Living in Redondo Beach, CA
Redondo Beach has changed quite extensively over the course of its history, but one thing has held true: its resort atmosphere attracts a lot of people. The city's popularity began in 1890, when Hotel Redondo opened. The area became a destination for tourists who would come by way of the railroad or steamship. Redondo Beach also became a popular hub for oil and lumber freight. The city's population grew steadily, and increased dramatically in the 1950s.
While the area is still a resort town today, there's also a lot offered for year-round residents. The city has public libraries, a performing arts center, numerous parks and a large recreational and commercial harbor. Large employers include companies housed in an industrial complex, which is home to the Northrop Grumman Corporation Campus. Many residents also work at the Redondo Beach Pier or the Galleria at South Bay, a mall in the eastern part of the city.
