Why We Love Torrance

Torrance, CA is one of our favorite cities in the South Bay. Only 20 miles southwest of downtown LA and nestled conveniently between Redondo and Malaga Cove, Torrance offers a wide variety of activities for tourists and locals alike.

Torrance is known for its appreciation for transportation; it is home to the Toyota USA Automobile Museum, where visitors can see Toyota models throughout the company’s span of 55 years. For those more interested in air travel, the city offers the Western Museum of Flight as well as the Annual Festival of Flight at Long Beach Airport.

Torrance also has a strong commitment to nature preservation. The wilderness of Madrona Marsh Preserve provides viewers with access to native birds, insects, mammals, and reptiles. From hiking, birdwatching, or viewing microscopic animal or plant life at the Nature Center, Madrona Marsh Preserve is a haven for nature lovers of all sorts. In addition to the Preserve, Torrance has a public park, Miramar Park, located just above Torrance Beach and offering 1.6 acres and endless ocean views.

Torrance is an incredible place to be. Ensure your affairs are in order so you can go back to the SoCal lifestyle you love.
