Congratulations on your move to sunny Southern California and using Torrance movers A&A Moving Company! You’re moving to the town that produced such famous names as Chuck Norris, Quentin Tarantino, Snoop Dogg, and five-time Olympic figure-skating champion Michelle Kwan. You’ll be 20 miles from downtown Los Angeles on Santa Monica Bay, complete with beach, marsh, and nature preserve.
You aren’t moving here for Chuck Norris, though. Snoop Dogg, maybe. Seriously, we know how stressful moving can be. You’re worried about new jobs, new neighbors, new schools, traffic, weather, and a dozen more things. We could bust out a lyric like “everything’s going to be okay,” but what you need after the exhaustion and stress of moving is some fun and relaxation. Try these local attractions and unwind a little.
Just because Torrance is close to L.A. And not far from Santa Monica doesn’t mean it’s a big city, too. The moving company Torrance is leading you to a small town with that “everyone knows everyone else” home-town aura. There are great things to see and do in Torrance, so grab your sneakers and pack a picnic, because you’re going to the beach!
Miramar Park isn’t landscaped within an inch of its life or packed with play equipment and pavilions like other parks. Dogs can run in their own area of the one-acre park and drink from their own fountain, while their families sit on benches and drink in the sea and the clean fresh air. That’s what Miramar means, “sea view.” Statuary and plaques are available for visitors’ pleasure.
Annual Festival Of The Kite
Every time we hear the word kite, it reminds us of the scene in Mary Poppins in which everyone in the park is flying a colorful, interestingly shaped kite and singing. Every March on the Redondo Pier, the Annual Festival Of The Kite reminds us of the magic of childhood, when the breeze can carry us to worlds unknown on the wings of a kite.
Del Amo Fashion Center
You’ll need special clothes and shoes to see the next attractions in Torrance. Torrance movers will direct you to the Del Amo Fashion Center, where the brands rule and the food is amazing. Stay fit and healthy walking the mall. Download the personal shopper app.
Check out a movie while you decide between the shirt at Aeropostale or the jeans at Forever 21. Have a bite at one of a dozen great eateries like Dave and Busters, Buffalo Wild Wings, or Johnny Rocket’s. Then snap up a deal on shoes, and you’ll be ready to see the next attraction in Torrance.
Madrona Marsh Preserve
Once Southern California was mostly marsh land. Today, Madrona Marsh Preserve is one of the last natural habitats of birds, insects, and small animals. The spring and fall rains fill up the marsh, which sustains it and provides sustenance for its inhabitants.
The nature center is across the street containing interactive programs, workshops, and labs for a better understanding of our natural resources.
Los Arboles Rocketship Park
We all have that one person in the family who can’t go high enough on swings and roller coasters. The six acre Los Arboles Rocketship Park sits atop a rise from which the view of the L. A. basin and Santa Monica Bay is exquisite. The little ones (and big ones, too) can have fun climbing the four-level rocketship to enjoy the view. Los Arboles means “the trees.”
For those who seek some adult fun, this brewery in Torrance offers a great selection of craft beers with a twist. Monkish has a tasting room and an eclectic list of craft beers with great names like Sticky Green and Bad Traffic, Water Balloon Fighters, Feminist, and La Schmoove. You can always grab a bottle of your favorite ale if you’re on the go.
Monkish doesn’t serve food, although they don’t mind if you bring your own. The twist is the food trucks the brewery has asked to take up station in the parking lot. Craving tacos, pizza, fried chicken, or Korean food? Pair your favorite food with your favorite brew, and you’ve got a recipe for fun!
