Palos Verdes Estates


 Palos Verdes Estates, located on the western side of the Peninsula was incorporated in 1939.  Approximately 13,700 residents reside in this city and enjoy remarkable views of the Pacific Ocean and Los Angeles basin.  Palos Verdes Estates offers activities that range from recreation sports such as hiking and golf to shopping at the two local commercial areas.  Also located within city limits are many churches and a library.  The city’s layout was designed by the Olmstead brothers, sons of Frederick Law Olmstead Sr., who designed New York City’s Central Park.  In this layout, 849 acres were designated as permanent parkland, so many of the properties enjoy unobstructed views all around.

Rancho Palos Verdes


 Like Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes is a city that offers ocean and city views.  Even though the approximate population of 42,000 residents makes this city the largest on the Peninsula, Rancho Palos Verdes remains a very desirable place to live.  Along with being the most populated city, its incorporation in 1973 makes it the youngest one.   Within city limits are a number of shopping centers including the Golden Cove Shopping Center and the large commercial strip along Western Avenue.   Rancho Palos Verdes is also home to golf courses including the Ocean Trails and Los Verdes Golf Courses.  Located on the Peninsula’s southwest side, the city is home to many quiet coves and beaches protected by steep cliffs.

Rolling Hills Estates


 Situated on the northern side of the Peninsula, Rolling Hills Estates is home to approximately 8,000 residents.  Along with hilly terrain lined with homes, the city has more than 25 miles of scenic trails and six parks.  For those who have shopping on their minds, Rolling Hills  Estates is home to the mile-long        Peninsula Center shopping area which includes open-air shopping plazas      featuring a state-of-the-art movie theater, an ice rink, specialty restaurants, name-brand retailers, and local merchants.


Rolling Hills


 Contrary to Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills is the least populated and oldest city on the Peninsula.  Incepted in 1936, the city is a private gated community of approximately 2,000 residents situated on 1,889 acres in the center of the Peninsula.  Major characteristics of Rolling Hills are the one story ranch style homes and equestrian based lifestyles present throughout.  In addition to being a private gated community with three gated and guarded entrances, there is no commerce or industry.

              Centrally located between Los Angeles and Orange Counties of Southern California, Torrance has become an important hub for commerce in the South Bay.  With a population of over 130,000, Torrance has become the fourth most populated city in Los Angeles County.  In addition to being home for many residents, there are many large and small companies located throughout, the city of Torrance has become headquarters for major employers such as Honda, Toyota, Epson and Kubota.


For times where leisure activities are sought, there are many shopping centers, restaurants, and other entertainment attractions.  There is also a beach-front section on the southwestern part of the city known as the Hollywood Riviera.  On an academic level, Torrance has six public libraries, excellent schools, and is home to El Camino Community College.  The city website at gives detailed information for visitors, current and prospective residents.  Below are some useful addresses and phone numbers for the city:
