It seems that the City of Manhattan Beach likes to offer the venue for fun events such as Volleyball Competitions. While there for the competition, VT was entered in, I noticed that a bigger Volleyball Competition was scheduled for the very next weekend.
On the City's website, I noticed a series of concerts in the park offered. Always something going on around town so check the website before arriving and see if there is an activity to interest you.

There are several coffee shops throughout Manhattan Beach. Hang out at one of them and you might run into professionals like the fellows shown here. Strike up a conversation and you never know what might happen!
This path along the beach runs all the way through Manhattan Beach. I believe it begins way up in Santa Monica and runs south beyond Redondo Beach.
There are many locations around here that inspire you to photograph, or paint, or just sit and relax.
