EscapeWizard.com suggests visiting some of Redondo Beach’s most famous attractions: the Marina, and the Pier. You can expect a crowd when traveling to the Pier, as many go daily to enjoy a walk along the ocean, browse seaside shops, or cast a fishing line out for a fresh, local catch. In the summer months, free concerts are hosted on the Pier for the public to enjoy.

Surfing is a staple activity of the Redondo Beach lifestyle, and surfers can be spotted year-round catching the waves.

Whether you love art or simply love the ocean, EscapeWizard.com urges you not to miss the “Whaling Wall”. Painted by world-famous artist Wyland, this 87’x 622’ mural depicts migrating whales in a stunning underwater scene. The wall was created to spread awareness and encourage oceanic conservation amongst the public. The wall is located on North Harbor Drive at Marina Way and is available for viewing 24 hours a day.

For some family friendly fun indoors, take a public tour of the Marine Research Laboratory. EscapeWizard.com also suggests the Redondo Beach Historic Museum and the Morrell House Living History Museum for a taste of local history. Admission is offered for free to both museums.
