The Chowignas were the first people to stay in the Redondo Beach area. They fished and used the salt from the salt flats to preserve their food.
In the late 19th century people from around California began vacationing on the coast and many settled in the Redondo Beach area. The town grew mainly because of the railroad and port. The development of the lumber trade ensured the port was always busy. Now there is only one lumber mill left standing and this has been converted to house the Cannery Row art studio. It’s a unique site which you should definitely check out.
The first hotel, the Hotel Redondo, was built in 1889 and because of this, Redondo Beach soon became a desirable vacation destination.
The local cuisine is essentially American with hints of European and Asian dishes filtering into it. Give it all a try during your stay.
