Manhattan Beach is a classic surf city on the Southern California coast, which is known for having some of the most consistent waves on the West Coast. The city is essentially a long stretch of beach that extends all across the city, creating a nonstop area of surf for surfers, body boarders and skim boarders. These beaches are without question the biggest attractions when it comes to visiting the city of Manhattan Beach, although there is also a lot going on when it comes to entertainment.
Just about everyone knows that the greater Los Angeles area is home to some of the biggest music and television production in the world and a great deal of this type of production happens in the city. Many movies are filmed on the beaches and a massive numbers of bands come out of this area, based on the fact that there is such a vibrant music scene. Perhaps the biggest reason for this is the fact that not only is there a thriving music scene and a great deal of talent, but there are a huge amount of record labels and agencies that are in Manhattan Beach and the surrounding areas.
If you are looking for a city that is located on the Southern California coast that possesses both the beauty and relaxed beach vibe that the golden state is known for, mixed with the big business and industry that the area is also world renowned for, this city is a great place to check out. The population in the city is fairly modest at about thirty five thousand people and the housing market is a bit more affordable than some of the other cities in the area, so if you are looking to move to this area, you should be able to find adequate housing.
One of the most interesting things about this city is the fact that it used to be sand dunes. In the twenties and thirties, the city was leveled out in order to make a flat surface and some of the sand was actually sold to Waikiki, which used the sand for their resorts.
