HOLLYWOOD RIVIERA Hollywood Riviera, coined by developer Clifford Reid in 1927, got its name from bearing a resemblance to the French Riviera and on the dream of utilizing the area's natural setting for Hollywood's silver screens.

Outdoor amenities include the famous Riviera Village, a pedestrian friendly district for galleries, shopping, dining, a weekly Farmer's Market, and more as well as Torrance Beach, Rat Beach, and several parks.

Recreation activities include a golf course and neighboring park that hosts year round family-friendly activities. Local employment opportunities are available in aerospace, oil, and professional services, as well as commuting across the greater metro area.

LOMITA From a simple ranch house to a sleepy narrow gauge electric railroad stop and a handful of roads named after trees and fruits, Lomita has grown into a small city that, in spite of its growth, has maintained its rustic, small-town flavor. The Lomita railroad museum still stands today as a testament to the city's history. Lomita might be one of the smallest cities in the area, and this fact is part of the area charm. As with Neighboring cities, residents have access to an eclectic blend of restaurants, recreation opportunities, and major commuting freeways. Real estate offerings are a blend of single-family and attached homes that are perfect for families, professionals, and investors.
