About Redondo Beach, California

In 1542, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo sailed into the Santa Monica Bay and discovered the beauty that local Native Americans already knew. In the late 1700's through the late 1800's Redondo Beach was a rich farming and ranching area that was part of the 43,000 acre Dominguez Rancho set aside in the Spanish Land Grant of 1784.

Around the turn of the century, Redondo Beach proved a perfect deep water harbor and fast became an important part of the thriving Los Angeles area trade. Rail, sail and steamship lines served a thriving lumber and shipping business. Redondo Beach was also a popular resort stop providing recreation and rest for crowds of "inlanders".

The city incorporated on April 29, 1892 and, though eventually losing the shipping business to the Port of Los Angeles, continues to be a popular resort location, a thriving center of small and large businesses and one the the most popular and safest places to live.

The City of Redondo Beach holds many treasures including the ever popular Pier and International Boardwalk; Riviera Village, the comfortable "town within a town"; the Galleria, an energetic, world-class shopping mall; the beautiful King Harbor Marina; and much more.
