After moving here 6 months ago from Denver and living temporarily in Venice for 2 months (gross!) and looking at 64 apartments everywhere from Hollywood to Redondo Beach and everywhere inbetween......I have to say...I am VERY pleased with my decision to live in Manhattan Beach! I only live a few blocks from the Pier (by the way, the MOST BEAUTIFUL PIER AROUND!!) and I LOVVVVE being able to walk downtown to the shops, restaurants, cafes, yoga studios, Pier, The Strand, the bike path.....it's pretty awesome! I am making my way to patronize every business there...just because I can! :)
Whether I take a 4 hour bike ride up or down the coast with my doggie in the basket, or take a sunset stroll with him along the Strand to visit all the other dog owners or take a guest downtown to let them choose which restaurant they would like to try out while window shopping along the way! it's all pretty darn good, I must say!
Somwhat upscale area and crowd (which is nice consdiering other areas around LA!!) and while it does lack a certain amount of "edgy character" it also lacks things like hoards of homeless people, visible numerous drug dealers and addicts wandering around, and just generally unsafe/creepy vibes. Though, I do realize that we are in LA (a ginormous city and everything that comes along with that)...I really like Manhattan Beach and all its high end conveniences and luxuries! And by the way.....I've never had this many guests in my life time! Everyone wants to come visit me after seeing all the photos I post online and all the cool, delicious, beauty that is Manhattan Beach!
