Great facts you need to know about Manhattan Beach
I love figure out some useful and curios facts before I go to a place I’ve never been before. What is typical at this place, how many people live here, and what makes this city special?
In fact, Manhattan Beach has a lot to offer. For example, the beach is so heavenly white and fine, that it was shipped across the ocean to famous Waikiki Beach, Hawaii in the twenties. And a coin flip decided the town’s name.
Furthermore, Manhattan Beach was and still is the hometown or the seasonal home of famous actor like Johnny Depp, Kevin James or Benjamin McKenzie, known as The O.C. California.
Where to go first?
If you are ever in the Los Angeles county area somewhere between Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach, you have to stopp in Manhattan Beach and stroll around the Morningside Drive and cross the Manhattan Beach Boulevard to the Pier! There are a lot of car parks at the Morningside Drive.
