The City of Torrance
Stretching from the shoreline south of Redondo, inland to the east, the city of Torrance, and its smaller neighbor, the city of Lomita, share slightly warmer days than the beach cities, yet all of the benefits of the being within the coastal breeze zone. Excellent schools, civic, cultural, and sporting facilities are enjoyed by Torrance residents, as well as a wonderfully redeveloped Old Town area.
