Homes in Hermosa Beach are architecturally varied with everything from beach bungalows to expansive multilevel homes in the hills. The city is well-known for the entertainment scene with regular live music, festivals and special events, with the three-day weekends of Memorial Day and Labor Day bringing in thousands of visitors to the Fiesta Hermosa street fair. This long-standing tradition features hundreds of crafters and artists and live bands.
Life in Hermosa is spent very much outdoors, with activities like volleyball, surfboarding, skateboarding, running, cycling and boogie boarding found throughout the town. The Strand is a popular paved strip alongside the beach that connects Hermosa with several nearby beach cities. Hermosa is one of three sister Beach Cities, with Manhattan Beach to the north and Redondo Beach to the south and east. Beyond the Strand sits the Hermosa Beach pier, which is at the end of Pier Avenue. It is the beach community’s hot spot for shopping, dining, arts and entertainment.
The wide flat beach makes Hermosa one of the most popular places to play beach volleyball, from professional to amateur. The city is home to the AVP Hermosa Beach Open tournament, and several amateur CBVA tournaments throughout the year. Hermosa Beach is just a few minutes’ commute to many of the largest and best-known names in corporate America in such fields as aerospace, tech, industrial, service and financial.
