Why South Bay is the Best Place for Summer Vacations

When you’re taking a trip to California, you get to choose between visiting mountains, beaches, deserts, and everything in between. Still, if you ask the Beach Bound team then one of the best places to visit in all of California is the South Bay area.

We may be biased since we are lucky enough to live here, but that’s also why we know the area inside and out and can share why the South Bay is the place you should visit this summer on your vacation. Read all about it below, then plan your trip to the South Bay so you can see exactly what we’re talking about!

Miles of Pacific Coastline with California Sunshine

Southern California’s famous year-round summer weather is hard to beat, but when you add in miles of beautiful beaches and the famous Highway 1 to visit each of them you see why South Bay is one of the best places to go to the beach in the entire country.

No matter if you like secluded beaches that are far from anything else or large ones that have stores, food, and other developed areas around them, you can find it in the South Bay.

More than Just Beaches

Beaches aren’t the only thing you’ll have access to in the South Bay though. Whether you’re looking for a night out with world-class food and entertainment options or want to visit a desert or mountain landscape, it’s all within reach from the South Bay.

With Los Angeles just a short drive away from most South Bay towns, you’ll have every option in the world for big city entertainment and dining. Looking for a more secluded adventure? Try a trip into the desert east of South Bay where you’ll find Joshua Tree National Park and Death Valley National Park all within a day’s drive. If that’s not enough, there are also mountains just outside of Los Angeles where you’ll find incredible hiking, camping, and even skiing and snowboarding in winter.

Lastly, California’s famous Highway 1 is the ultimate place to take a road trip on since you’ll enjoy incredible views no matter where you go on it.

Classic Beach Towns Waiting for You

Whether the South Bay is where you’ll be spending your entire vacation or will be using it as a basecamp for other adventures, you must spend time in the beach towns that dot the coastline.

For example, Hermosa Beach is a classic beach town where the locals are obsessed with enjoying the sand and sunshine. You’ll know the second you visit thanks to beautiful murals that cover the town as well as the dozens of public volleyball courts that line the beach. Plus, Hermosa Beach is built to help people enjoy the weather and ocean thanks to the Strand. The Strand is a paved walking and biking path that runs between the coast at Hermosa Beach and the city itself, making it the perfect place to get some fresh air and exercise. That’s why the Strand is full of people walking, biking, skating, and everything in between and there are shops like Beach Bound that offer fast and friendly beach and bike rentals.

Once you’ve had enough time on the beach or walking on the Strand, Hermosa Beach also offers incredible nightlife and entertainment options. Whether a night out for you means dinner, drinks, or a dancing the night away, Hermosa Beach has a place for you.
