redondo Beach, at the foot of Torrance Boulevard, offers souvenir shops, seafood eateries and nightclubs. King Harbor, along Harbor Drive between Herondo and Beryl streets, has restaurants, hotels and facilities for such activities as boating, sport fishing, bicycling and racquetball. A wide pathway leads bicyclists and pedestrians to the International Boardwalk, which has souvenir shops, an amusement center and fresh fish markets.
SEA Lab , 1021 N. Harbor Dr., is a marine facility housing fish and other sea creatures rescued from power plant intake systems along the California coast. Outdoor touch tanks exhibit everything from small rays to giant lobsters. Guided tours are offered Tues.-Sat.; phone (310) 318-7438.
