Located just a few miles from LAX, the South Bay is an easy commute to the financial and business districts of Downtown Los Angeles and Century City. Also located nearby are the training facilities of the Lakers, Clippers and Kings, as well as the many business parks related to the aerospace industry.
The tech industry campuses of Silicon Beach are within a 20 minute commute of Manhattan Beach, while studios and agencies are both in the South Bay and Downtown LA. Business executives, athletes, independent entrepreneurs or anyone looking to effortlessly enjoy a blend of coastal living and a metropolitan backdrop all find the South Bay an ideal place to live.
Locals often refer to living in Manhattan Beach as living within "The Bubble", because most residents spend their free time enjoying the beach, surfing, community events, concerts in the park, breaking away to nearby Palos Verdes for golf, horseback riding, cycling, scuba diving, exploring tide pools or escaping for a staycation at Terranea Resort. With so much to participate in after work and school and on weekends, there's little reason to leave the South Bay, except for the occasional game or concert at Staples Center, a trip to the Hollywood Bowl, baseball at Dodgers Stadium or to go root for hometown college favorites, USC or UCLA.
