Happy almost spring! A new season is upon us and what better way to kick off the warmer weather than by discovering SoCal’s favorite hotspot. From the uncrowded beaches to delicious eats and killer craft brews, Torrance is one of Southern California’s best spring destinations. Here’s why:
Pack your swimsuit and sunscreen because Torrance Beach is one of the city’s most remarkable gems where visitors get to enjoy the Southern California sunshine without the crowds. The 1.5-mile beach is also home to the start of a stellar bike path. The Strand Beach Bicycle Trail is a 22-mile bike path that hugs the California coastline. If you’ve never heard of it, you’re in for a real treat! The trail takes you all the way up to Malibu and provides beautiful coastal views of the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
With spring right around the corner, SoCal will soon be buzzing with springtime sports! Torrance is the perfect place to make your home base while your favorite teams are just a short drive away. Get a kick out of watching the LA Galaxy at Dignity Health Sports Park or catch the Los Angeles Dodgers at the nearby Dodger Stadium. Get ready for an action-packed spring vacation!
Fresh fruit is always a good idea, especially in Torrance. Head to the Torrance Certified Farmers’ Market (the largest farmers’ market in the South Bay) every Tuesday and Saturday 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Charles H. Wilson Park. The Farmers’ Market not only features fresh produce, but also specialty vendors. Whether you have foodies or picky eaters in your family, there are plenty of options to keep everyone happy and full. #winning
Escape into nature and discover the picturesque Madrona Marsh Preserve and Nature Center – a secret urban oasis right in the heart of Torrance! The preserve is also one of the only vernal wetlands in Southern California and is a truly unique experience. Bring your binoculars to spot more than 325 bird species and a camera for an artsy photo shoot of wildflowers, butterflies and our feathered friends flying around. Did we mention the entrance to the preserve is free?
Known as Southern California’s beer hub and foodies paradise, Torrance’s restaurant scene is home to 400-plus eateries, which include a diverse selection of casual and high-end dining including seafood, authentic Italian, Mexican, ramen noodles and much more. With 12 breweries around town, some even within walking distance of each other, Torrance has grown a reputation for being a hotspot for SoCal craft beer enthusiasts. Be sure to check out The Brews Hall, Torrance’s first multi-concept brewery and food hall. With two breweries and four food concepts, not to mention a full bar, there is a little bit of something for everyone!
