Redondo Beach Homes for Sale

One of the three “Beach Cities” in Los Angeles County, Redondo Beach is known for its sand, surf and schools. Located in the south bay region of Los Angeles County, Redondo Beach residents love coastal living. The vast beach in this city attracted a great deal of development in the late 1800’s: the luxurious Hotel Redondo’s opening in 1890 (in conjunction with the port and railroad) brought tourists to this scenic oceanfront community by the thousands. Various amusements for tourists soon opened, ranging from golf courses to a gem stone beach and the 12 fragrant acres at Carnation Gardens. Today, the Redondo Beach community still cherishes fun in the sun while placing a great emphasis upon providing excellent living conditions and educations for its lucky residents.
