Oh, Torry! She cannot be left out of the discussion of cities near L.A. She is ideal in that she is grand but not too flashy, and is close to the star of the region, L.A. The best thing about Torry? Her thriftness! She has many a retail delight, including Del Amo Mall, the indeed her most recognizable "birthmark"!

To note ... in the nearby South Bay beach cities of Redondo, Hermosa and Manhattan, as well as Carson (Home Depot Center), there is much more to do. I'll be covering more of the South Bay, the beachy, normal and non-flashy part of greater LA!

Much more to come!
