Default What nice cities are near the LAX Airport

Hey - I was hoping someone could help me out. We are thinking of moving to LA - husband offered job...He will be traveling a lot so he'll need to be fairly close (not too close) to the airport. We really do want the BEST schools - is that even possible near LAX? We have children....

And if not - what would be an area that has the easiest commute that's safe and has great schools? Looking for nice home too. I know they are expensive.

Thanks!

El Segundo is probably a little bit too close to the airport and the schools in Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach aren't as good as those in Manhattan Beach.

El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach are all within 15 minutes of the airport. 20-30 minutes away would include Redondo Beach and the Palos Verdes Peninsula. All of these cities have good schools.

I have developed web pages with a vast amount of information about each of the beach cities in the South Bay of Los Angeles. I have separate pages with information about each of the cities of Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills and Rolling Hills Estates, San Pedro, Torrance, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and El Segundo. Each of these pages on each of the cities includes demographic information, information on the cities' neighborhoods, school, information, parks and recreation information, cultural facilities, property tax rates, and much more. I also have separate pages on each of these cities history, including a great resource page for the overall history of the South Bay of Los Angeles. These pages, and their links can be accessed at my home page of http://www.maureenmegowan.com .

This information is far more extensive than any other resource available on the internet and I thought you might be interested on linking these pages from your web site.

My local newspaper, in fact, recently did a feature article on us:http://www.maureenmegowan.com/PageMa...D=1986733&NF=1

Thank you
Maureen Megowan

I thought Marina del Rey was lovely. Also, parts of Playa del Rey aren't bad.

I Love Marina Del Rey, and agree that parts of Playa are nice. However, they are LAUSD, and not even schools for advanced studies within LAUSD, so I can't recommend the schools in those neighborhoods. Sorry I have to agree with the other posters that Manhattan and Redondo Beach are your best bets!

Manhattan Beach, easily one of the best places to live.

Blue ribbon schools, clean beaches, friendly people, and family atmosphere.
