top 10 reasons we love the South Bay!

Beach City Life Style - top 10 reasons we love the South Bay!

Yesterday we asked our Twitter followers why they love living in the South Bay of L.A. So we thought we'd list our top 10 reasons why we do. Obviously the reason we devoted this website to highlighting all of our favorite things about the beach cities and this area of So Cal is because we think it's the greatest place on earth filled with amazing people, places, and things. We have way more than just 10 on our list, but for now here are our "first" 10 reason why we love it here: 

1. The weather! Typically in the seventies at all times. Yes, we could use more rain. Otherwise we have weather perfection on a daily basis. 

2. The restaurants - Where to we begin. There are old favorites and lots of new one popping up on a daily basis. So much so this is happening in our own backyard! Read more about top 10 reasons we love the South Bay!
