Sports are on this fall! Torrance is just a short drive from all the major league Los Angeles sports teams including football, basketball, baseball, hockey and soccer. Come for the game and then relax in Torrance with a stay at one of our 15 hotels. It’s the perfect game plan. Here’s our tips on how to get the most out of your gameday getaway.
Both the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers play at the new SoFi Stadium in nearby Inglewood, the first indoor/outdoor stadium ever built and it’s just 23 minutes from Torrance. The first pre-season game is on Saturday, August 21st with Rams vs Raiders. You can check out the schedule for the rest of the games on our event calendar. If you’re attending Thursday and Sunday games, add a couple days to your trip and enjoy a mini-getaway.
Basketball and hockey kick off right after football. You can watch the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers play at the Staples Center in downtown L.A., just 30 minutes from Torrance. The 2022 NBA Season runs from October 19, 2021 until June.

Celebrate with Craft Beer
We’ve got 12 breweries and counting, so there are a lot of great places to watch the game or hang out at after a live game. The Brews Hall might be your best bet with its two breweries, full bar and four food concepts to chow down on. Absolution Brewing is another excellent choice with their farm-to-glass artisan beers and ales made Old World style with New World ingredients.
Beyond the game, Torrance Beach is always a good idea. Plant your chair, dig in your toes and soak up that SoCal beach vibe. Madrona Marsh is another beautiful place to immerse yourself in nature. Head there for some forest bathing, (oh yeah, it’s a thing), to wind down after the excitement of game watching. Del Amo Fashion Center, Torrance’s huge indoor mall and one of the largest malls in America, is a fun place to explore too.
Not sure where to start? The California Welcome Center Torrance in the Del Amo Fashion Center hosts a friendly staff and informational kiosks to help you plan your trip.
