One of Los Angeles County’s “Beach Cities,” Redondo Beach delivers the sunny Pacific Coast lifestyle to approximately 67,800 residents. South Redondo comprises the beachfront area, while North Redondo is located inland, adjacent to neighboring cities, Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach.
Redondo Beach was officially incorporated in 1892.
The opening of Hotel Redondo spurred the former Rancho San Pedro land toward its growth as an independent city. It provided traders brought in by train or steamship with a reliable and enjoyable place to stay. The hotel featured more than 200 rooms, lush landscaping, an 18-hole golf course, and a number of tennis courts. The amenities provided ample recreation and entertainment for businessmen visiting Los Angeles County’s first port for oil and lumber trade. The hotel was demolished in 1925.
With an appealing reputation as a sunny resort town, Redondo Beach continued to attract tourists throughout the early 20th century and enjoyed a significant population boom during the 1950s and 1960s.
