El Segundo

Welcome to El Segundo

A vibrant lifestyle awaits in this beachside Southern California gem

Between its perch on Santa Monica Bay to its proximity to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), it’s no wonder El Segundo has become one of the most sought-after communities in California. Impeccable weather, coupled with the liveliness SoCal is famous for, has turned the beachy enclave into a veritable haven for professionals, retirees, and families.

While the flourishing coastal hamlet is mere minutes away from Los Angeles’ dense metropolitan energy, El Segundo preserves its charming, small-town ambiance. The vibe is magnified in its spectacular Smoky Hollow region, which thrives with independent boutiques, stellar bars, breweries, restaurants, and a handful of enthralling museums.

But don’t be fooled by El Segundo’s breezy, beachy mellowness. The town is a veritable mecca of industry. From Fortune 500 companies to aerospace leaders, the beautiful city abounds with entrepreneurial and creative energy. Toss in gorgeous residential neighborhoods and an upmarket ethos, and it’s easy to see why so many people are eager to call this city home.

Local Lifestyle

El Segundo has a spirited and progressive ethos. It holds tremendous appeal for affluent professionals across industries, whether they work in engineering, the creative arts, journalism, or technology. The top-performing schools in the city are also a huge draw for families with children, while its proximity to irresistible surf and awesome hiking trails renders it a natural fit for outdoor adventurers. You’ll often find your neighbors in line at one of the town’s buzzy coffeehouses or kicking back on El Segundo Beach during their time off. 

Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping

Los Angeles is a global destination for foodies, and El Segundo only adds to its glowing international reputation. Sausal perpetuates Southern California’s status as one of the leading providers of authentic Mexican fare with a menu that titillates and delights in equal measure. Try their beef Birria queso tacos for evidence. Jame is just as divine with its slew of made-from-scratch Italian plates, while Rock & Brews is the place to convene with friends over craft beers, with more than 100 artisanal beers on draft.

For outrageously delicious Thai food, El Segundo residents head nowhere else than Jetta Thai. Meanwhile, Caló Kitchen + Tequila serves the best margaritas north of the border. And when a special occasion arises, locals and visitors alike book a reservation at the super-trendy and delectable Paul Martin’s American Grill, a fashionable outpost that celebrates California’s freshest bounty.
