Sightseeing Along The Strand In Hermosa, Manhattan & Redondo Beach
In a city of unique adventures and attractions, there is one activity that truly defines this place and its creative culture.
It is riding a bicycle along the beach in La La Land – think the opening from the “Three’s Company” TV show – among surfers, volleyball players and runners and, well, those going to the bars.
A Los Angeles tour company can help you experience this true Southern California lifestyle activity in the same style as the locals do it: on a bicycle.
Beach Cities Bike Tours provides guided sightseeing tours along The Strand in the South Bay cities of Hermosa, Manhattan and Redondo Beach.
Imagine taking a tour in Los Angeles and not having to sit on a bus and being struck in traffic. No crowded Hollywood Blvd. No clogged Sunset Strip. No 405 freeway!
Instead, you’re riding a bicycle with the fresh open breeze giving your hair a wind-blown look as if in the movies while your guide points out places where various flicks were made: “2012,” “Blow,” “Tequila Sunrise” and “My Stepmother’s An Alien.”
Stop at the famous 90210 house as locals calls it, the beach house used in the TV show. See the harbor where the TV show “The A Team” was filmed.
See the sand where the sport of beach volleyball was born and where surfers from pros to squids go to hit the waves. Rmember the line “all over Manhattan” from the Beach Boys song; well that refers to Manhattan Beach and in fact see the neighborhood where singer Mike Love lived at the time.
Learn about the area’s restaurants – including where to find the best burger in L.A. – and the South Bay’s legendary nightlife. Plus the best Happy Hours and places where you can sip a glass of wine, down a beer or have a legendary drink in a legendary bar, all during sunset over the Pacific Ocean.
Heck, there’s even a Thursday wine tasting tour.
