The three Beach Cities are found on the south end of the Santa Monica Bay about 20 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles. They are north of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and west of the 405 Freeway.
All three Beach Cities are known for their lifestyle, piers, downtown areas, great schools, weather and of course beaches. They are popular with swimmers, surfers, bodyboarders, volleyball players, skateboarders, beachgoers of all sorts and great for people watching! The Strand runs along the beaches and is used for cycling, running and rollerblading and also features some of the most beachfront expensive homes in the area.
Many professional athletes (Kings, Lakers, Clippers) make this area their home as do a number of entertainers, entrepreneurs, and many small business owners.
The South Bay is one of the most culturally, economically, and ethnically diverse areas in the United States and is made up of fifteen cities plus portions of the City of Los Angeles and unincorporated portions of the Los Angeles County. Many home buyers gravitate to the area because of the great schools, proximity to jobs, affordability and lifestyle. You can find everything from entry level condos to multi million dollar estates and lots in between. There are many affordable options. Well affordable by southern CA standards anyway.
Geographically the greater South Bay is found south of LAX, inland to the 110 Freeway and south to the end of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and the border of Long Beach.
In addition to the Beach Cities, the Greater South Bay includes includes:
The South Bay also includes San Pedro, Harbor City and Wilmington some of which are found east of the 110 Freeway.
Silicon Beach is the Westside region of the Los Angeles that is home to over 500 tech companies, with emphasis on the coastal strip north of LAX to Santa Monica Mountains. These days many Realtors have used the the term "Silicon Beach" rather loosely to refer to many adjacent neighborhoods as well.
Many household name technology companies have opened offices in the region including Google, Yahoo!, YouTube, BuzzFeed, Facebook, Salesforce, AOL, and Electronic Arts. Depending on who you talk to the region is considered the second or third largest tech hub in the world. While you will often find the headquarters of the established tech titans elsewhere, Silicon Beach is the land of the startups. Silicon Beach tends to have a more diversified economy than its primarily tech centered northern neighbor, Silicon Valley.
Cities have their own page showing new listings, neighborhood overview and local information and are hyperlinked in blue in this page.
There are numerous Quick Search links to results for common queries. When the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) further delineates sub-neighborhoods you will also find these searches pre-set for you. These may appear in the body of the text or the sidebar (which appears at the bottom on mobile phones).
For those interested in Selling a home there are numerous links to the Home Valuation Form which provides an instant price estimate. In addition there are many Market Reports available throughout which should benefit both Buyers and Sellers. You will also find other useful information in the pages accessed via the navigation bar.
