Holidays in the South Bay

The holidays have washed up on our local beach shores and filled us with cheer. This year there are tons of things to do and experience to get you and your family in the holiday spirit. Here are our list of top 4 things to do in the South Bay for the Holidays. 


Holidays in Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach

There is nothing like the annual Manhattan Beach Holiday Fireworks show. The entire town comes together, rain or shine, and patiently waits for the magical display of lights to launch them into the holiday spirit. Make sure you bring a blanket because it can get chilly. Don't forget that this can be an all day event if you want it to be with activities and concerts happening starting at 2 on Manhattan Beach Blvd. More info 




If you live in Hermosa Beach, chances are that Santa may be swinging by your street. On Dec. 14th make sure you check his routing here and are outside between 6 & 8:30 to catch a glimpse of Santa Clause in real life. 


3. Pick your favorite boat in the King Harbor Boat Parade

Boats will cruise through the harbor all adorned in their best lights to be seen for everyone and to be judged in several different categories.  If you plan to observe from shore, you can do so from any number of vantage points in King Harbor, from the Redondo Beach Marina, Redondo Pier, Portofino Hotel and Marina/Sea Wall, Seaside Lagoon Sea Wall and several restaurants with harbor views. King Harbor Marina/Moonstone Park will provide FREE bleacher seating provided by Bay Club. Seating is first come, first serve. More information here.


4. Take a Stroll Through Candy Cane Lane in Torrance

For the last 40 years or so, the Sleepy Hollow area of Torrance has attracted guests from far and wide every December when it magically transforms into Candy Cane Lane.  The neighborhoods go all out with intricate lights and holiday decorations. Come enjoy the holiday lights until January 1st from 6 to 10 pm every night. Traffic always tends to be a bit slow so you might as well park outside the neighborhood and enjoy an nice stroll through the neighborhoods where you can purchase hot cocoa or candy from the local residents. The entrance is on PCH and Calle Mayor in Torrance, CA 90505
