So you’ve got an afternoon without anything to do and you are looking for a short road trip? Well how about an afternoon at Hermosa Beach? This lovely beach is just a short 40 minute drive from Los Angeles and yet it features beautiful coastlines and lots of great beach activities to keep you and the whole family busy and enjoying the fantastic California weather. Hermosa Beach is a small city, living its life along the coastline as a true bustling beachfront city, though it is also a great destination for tourists or locals just looking for an enjoyable afternoon.
Hermosa Beach is probably best known for its surfing, paddleboarding, volleyball and sunbathing. Though there is also a great path that runs along Hermosa Beach called The Strand where you can find a lot of fun places to shop, eat or just enjoy a beer or three. Yet it is the beach volleyball that is usually the most popular at Hermosa Beach, as it is home to the AVP Hermosa Beach Tournament and several amateur tournaments the rest of the year as well. You may even recognize Hermosa Beach from television, as a lot of the show The O.C. Was filmed at this beach.
So hop on the 110 south to the 105 west and before you know it you’ll be at the beach ready to enjoy a sunny afternoon. Be sure to make that drive in your E550 Cabriolet from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. This soft-top convertible is perfect for a bright California drive to the beach. Put the top down and just cruise towards relaxation and rest. And since it’s a Mercedes, you’ll be surrounded by luxury and elegance as you unwind from your stressful week. Then just prepare to enjoy a game of beach volleyball or bring a blanket and just lay out on the beach.
