Providing real seaside adventures since the 1800s, Redondo was home of the first Port of Los Angeles. Pacific Steamship vessels stopped between San Francisco and San Diego. Railroads brought tourists by the hundreds each day. Visitors came for rides, amusements and the famous saltwater plunge.
Construction of King Harbor began in 1956. Dedicated in 1966 and named after Cecil King, the waterfront reflects the area's maritime heritage. History buffs can learn more at the Redondo Beach Historical Museum.
Today the horseshoe-shaped Pier and International Boardwalk draw visitors from around the globe. From anchors to zephyrs and bikes to yachts, King Harbor sets the stage for Real Seaside Adventures. See the Guide at left for things to see and do.
Ties to Tinseltown Just 20 miles from the soundstages of Hollywood, King Harbor is the backdrop for TV shows, commercials, movies and music videos.
Other nearby Southern California attractions include Catalina Island, The Getty, Universal Studios Hollywood, and Disneyland. Make your stay here the jumping off point for more.
