"go to the beach. Manhattan..." Living in Manhattan Beach Tip by Wilson

Favorite thing: go to the beach. Manhattan Beach has some of the best beaches anywhere and probably the best in LA. MB is the birthplace to beach volleyball and has some great surf in the El Porto section of the city. For those visitors looking for the 'Baywatch' atmosphere, look no further than my hometown. (They make you believe they are talking about Santa Monica, but it is really MB they are imitating!)

Fondest memory: waking up on a beautiful Sunday morning in January to 70 degree temps. Played two hours of beach volleyball with some friends and then had lunch at the local Brewery (see restaurant recommendations below and also check out JR's recs for a great description of their signature appetizer!). Finished the day off watching the sunset with some friends while drinking mango margaritas and listening to the soothing sounds of Mr. Jimmy Buffett.
