    Meet at the Metlox

    by marinarena Updated Mar 1, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Metlox is a trendy public square area located by Ardmore/Valley and Manhattan Beach Blvd. During the day (until about 7 PM), enjoy shopping posh shops like Busters and Sullivan and afterwards be merry with a drink at the swank Shade Hotel or dine upscale at Petros. If you just want to take in the ambiance, you'll like the cute red dog and fountain. There are occasional concerts and other special events throughout the year here for festive entertainment.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every summer in Polliwog park, Manhattan Beach hosts open seating and free to the public performances from a variety of talented musicans. It runs from the last week in June, through Labor Day weekend; hopwever, there are no dogs, bar-be-cues, or wheeled vehicles at any time in the concert area.

    Manhattan Beach Farmers' Market

    by bruingirl Updated Aug 25, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hermosa Beach has had one....El Segundo has had one....now, finally, Manhattan Beach has a Farmers' Market!! Yippeee!!! Every Tues, from 12-4pm, California farmers create a makeshift store on 13th Street, right behind Shade Hotel. You can get freshly popped kettle corn or tamales or fresh hummus or cookies (mmm...cookies...). Farmers who specialize in different organically grown crops show up with delicious corn, plums, peaches, apples, cucumbers, and a variety of other fruits and vegetables. There's also a flower vendor and seafood vendor. Remember to bring plenty of cash because these farmers don't have credit card machines hooked up to their vans/trucks.

    I think Manhattan Beach have the best surf, although I don't surf, and the beaches here are a lot cleaner, well.. that's what I think :) Most of the residents here are college students, so you can see a lot of partying going on and stuff.. it's kool. When you come to California, it's mostly about the beach and the sun :) well.. and the people underneath the sun of course hehe
