The only reason to come here, is to go for breakfast at "the Kettle", shops small and well over priced for LA, Beach flooded with volleyballers, Houses piled on top of each other, overcrowded feel, but hey, breakky at kettle was worth it

Tuesdays are a favorite when Farmers Market moves in town. However, be prepared for parking spaces to be a shortage. Plenty of specialty shops and a plentiful selection of restaurants

One can easily spend an entire day exploring MB. You will find a wide variety of shops along its steep hills. There are a couple of parking garages if you can't find a spot on the street.

Really love this beach. It is clean, not too busy, has beautiful architecture and has a great calm vibe. Lots of little boutique stores to browse through and great eateries. I especially loved the Ice Cream shop :-)

Downtown Manhattan Beach is a great coastal community! There's something for everyone -- shopping (clothing, souvenirs, art, eyeglasses, etc.), hair salons, ice cream parlors, etc. The Manhattan Beach Pier and the "Round House" aquarium as well as the crashing waves on the beach are awesome....More

Manhattan Beach is a great place for sun, sand, shopping, exercise, and dog walking. I enjoyed the many upscale boutiques. I purchased a great deal at Chex Foti Shoe Store (318 Manhattan Beach Boulevard)! I love their Italian leather shoes that are so comfortable.

Lovely shops and restaurants, seems more upscale than Hermosa or Rodondo. It is a little difficult to park and if anyone happens to have difficulties walking, the walk from the beach up is very steep. This is a great downtown area!
