The city of Torrance, California lies a little northeast of Long Beach, in the southern part of Los Angeles County. It has a bustling population of nearly 150,000, and is a primarily coastal city since much of it lies only a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. Torrance has 1.5 miles of beautiful beaches, which are often more secluded as they are lesser-known than the nearby beaches of Santa Monica, Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach.

Early History

Torrance, like much of Southern California, was originally inhabited by Native Americans, and later by Spanish settlers in the 1700s. A land grant for Rancho San Pedro, which includes land on which present-day Torrance sits, was issued in 1784. Torrance was incorporated as a U.S. city in May of 1921.
