Around Harbor City

Travel south along Harbor City's eastern boarder, and you'll largely find small businesses and strip malls dotting the landscape. As you head west along Lomita Boulevard, Harbor City's residential community begins to appear. Single-family homes are very popular in this part of the city, and its not unusual to see structures that are several stories tall in neighborhoods. Almost half of those who live in the city choose to rent, and apartment complexes are also very common sights. Apartments are generally bunched in groups of 10, and there are no large residential skyscrapers like in Hollywood or other parts of Los Angeles.

Having a diverse population in Harbor City has its advantages, one offering a wide variety of culinary traditions and options. Harbor City's cultural mosaic is a bonus to those who are on a perpetual quest for that new restaurant or dish that you will find along the Pacific Coast Highway. Some of Los Angeles' most authentic and Latino cuisine can be found here, and Mexican restaurants often have certain seasonal menu options that can only be found during specific times of the year. Fresh seafood is also a favorite local dish, and don't be surprised if your meal was caught only a few miles away that very same day.

Since the Pacific Ocean is only a few minutes away, boating and fishing is a big part of the neighborhood's culture. Many residents enjoy taking their boats out onto the water, so expect to see plenty of trucks and SUVs towing watercraft all around town. This area is also generally filled with commuters, so anticipate plenty of traffic as people commute to work each day.

Grabbing a few drinks and enjoying some locally caught seafood after work is a favorite pastime for those who live in Harbor City. Although only 2.58 square miles of land, there are plenty of great options to grab a casual drink with friends along Western Avenue and Pacific Coast Highway. Long Beach is also only a few miles away, meaning gaining access to The Pike and its abundance of restaurants and bars is a total breeze.

Few things can match the joy of spending a day out on the water in the California sunshine and that's why residents often choose to take their boats out for pleasure cruises whenever they get the chance. If you want to spend your day away from home, boats to Catalina Island leave all hours of the day and are excellent for a fun excursion with family or friends. Spend the day in Harbor Park, which is a fun recreational park where you can enjoy a picnic lunch, read a book, or lounge on the grass. Those who wish to be more active outdoors can play baseball on the fields or ride their bikes along the trails in the Ken Malloy Harbor Regional Park on South Normandie Avenue.
