Welcome to sunny California—and to that celebrity-filled hub of the movie industry, Los Angeles! Just 30 minutes outside Los Angeles is Manhattan Beach, a small coastal city that offers an urban oasis from the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles. Manhattan Beach is for anyone who enjoys fabulous weather, trendy shops and restaurants, eclectic culture, and a laid-back atmosphere. While you're in the area, visit Hollywood—or you can glimpse real stars at the Griffith Observatory, or revisit your inner child at Disneyland®. Stay at one of the many hotels on Manhattan Beach to hear the surf and smell the sea.

Featuring two miles of glistening sand, the beach is the star attraction, where you can surf or relax and work on your tan.
