THINGS TO DO

THE ONLY GATED CITY IN AMERICA

Rolling Hills is a private, gated city located atop the scenic hills of the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Southern California.

Incorporated on January 24, 1957, Rolling Hills maintains a ranch style equestrian environment with an enduring respect for

native wildlife and natural surroundings.

• There are no street lights which creates a calming and peaceful rural city to enjoy the stars.

• Properties consist only of one story homes painted white maintaining a country step-back-in-time feeling.

• The city consists of 690 residential homes with 1900 residents.

• There are no apartments, condominiums or commercial buildings.

• Rolling Hills is an equestrian's dream with 23 miles of horse trails and three community riding rings.

• The city covers 3 square miles totaling 1908 acres of lush hills.

• One of the safest cities in America

Its three entrances with guarded gates, provide residents and their guests access to the private roads traversing the city's

hills and canyons. Mostly ranch-style homes, with an occasional Spanish influence, can be seen in the estates, most featuring

large yards bordered by low split-rail fences and bridle trails. Some homes are accented by breathtaking views of the Los

Angeles Basin, and panoramic ocean views from Catalina Island to Malibu and Newport Beach. Privacy and serenity are

highly prized in this exclusive city.

John Van Hamersveld with his mural “Hermosa’s Great Wave.” Photo by Kevin Cody

Life in the South Bay

is an endless summer

A90-foot-long, 19-foot tall surf mural at the corner of

Hermosa Avenue and 14th Street in downtown Hermosa

Beach shows the unmistakable influence of the “Endless

Summer” poster from the mid 1960s. The mural was created

by Palos Verdes artist John Van Hamersveld and

unveiled this past June. In 1963 Van Hamersveld was a 22-

year-old art director at Surfer Magazine when he was asked by filmmaker

Bruce Brown to do a poster for his movie about two young surfers

chasing an endless summer. The poster is now in the Los Angeles and

New York Museums of Modern Art. But Hermosa visitors can see Van

Hamersveld art, writ large, any time of day or night.

The Hermosa Beach Murals Committee commissioned the mural, one

of five throughout the downtown, because the ocean informs every

aspect of South Bay life, from its food, art, architecture and dress to work

habits (good and bad), physical conditioning (good), peculiar, high

pitched accents (dolphins?) and chaotic behavior (from the chaos theory

that governs wind and waves and people who enjoy the wind and

waves).

If you follow just one suggestion out of all the suggestions on the following

pages, do what the locals do. Go to the beach. Walk across the

sand to the ocean’s edge. Then, go in the water. Or, if the water’s too cold

or too rough, walk along the water’s edge. North or south, it doesn’t matter.

After you’ve rinsed the sand from your feet and drained the saltwater

from your ears, you’re ready for a Margarita and fish tacos while waiting

to see the green flash. Or rent a bike for a ride along The Strand, with

the ocean on one side of you and ocean-inspired homes on the other.

All those people you see who you think should be working? They’re

chasing the endless summer.

going on within – and not just hanging placidly on the walls.”

Through September 27, experience 30 monumental works by acclaimed

German artist Norbert Tadeusz (1940 – 2011). Tadeusz was among the first

artists to study with the legendary Joseph Beuys in Düsseldorf in the early 1960s

and was himself a respected professor. He has been associated with German figurative

painting of the 1980s, often referred to as Neo-Expressionism or The

New Wild. TAdeusz’s work is being presented in collaboration with the Los

w Though long known as the Mayberry of the South Bay, El Segundo’s downtown

has quietly become a dining, entertainment center. Kiss’s Gene Simons

has partnered with local impresario Michael Zislis for the rock-themed Rock N’

Brew. Petros Kafe offers artisan Greek cuisine and the El Segundo Brewery tap

room is leading the craft brew renaissance. Richmond Street Bar & Grill and the

Purple Orchid keep the downtown’s old school tradition alive. The Little

Gourmet at the south end of Main street has just eight tables, but if you want

pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and pastas, this is where you go to get them.

HERMOSA BEACH

The Hermosa/Manhattan Strand

South Hermosa to North Manhattan waterfront

w For nature lovers, this oceanfront walking and bicycling path offers views of

surfers, fishermen, dolphins and migrating whales, plus a chance to see the elusive

green flash at sunset. For architectural fans, The Strand offers the opportunity

to view the work of world renowned architects from modern pioneers such

as Richard Neutra and Ray Kappe to their contemporary proteges, including

Dean Nota, Patrick Killen, Grant Fitzpatrick, Louie Tomaro, Larry Peha and

Michael Lee. It doesn’t take a big lot to make a big architectural statement.

Surfing

Any block from South Redondo to North Manhattan

w Locals claim if you can surf South Bay waves you can surf anywhere. It’s not

because the surf is so big, though 20-foot faces are common in the winter. It’s

because the surf is so unpredictable. On the positive side, the waves are rarely

crowded because one block is as good as the next. If the waves in front of the

parking lot at 45th in Manhattan are crowded, simply move a block north or

south. In summer, Manhattan gets the best of the south swells. Hermosa and

Redondo pick up the smaller west swells. All three cities pick up north winter

swells. Early is better because the westerly wind usually kicks in by 10 a.m.

Medium tides are generally best. Summer water temps are in the mid 60s to low

70s. Unless the sun is shining, a spring suit or 3/2 suit is recommended.

Surfboard rentals are available at Jeffers on 14th St, Hermosa, next to The Strand

and Noble Park. Tarsan Stand Up Paddling (935 Hermosa Ave., Hermosa; 831

N. Harbor Dr., Redondo) rents SUPs and offers lessons, as does Nikau Kai (1300

Highland, Ave., Manhattan Beach) and Olympus Boards (4807 Torrance Blvd.,

Torrance). Most local surf shops, including Spyder Surf and Pier Surf on Pier

Plaza, Becker on upper Pier, Jack’s on PCH and ET on Aviation rent stand-ups

and surfboards. Dive N’ Surf in Redondo Beach also rents SUPs, which may be

paddled in King Harbor with a personal flotation device. If you’ve never surfed

or stand-up paddled, take a lesson. It’s not as easy as it looks.

Beach volleyball

w Sand volleyball courts spread out on either side of the pier and are open to

anyone with their own ball. Most summer weekends, pro and amateur tournaments

are held on the courts immediately north of the pier. The California

Association of Beach Volleyball holds tournaments almost every weekend. The

AAU Junior Olympics tournament will attract the best young players in the

country (July 11, 12).The West Coast Jr. Olympic Games are July 23-26 Both are

in Hermosa.

This year’s Smackfest, the largest coed fours tournament in the world is on the

beach, south of the pier on Saturday, July 18. Professionals will compete in Dave

Williams Memorial 4 player tourney for $5,000 in prize money. The day

includes a fashion show and live concert.

August 6 to 8, the world’s best professional beach volleyball players will be

north of the pier for the National Volleyball League $75,000 Hermosa Beach

Open.

Open ocean swims

w Triathletes, masters and lap swimmers are invited to participate in free ocean

workouts each Tuesday at 6 a.m. and every other Friday at 6 p.m. Through the

summer on the north side of the Hermosa Beach pier. The swims are organized

Downtown Hermosa Shopping

Hermosa and Pier avenues, between The Strand and Ardmore

PCH, First to 12th Street

w Hermosa may be the most pedestrian and bike friendly city in Southern

California. Because the city is only 1.3 square miles and parking is a challenge,

residents prefer to park their cars on Friday and not move them until work on

Monday. They don’t need to. Shops range from the second generation

Seymour’s Jewelers to Gum Tree gift shop and café at 238 Pier Ave. Hermosa

has the largest concentration of surf shops, possibly in the world, including

Spyder, ET, Pier Surf, Jack’s and Becker. Hermosa’s surf shops are ground zero

for men’s and women’s California fashion trends. Those long, baggy board

shorts started here and now they’re over, replaced by shorter shorts made of fast

drying, stretchy material. All the shops sell and rent locally built surfboards,

which are works of art. For the ultimate California fashion statement, get a tattoo.

Hermosa has four highly regarded tattoo parlors: Hermosa Ink at 8th and

Hermosa Ave., Yer Cheat’n Heart on Pier Plaza, Third Street Tattoo at Third and

Pacific Coast Hwy., and Lovesick Tattoo at 1010 Aviation Blvd. Now you’re

ready to walk home. Unless it’s a First Thursday of the month when the stores

MANHATTAN BEACH

Beach volleyball

Manhattan Pier Beach Volleyball Walk of Fame

w The history of beach volleyball was written in the sands of the Beach Cities.

The 2015 Charlie Saikley Sixman Volleyball Tournament (July 30, 31) at the

Manhattan Beach Pier is one of the sport’s largest (up to 50,000 fans), most colorful

(teams play in costumes) and competitive amateur tournament. The professional

AVP/IMG Manhattan Beach Open (Thurs. – Sun., Aug 13-16) is known

as the Wimbledon of beach volleyball. Winners are honored with a bronze

plaque on the Manhattan Pier Volleyball Walk of Fame, the sport’s second highest

honor. This year’s finals, on Sunday, will be broadcast live on NBC from 4:30

to 6:30 p.m.

The sport’s highest honor, an Olympic medal, has been brought home by local

volleyball players from every Olympics Game since beach volleyball was introduced

as an Olympic sport in Atlanta in 1996. (Manhattan Beach resident Mike

Dodd won a silver medal at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Hermosa Beach resident

Eric Fonoimoana won gold at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney. Manhattan

Beach resident Holly McPeak won bronze at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. And

Hermosa Beach resident Kerri Walsh won gold at the 2004 Olympics, the 2008

Olympics in Beijing and the 2012 Olympics in London.)

In the spring and summer Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach are to beach

volleyball what Arizona is to baseball. China, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands,

Great Britain and other nations send their teams here to train.

Fortunately, for recreational players, open courts are available every day somewhere

on the beaches in Hermosa, Manhattan and Redondo. Jumping and diving

in the soft sand make beach volleyball one of the most physically enjoyable

sports on the planet. It’s also one of the few sports that can be enjoyed at every

level of ability, and enjoyed playing against players of differing abilities. In the

many, colorful summer tournaments, teams are commonly assigned A, B, C,

and D players. The nets are always up and balls may be rented from Jeffers

Beach Rentals (39-14th St., Hermosa Beach). The three beach city recreation

departments offer lessons through the summer, as do many local pro players.

Downtown Manhattan Beach dining

Area of Manhattan Ave., Highland Ave.

& Manhattan Beach Boulevard

w In the 1970s, Manhattan Beach blocked McDonalds, and by extension other

chains from opening in its downtown. As a result, downtown Manhattan developed

a tradition of innovative restaurants. Nonetheless, it remained a backwater

on the greater LA culinary map, until recently. Now, it’s home to more

celebrity chefs than the Cooking Channel. Among them MB Post’s Chef David

LeFevre and Little Sister’s fast rising Chef Tin Vuong. Time will tell if celebrity

chefs will have the staying power of the downtown’s many widely admired

longtime chefs such as and Darren’s chef Darren Weiss and old favorites such

as Uncle Bill’ Pancakes, Sloopy’s and the Kettle.

Downtown Manhattan shopping

w Skechers, whose corporate headquarters are in Manhattan Beach, has its flagship

store in downtown Manhattan, with over 250 models of shoes to ponder.

Other national fashion leaders in the downtown include the new Trina Turk

showroom, Michael Stars, True Religion, Lucky Brand and Manhattan Beachfounded

Diane’s Beachwear. But what makes the downtown unique are the

many longtime, independent stores. Generations have grown up wearing beach

fashions from Rose Jacobson’s Cotton Cargo, which opened in 1975.

with a cladding of red shingles. The roof has lower eaves on the south side to

minimize sand from piling up on the windward side. It was built in 1905 for

$600 on a lot that cost $140. The museum features an extensive collection of

Metlox Pottery (makers of the Poppytrail line), which was produced at the

Metlox factory in downtown Manhattan Beach until the 1970s. Open Saturdays

Redondo Beach Marina, King Harbor

w The California gray whales’ annual migration brings them close to the South

Bay shoreline. Voyager, leaving from King Harbor, offers daily whale watching

cruises December through April. Voyager also offers nature and sunset cruises.

Dolphins surfing Voyager’s bow wake are as inspiring a show as the whales.

Recent years have also brought Blue whales, the world’s largest mammal, and

spyhopping Humpback whales to the South Bay. Pelicans, cormorants, night

herons and of course sea gulls offer plenty of entertainment on the way out to

the whales. Voyager departs 7 days a week. (310) 944-1219.

Sport fishing

Redondo Beach Marina

w White sea bass, sand bass, calico bass, and halibut are plentiful in the Santa

Monica Bay. All it takes is a good skipper to show you where they are. Redondo

Sport Fishing’s skippers have been masters of the bay for generations and don’t

mind sharing their knowledge. Half-day and all-day boats leave daily from the

Redondo Sport Fishing pier (RedondoSport Fishing.com), next to Polly’s coffee

shop. For gear and local advice, visit Just Fishing by Pete (2427 190th St.

Redondo Beach, (310) 376-7035).

King Harbor boating, biking

www.visitredondo.com

w If you’re a boater, you can be out of King Harbor and on the open ocean within

five minutes of leaving the slip. The prevailing westerly winds are a consistent

6 to 15 knots, year round, which makes for fun, but not too challenging sailing.

Marina Sailing ((310) 318-2772) and South Bay Sailing ((310-937-3180) offer

lessons and charters. Tarsans Stand-up Paddleboards offers both board rentals

and lessons. If you prefer to enjoy the boats from shore, dozens of restaurants

enjoy the view is to rent a bike or skates at at Marina Bike Rentals, across the

street from the newly remodeled Redondo Beach Hotel

(MarinaBikeRentals.com). Sport fishing and whale watching boats leave daily

Skin diving/Scuba diving

w The edge of the Redondo Canyon, just south of the Redondo pier and just a

200 yards off the beach ranges in depth from 15 to 40 feet, with the canyon wall

dropping down 1,200 feet. The area is famous for day and night dives and a

wide range of marine life.

Cable car reef north of the Hermosa Pier, and a few hundred yards off shore is

in 60 feet of water and gets its name from the streetcar dumped there in 1960,

along with 14 car bodies, and 330 tons of quarry rock.

Also within a mile of the Redondo coastline are a number of wrecks popular

with divers.

The Sacramento, the “world’s largest fishing barge” accommodated up to 500

fishermen and women until she sunk during a storm in 1968. Today, the wreck

of the Sacramento remains relatively intact. Divers can explore her ornate wood

carvings, beautiful stained glass, brass relics, and the hyperbaric chamber.

Chewing gum magnate William Wrigley’s Avalon ferried 3,000 visitors a day

from Los Angeles Harbor to Catalina Island aboard the luxurious Avalon during

the 1920s. The Avalon sunk in a storm in 1964, long after its storied career had

come to an end.

The 441-foot USS Palawan Liberty Ship was sunk in 1977 in 110 feet of water

to serve as an artificial fishing reef. The reef is known locally as the spot where

Dive N’ Surf owner and wetsuit inventor Bob Meistrell celebrated his 82nd

birthday in 2010 by diving to 100 feet, joined by three generations of his

diving family.

Thanks to a 1996 kelp restoration project by the environmental group

Santa Monica Bay Keeper, some of the most beautiful diving in the world

can be found within swimming distance of the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

Swimming through the twinkling, golden light filtering through the giant

fronds has been compared to a walk through the redwood forest.

Dive gear rentals, air, charter, lessons and expert advice are available at

Dive N’ Surf, 504 N. Broadway, Redondo Beach, (310) 372-8423.

Redondo Beach Historical Museum

302 Flagler Lane. (310) 318-0684.

w Redondo’s Historical Museum home is a lovingly restored 1904 Queen

Anne house, next door to a 1906 Queen Anne house, and surrounded by a

rose garden. The city’s colorful history, including its former commercial

harbor and new recreational harbor, California surfing pioneer George

Freeth and 1940s brothel owner Madam Fifi are documented in photos,

newspapers and other memorabilia. Wednesdays 10 a.m. to 1 p.m and on

weekends from noon to 4 p.m. Privately scheduled group tours are available

by request.

Redondo Pier and International Boardwalk

Torrance Blvd., west of Catalina Ave. Redondopier.com

w The next best thing to being on the ocean is looking out on it. And

there’s no better place than the Redondo Beach pier. Summer concerts on

the Pier are presented Thursdays and Saturday evenings, through Labor

Day. As the sun sets, slip into Tony’s Fish Restaurant for a mai tai or a fire

chief and a view of the sail and fishing boats pass in and out of the harbor.

Fish is also the speciality at Kincaid’s and the R10 Social House. More fish

is available just north of the pier at Blue Water Grill and Captain Kidd’s,

where you can pick out a filet of locally caught halibut and have them prepare

it for dining in or taking out.

Quality Seafood on the International Boardwalk also sells and prepares

fresh fish. The Boardwalk, where the commercial fishing boats tie up is

new craft’s beer hotspot. Naja’s has been offering over 100 draft beers for

decades, but this past summer has seen the opening of the King Harbor

Brewery tasting room and intimate, gourmet restaurants Pia

(Japaneste/Italian), A Basque Kitchen and The Slip Bar and Eatery (craft

beer, wine, comfort food).

Redondo Fun Factory

International Boardwalk, Redondo Beach pier

w This is a window into the past, where a few quarters will have kids and

adults alike screaming with excitement. Over 300 games, ranging from traditional

pinball to the latest, total immersion race car and action sports

games. Remember the Tilt-A-Whirl and Skee Ball? They’re still here, as well

as challenging prize games like Wedges and Ledges. Don’t leave without

winning a life-size, stuffed teddy bear.

Riviera Village dining

Catalina Ave. area between Avenue I and Palos Verdes Blvd.

w A good argument can be made that California fusion, that hard to define

mix of Asian and European cuisines with the California influence on fresh

seasonal produce and artisan cheeses, accompanied by boutique wines,

began in Riviera Village in 1982 in what was once a hotel coffee shop. A

few years ago, Michael Franks and chef Robert Bell moved their Chez

Melange restaurant to a more upscale location, but it remains a foodie’s pilgrimage

stop. Chez Melange set a high bar and its neighbors responded

enthusiastically. Guy Gabriel of Café Pierre fame in Manhattan Beach

opened Zazou. Hermosa’s Bottle Inn celebrated it’s 40th anniversary this

year by opening a Riviera Village location. Even Paul Hennessey, who

made his fortune serving pub food and beer at his Hennessey’s taverns up

and down the coast, accepted the challenge. He installed a top chef in a

failed upscale restaurant with a big patio, renamed it H.T. Grill and

reclaimed his former tavern customers, who had moved into their more

responsible and discerning years. Danny and Mary Louise Williams also

found emphasizing fresh produce with a traditional cuisine elevated their

Riviera Mexican Grill to a level not commonly associated with Mexican

food. It didn’t hurt that they regularly won Best Margarita in the Easy

Reader newspaper Best Of the Beach balloting. Most Riviera Village restaurants

offer outdoor dining, which elevates the enjoyment of any meal.

Redondo Riviera Village shopping

RivieraVillage.org

w Riviera Village is what shopping was like before malls. but with a contemporary

edge. Sidewalk dining, men’s and women’s specialty shops, unique gift boutiques, a

farmers market Friday afternoons and a scattering of medical and professional offices

combine for a small town feeling with a sophisticated style. The 300 stores and restaurants

are almost all independently owned, which accounts for both their unique offerings

and personal service. The streets close the last weekend in June for the Riviera

Village Summer Art Festival and again on the Fourth of July for the Village Runner

Firecracker 5K. If it’s December, don’t miss the Holiday Stroll with carolers and a

chance for kids to visit Santa.

over the 140 fine retailers, ranging from Macy’s to Ann Taylor and Guess. A dozen
