Manhattan Beach is one of the crown jewels along the Southern California coast. Consisting of over 2 miles of beachfront, the city is home to world class white sand beaches, great surf, many family friendly parks, and low-key upscale living. With one of the best school districts in the state, Manhattan Beach is a popular place for families who want to live the active beach lifestyle. The city hosts many great events throughout the year including the beach events during the International Surf Festival in late July and early August, the Hometown Fair and 10K Run in early October, Pumpkin Races around Halloween, and the annual Christmas Fireworks Show in December. If fine dining is your passion, Manhattan Beach has many fantastic restaurants located just steps from the beach and the city’s historic Pier. Residential areas include the architectural masterpieces along the Strand in the sand section, the large ocean view lots in the Hill section, the kid friendly streets in the Tree section, the gated community at the Manhattan Village, and the school close Mira Costa and Liberty Village neighborhoods. The beach lifestyle and luxury comes at a prices as homes in Manhattan Beach start at $1 million and has recently reached as high at $14 million.
