While Redondo Beach is primarily famous for its vibrant harborand unmistakable horseshoe-shaped pier,the community also hasa rich history and heritage. If you’re interested in getting to know Redondo Beach better, below are five of the best local historic attractions you can visit.
1. Redondo Beach Historical Museum (302 Flagler Lane)
Inside the museum you’ll find local artifacts, photographs, and memorabilia that show how the city’s history and culture has evolved over the years. The place itself is something of an artifact – the museum is housed in an absolute charmer of a Queen Anne cottage built in thelate 19th century. The cottage originally stood on Garnet before it got moved toS. Broadway and then finally to Heritage Court.
2. Morrell House Living History Museum (298 Flagler Lane)
Originally located on the east side of North Catalina, the Morrell House was moved to Heritage Court and completely restored by volunteers, with furniture and accessories long kept in storage brought out and used again. The place can be rented for private parties, meetings, and events. If you have a special occasion that you want to celebrate in a house that exudes an authentic turn-of-the-century vibe, just make a booking six months in advance.
3. Riviera Village (Riviera Village Way)
Originally known as the Hollywood Riviera, Riviera Village was originally designed to be a movie production hub, and although some films were made there in the 1930s, it never really took off. Instead, the Riviera has become a laidback and idyllic neighborhood home to over 300 unique boutiques, restaurants, galleries, salons, and other services. Dubbed the quintessential SoCal beach town, Riviera Village is a lovely place for leisurely strolls, window shopping, and more.
4. American Legion Clubhouse (412 S Camino Real)
The American Legion is the biggest wartime veterans’ service organization in the country, with the goal of inspiring patriotism in younger generations through its diverse programs and activities. The clubhouse is open to members and guests, andvarious events – such as bingo fundraisers, live music entertainment, field trips and more – are open to the public throughout the year. Feel free to visit their website for their schedule of events to show your support for our troops.
5. Old Historic Pier
The city’s coastline has seen at least seven piers built, dismantled, and restored in the last 100 years. The current seventh-generation pier was completed in 1995. Along with a reinforced concrete foundation, the latest pier also incorporates design elements of the past structures, giving Redondo Beach’s modern business district a bit of vintage flair.
