But if you want to venture beyond our town you might ride bikes along the ocean on our famous Strand, or drive to neighboring towns of Hermosa and Redondo Beach to the South, or Venice and Santa Monica, to the North. We are also conveniently located 20-30 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, and Pasadena where you can catch a Lakers or Kings' game at the Staples Center or a concert at the Nokia Center or a Dodgers game at the Dodgers Stadium. Sightseeing and museum going is endless: Getty Museum, MOMA, LACMA etc. We're 45 minutes to and hour away from Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Universal Studios, & Magic Mountain. Endless possibilities. ...moreless
