The Rich and Not So Famous

Rancho Palos Verdes is an exclusive housing area located on a peninsula that juts out of the south bay area directly south of Redondo Beach and Torrance and west of Long Beach and San Pedro. My favorite uncle and aunt lived here for many years and I always loved going to visit them. Their house was high on the hill overlooking where MarineLand used to be. On a clear day (which they had many of) you could see across the channel the 26 miles to Catalina Island.

Homes run over $1 million and yet it has a nice neighborhood feel. My uncle rose far above his Angela Ashes beginnings.

Lots of rocky shoreline to explore on the Peninsula. Here is a view of the South Bay Area including Redondo and Hermosa Beaches.
