Glass Church / Wayfarers Chapel

Overlooking the Pacific coast, this beautiful church was designed by the son of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Reviewed By Tami C - Phoenix, Arizona

I had tried bringing my kids here several times but there always seemed to be a wedding going on. Finally, last summer we managed to stop when no one was there. This Frank Lloyd Wright chapel is absolutely amazing. It’s towering glass walls and ceiling is surrounded by pines so close to the sea can’t be beat for peace and tranquility.

We didn’t make a long stop because when you have teenagers this is maybe a 20 minute jaunt to look at the chapel and walk through the grounds. But they did seem to really enjoy it as it’s an architectural experience that you won’t find anywhere else. We ended up seeing it featured in some TV show and it was also exciting for the kids to point at the television and yell, “hey we’ve been there!“

Redondo Beach

Reviewed By KayMacTravel7 - Los Angeles, California

This is still my favorite beach in Southern California after all these years! It’s clean and family friendly, with gorgeous views of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and beautiful sunsets. Great for surfing, sitting in the sand, playing some sports, bringing kids, splashing in the waves, etc. You can also enjoy a nice walk or bike ride along the strand (concrete path). There is metered parking along Esplanade, or you can find parking along a street nearby like one of the avenues. There are many fun restaurants and shops either in the Riviera Village around Avenue I or up north at the Redondo Beach pier. You won’t regret visiting this fabulous beach!

South Coast Botanic Garden

Reviewed By HanneleH - Helsinki, Finland

A tranquil garden offers a lovely walk around the garden. It was January so there was not all the possible blossom. However we enjoyed our walk there. We would have enjoyed a cup of coffee or soda should there have been a café. The ladies in the shop were most friendly.

Lomita Railroad Museum

Reviewed By Adam M

I was suprised at how much my kids enjoyed the novelty of sitting in a stationary train car and reading books. The size is just right for a place to stop when you have a few minutes to spare with the kids.

Hermosa Beach Pier

Reviewed By SusanCBM - Batesville, Arkansas

The Pier at Hermosa Beach is well worth the walk! A great place to stroll, people watch, surf watch and enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Ocean. Just off the strand and lots of restaurants and shops. Hermosa Beach and the Pier were wonderful!

Del Amo Fashion Center

Reviewed By SLOnative - Pismo Beach, Calif.

Twice bought shirts at Nordstrom, but couldn’t find a jacket. My friend found bargains for a 10 month old granddaughter at Macy’s. Dined at night twice in Brio (I think) Italian restaurant and had lunch in Nordstrom’s 2nd level cafe with a heated patio. There is also a separate Barnes & Noble bookstore between the Street and parking lot that is open late.

The Point Vicente Interpretive Center

Reviewed By Helen F - Austin, Texas

The Interpretive Center is interesting and manageable. Think the opposite of the British Museum. Just a few thoughtful rooms with geological and ranch models, dioramas, amazing photos and short videos. The staff is welcoming but not overly intrusive. I learned a great deal about the various settlers of the peninsula as well as whales.

Carnival Foot Spa

Reviewed By jinnean - Los Angeles, California

Well for $20.00 the foot message felt good,didn't appreciate the whisper conversation amongst the massage therapist,as I went to completely relax.
Again,the message felt great,but when I left $4.00 for the tip,I was told that wasn't enough and that I had to give her a minimum of $5.00.Kinda uncomfortable as even their receipt provided tip amounts ranching from 10% to 20% in which it even gave the amount of $4.00 for a 20% tip.When it comes to a tip,I will always give a minimum of 20% but will not be told how much I need to give.It just so happen to be all I had in my wallet,so I had to charge on my card and they do charge you a fee for that.Wont be going back,as their is a good one closer to my house that I will try next time-
