Safe town, clean place
airplane noise of LAX (though not as bad as before), ugly industry area by beach
Maybury in L.A. safe and inexpensive... for a beach town.
This park is on Grand Avenue near the downtown area. It is where you will find most offices of the El Segundo Recreation Department. There are tennis courts, basketball courts, and places to play racquetball, roller hockey and lawn bowling. Looked like a nice place to just relax too.more
In the downtown area there is a Wall of Honor dedicated to citizens of El Segundo who have made a contribution "to the community of Mankind" and a Walk of Honor consisting of circles placed along the sidewalk on Main Street mentioning individuals and businesses of El Segundo.more

Great facilities, and as a Hilton Honnors member you are really pampered. I love the staff and...more
The décor was nothing to get excited about; but the waiters looked fancy in dress shirts and ties. The menu was varied with seafood and some European dishes. Carrasco's is associated with the Hacienda Hotel. My Sole Stuffed with Crab Meat was quite good. $15 as of October 2012. Sole Stuffed with Crabmeat.more
The decor was not so great but the service was quick and the food excellent. They advertise that they serve only hormone-free chicken, fresh seafood, and NO trans-fat. Best food I had in town. I had Clam Chowder and Cajun Grilled Catfish with a side of Rice Pilaf and fruit salad; it was all very good. $20 as of October 2012. Great Cajun Catfish!...more
Nice place to sit on the patio, listen to the music, and eat bar style food (burgers, pizza, fish and chips). They also have a number of types of beer available. Décor includes a number of posters of Rock and Rollers from the 70s and 80s (think Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin and Motley Crue), and a poster for Wounded Warriors. Since it was Halloween...more
The guy behind the bar was an older Mexican-American gentleman in western attire. Tuesday Night was dance night and several couples were dancing Country & Western style and a few slow dances. I had a great time drinking a couple of rum and cokes and talking with Erik (Odinthor). Not a place to go if you are young and looking to hook up; but the rum...more
Stick n Stein is a sports bar on Sepulveda and Mariposa.It's a good place to go to if there's a big game on (like USC vs UCLA) as the bar is quite large and it's fun when there's 50 fans going at another group of 50 fans.When there's no big game on, well, I don't see the point of coming here as a tourist actually.Don't get me wrong, it is a nice...more
The Stick N Stine is a El Segundo bar that alot of locals go to and some professional sports persons. The Stick N Stine is a resturant / bar that has a baseball look and feel to it. El Segundo is a well known baseball town, hense the look and style inside.When you walk inside you will first notice the trophy case with El Segundo baseball stars in...more
One of the best ways to get to El Segundo is to take the Metro Green line that has several stops along the south bay area. The one here is of the Mariposa station which is where the Hilton Garden Inn (see hotels) is located. The cost is small and the ride is smooth so why put up with the traffic when someone else can drive. You will even get to see...more
One way to get to El Segundo is by a quick BCT bus. It departs from the LAX Transit Center and the Aviation Green Line Station. It's only about 10 min to get to the heart of El Segundo on the BCT 109. The bus runs throughout the day, until about 8-9 PM. Although the #109 has a tendency to run either a bit early and late (my experience), it is...more

California is one of the leading states in Green Energy like electric cars and you will sometimes see charging stations like this one in El Segundo. Electric Cars, though, have a very limited range making them much more practical for urban areas like Greater Los Angeles than more rural areas.more

I have never been warned about so much, or so often, as I was during my visit to California.The cynic in me says that having visible warnings everywhere reduces the chances of people suing.Anyway...read the info in these photos and you too can be thoroughly warned.And don't break any fish, ok?more
Law here in America requires each hotel to post warnings about fire and emergency plans and each hotel you stay at has different ways to post the warnings. Take a few minutes to read the warnings and always check your escape route. Let us hope you never need to use it but you never know if you are going to need it.more
The parking lot at the beach stinks and is way to expensive.
They charge $6 per visit to park or you can use the meters that are there. Most of them are gone at the weekend.
If you use the ticket machines and select to cancel the action you will get a ticket for credit. Only problem is ... there is no place to get the cash.
Unique Suggestions: There is a place just up Grand blvd. that you can park for free and walk down to the beach.
Fun Alternatives: Go during the weekdays and park... do not pay.
Should you be in need of a toy..perhaps you've forgotten to buy anything to take back home, or suddenly remembered a child's birthday....you could do worse than visit the Mattel 'outlet' toy store in El Segundo.Mattel has a huge office block which just happened to be next door to my hotel, with the toy store at ground level, so I was able to pop...more
The downtown streets of El Segundo ...and even those in the surrounding business district...have what I considered to be a remarkable (and unexpected) number of trees, some of which are clearly well-established and of a decent age.And the yards of many of the houses seemed to me to show a love of gardening which I must admit I had not expected to...more
As I was wandering along Main Street, past El Segundo's City Hall (such an oddity for me...a small [population around 16500] settlement being called a 'city'), I noticed these stones set into the pavement (sidewalk).Each had a small story to tell. I don't know why they are there. I've tried to find out, but have failed so far......I assume they...more
The driving range at The Lakes of El Segundo Golf course has multi-level places that you can practice your swing from. The only thing that is asked is that if you can drive a ball 240 yards that you do not use the upper deck and if you can drive a ball over 275 yards you do not use a driver at all.The lower decks are in the shade so it is a nice...more
El Segundo is a safe, convenient place for someone visiting the Los Angeles area. When visiting such a big metropolis like L.A opting for a a closeby suburb can desireable for accomodations and safety concerns. Crime tends to be very low here due to its population and high sense of community pride. With much of the daytime corporate work force...more
