El Segundo “The Second” lies well off the PCH. That way traffic doesn’t route through the neighborhood and it stays quiet and leafy. Today I walk you through the “downtown” part and then down to the beach. I love the way these little neighborhoods have their own little commercial centers and small restaurants and stores and coffee shops and parks. It’s literally a ten minute walk from the beach and just down the road, or bike path, from Manhattan beach. The day before, we say people practicing hang gliding on the dunes. Another attribute(?) is that there’s very limited parking and a big refinery right there so not many people come to this beach. It’s mainly people walking down from the neighborhood. I walk on an early and quiet Sunday morning so we have the place mostly to ourselves.
Let me know your memories, stories, and thoughts about Southern California beach towns in the comments below. Cheers. -H

El Segundo is a city in Los Angeles County, California, United States. El Segundo from Spanish, means “The Second”. Located on the Santa Monica Bay, it was incorporated on January 18, 1917, and part of the South Bay Cities Council of Governments. The population was 16,654 at the 2010 census, slightly up from 16,033 at the 2000 census
The El Segundo and Los Angeles coastal area was first settled by the Tongva (or Gabrieleños) Native American tribes thousands of years ago. The area was once a part of Rancho Sausal Redondo (“Round Willow Patch Ranch”). Rancho Sausal Redondo extended from Playa Del Rey in the north to Redondo Beach in the south. Originally a Mexican land grant owned by Antonio Ygnacio Avila, the rancho was later purchased by a Scottish baronet named Sir Robert Burnett. After his return to Scotland, the property was purchased by then-manager of the rancho, Daniel Freeman. Daniel Freeman sold portions of the rancho to several persons. George H. Peck owned the 840 acres (3.4 km2) of land where the Chevron Refinery now sits. Peck also developed land in neighboring El Porto, where a street still bears his name. The city earned its name (“the second” in Spanish) as it was the site of the second Standard Oil refinery on the West Coast (the first was at Richmond in Northern California), when Standard Oil of California purchased the farm land in 1911.
The Douglas Aircraft Company plant in El Segundo was one of the major aircraft manufacturing facilities in California during World War II. It was one of the major producers of SBD Dauntless dive bombers, which achieved fame in the Battle of Midway. The facility, now operated by Northrop Grumman, is still an aircraft plant.
In 1930, Los Angeles Municipal Airport, later Los Angeles International Airport, opened north of El Segundo; its presence led to the concentration of aerospace and aviation-related firms in the El Segundo area
