For one thing... things start to neck down in Hermosa. Aviation is a busy north/south alternative to PCH, however it merges into PCH in Hermosa. There are almost no good north south/alternatives in HB. Once you get to RB, you can use PCH or Catalina.

Hi PPK, Aloha Nui Loa!


Some notables from a fun online article:



"A Few Things You May Not Have Known About Torrance (Unless You're From There)"

Chuck Norris is kind of a big deal here
Because 1) he went to high school at North Torrance High (there was a petition to have it renamed Norris High), and 2) his first dojo is here.
(also a regular at Del Conte's on PCH, across from Zamperini Field )


What do Brenda Walsh and Buffy the Vampire Slayer have in common?
They both went to Torrance High. You're gonna want to sit down for this: West Beverly and Sunnydale are the SAME SCHOOL -- Torrance High, which also starred in She's All That and Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Torrance has one of the US's best craft beer scenes
Really: Monkish, Smog City, The Dudes', Absolution, and Strand Brewing are all based there, and King Harbor and Phantom Carriage are nearby neighbors.

We have the best hidden beach in LA
It's called Rat Beach, borders both Palos Verdes and Redondo Beach, and it's semi-private thanks to 1) a huge hill behind it and 2) the fact that there aren't any roads to it -- you've gotta walk either from Torrance Beach or the Palos Verdes Beach and Athletic Club.

[Linked Image]RAT Beach outtakes by Jennifer Coffey, on Flickr

Quentin Tarantino once called Torrance home
So did Snoop Dogg, though whether they ever hung out together is subject to debate
(he went to Narbonne High and watched Kung Fu movies @ the Carson Twin Cinema Theaters on Avalon)

We've got the biggest Oktoberfest in all of LA
It's at Alpine Village, and if you've never been... you don't really live in Torrance.
(used to host a kick-ass Polish Festival as well)

Our mall is older and bigger than your mall
Del Amo Mall predates the Mall of America, and, at two MILLION square feet, was the biggest mall in America for many years.

If you're not having a burger at Snax... you're having a burger at Steve's
Or both. Probably both.
(dunno about Snax - but Steve's is the go-to, with four Torrance locations to serve your needs)

Someone you know took at least one semester at El Camino College
Aka one of the top-rated community colleges in all of America.
(Aka North Torrance High 2.0.)

You should try to be more careful.

Damn, did the fins get you? Or was it a nasty slip down the rocks?

Both happened on knee high days- bruise at the beginning of summer when my board bounced up in the shore pound and hit my ass. The second a couple of weeks ago at the bottom of the Cove trail, slipped on a sand covered rock.

Still knee high, but I have better luck when I "cheat" and get out of the South Bay-
