Manhattan Beach

During your school trip to the Los Angeles area, your student group should spend a day exploring the city of Manhattan Beach. During your visit, the students can shop, dine, surf, enjoy some entertainment, or have some fun at the beach. Students of all ages will enjoy this unique city and all it has to offer visitors.


Is your group looking for awesome gifts and souvenirs? If so, Manhattan is the place to shop for those items and much more! At the Village Mall, the group will find stores such as Macy’s, Pottery Barn, Bombay, and Godiva Chocolates. There are also a few restaurants inside the complex for your group to enjoy. Magpie has a variety of gifts for students to purchase. Manhattan Beach Boulevard is another popular area with shops and restaurants.


Are you looking for entertainment? If so, Manhattan Beach is the place to visit. Your student group will find fun attractions such as the Roundhouse Marine Studies Lab and Aquarium, the Marine Sports Complex, and the Manhattan Beach Pier. The Manhattan Beach Pier has an amazing view. The beach has several volleyball nets so you can play and enjoy the view of the water at the same time. The Strand is a walkway where students can take a hike, ride a bike, or skate for miles. The group will never run out of things to examine as you walk this trail. Surfing is another fun activity and the waves on the Manhattan Beach are fun even during the winter.
