There’s nothing Manhattan about Manhattan Beach, California. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Decked out with people relaxing and soaking in the sun, the beach, of course, inherently, is a bit different than the big apple. Manhattan Beach has more charm than just the typical oceanside draw, though. The architecture of the houses along the boardwalk of Manhattan Beach was the first thing that ever caught my eye there. (What can I say, I like windows and the color teal…and the good people there do, too!) More importantly, however, is the bicycle-friendly attitude of the beach. If you like the idea of pedaling along the beach at sunset without being bothered, do it on Manhattan Beach. The stroll is one of the easiest you’ll ever find and the view is absolutely breathtaking, too. Make a pit stop along the beach for some real Mexican food or a cocktail near the waves. Whatever you do, don’t bypass this oh so awesome adventure you could have for next to no money.
