Fall is the perfect time to slow down and enjoy the finer things in life – taking walks, watching movies and eating delicious food. Embrace this refreshing change of pace in Torrance! Below are five fall activities you can enjoy while keeping a safe distance in SoCal’s gem.
Just because Halloween may look different this year, doesn’t mean you have to give up the fun tradition of watching scary movies. This October, enjoy classic Halloween films such as Ghostbusters, A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Nightmare Before Christmas on the big screen at the Roadium Drive-In theater.
Speaking of movies, fall is also a favorite time for TV buffs, with the hottest series returning to screens. To date, Torrance has provided the just-right backdrop for more than 200 films and television series. If you’re a fan, you’ll recognize many iconic locations like Torrance High School (featured on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Beverly Hills, 90210) or Del Amo Fashion Center (featured on Bad Santa and Valley Girl). Follow this interactive map to check them all out in person.
Our blood type may be pumpkin spice this time of year, but how about a little pumpkin beer to celebrate the harvest season too? The famous Pumpkinhead Ale brewed by Red Car Brewery & Restaurant is officially back on tap and a must-try!
Enjoy the beautiful colors of the fall foliage at the Madrona Marsh Preserve and Nature Center. This preserve is one of the only vernal wetlands in Southern California and serves as home to more than 325 bird species migrating through the area. A true urban oasis like no other!
Even though Torrance has some of the best weather with temperatures rarely dropping below 71 degrees, you can still fully feel the fall spirit by indulging in a bowl of warm soup. Known as the ramen empire of SoCal, Torrance is home to some of the most authentic spots such as Hakata Ikkousha Ramen. Don’t forget to grab a fall-flavored pastry at Torrance Bakery for dessert!
After an adventurous day, snuggle under a warm blanket in a comfortable hotel bed – the true definition of cozy! From trendy boutiques to family-friendly lodging with kitchenettes and more, Torrance offers lodging options to fit any need and budget.
