‘Tis the season for weekend getaways! A couple of weeks ago, CJ and I headed to Torrance, CA for a fun weekend away. Both of us had never been there, despite visiting LA many times individually (CJ actually used to live there). If you’re wondering where Torrance is, it’s in So Cal, in the South Bay area of LA. The city was incorporated in 1921 and is named after Jared Sidney Torrance. He wanted to develop a city that was residential yet industrial between LA and the San Pedro Harbor. Today, Torrance is one of the safest areas in LA and still has that balance with beautiful homes, families and thriving businesses. It was such a fun weekend away, one that we definitely ate our way through!
Here’s how we spent our time in Torrance.
Getting to Torrance is super easy. You can call it a road trip down to So Cal, or you can hop on a plane! It’s located conveniently between LAX and Long Beach Airport so you can decide the best flight option for you. We flew into Long Beach from Sacramento because the rates were a bit lower but it totally depends on where you’re coming from and the time of year so check both! I loved flying into LGB because it’s a small airport and we didn’t have to worry about long lines or crowds.
On the low, Torrance has some of the BEST FOOD! The options are endless. From Mexican to Asian, CJ and I did our best to take advantage of all of the flavors. We are plotting our return to eat our way through the city.
Even if you can’t spend an entire weekend in Torrance, you have to experience it yourself. If you’ve been to or live in Torrance, please share your recommendations in the comments so we can keep the good and tasty vibes going!
