Hit that pause button and take a much-needed break in Torrance. Step onto our uncrowded beach or explore an island of wilderness right in the heart of the city. Torrance is rich with authentic outdoor experiences that offer all the fresh air you’ve been craving.
Settle into the Surf & Sand
Breathe in that cool, salty breeze at Torrance Beach – a 1.5 mile stretch of pristine coastline with amazing views of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Play in the sand, start an impromptu volleyball game or take a bike ride – after all, it is the starting point for The Strand, SoCal’s coastal bike path that leads all the way to Will Rogers State Beach in Malibu.
Discover Garden Bliss
Surround yourself in green at the peaceful and fragrant South Coast Botanic Garden. This 87-acre site features 13 specialty gardens, including a banyan grove, desert, water-wise, Mediterranean and children’s gardens, a garden for the senses (deep breaths recommended) and areas devoted to fuchsias, dahlias and roses. The Japanese garden and koi pond are well worth the trip alone and you can catch a glimpse of more than 300 bird species that come for the year-round variety of fruits and flowers.
Roam the Madrona Marsh
Reconnect with nature at one of the last remaining, undisturbed vernal wetlands in Southern California. Madrona Marsh Preserve & Nature Center is an island of wilderness in the heart of the city. Some residents aren’t even aware this lush and beautiful 43-acre wonder exists. Now you do. It’s super close, tucked right near the Del Amo Fashion Center — which is a great place to gift yourself with a few retail rewards.
Soak Up the Sunset
Catch a spectacular sunset and out-of-this-world views of the LA Basin from Los Arboles “Rocketship” Park. On a clear day, you can see as far as the south end of the Santa Monica Bay to the Getty Center, the Hollywood Sign and Griffith Park Observatory. If you have kids, they’ll love the chance to play and climb the four-level rocketship.
Get Away and Relax
Go for that full getaway feel at one of our relaxing Torrance hotels. From boutique and hip places like the Bluestem Hotel to suites with fully-equipped kitchens like the Extended Stay America Los Angeles – Torrance Blvd., it’s the best way to really catch your breath.
