One of the highlights of Hermosa Beach is pier plaza. This is the pedestrian area stretching from Hermosa Ave to the base of the pier. There’s a great energy here and these days there doesn’t seem to be an off season. There are a variety of great shops and restaurants and between the palm trees and the lights it has a real vacation atmosphere.
There’s no better time to be down here than during sunset as the colors just make for a magnificent backdrop.
