Home Care Torrance, CA

They say that your golden years are the best years of your life. For most older Americans, that's how it should be - a time to relax, reflect, and live life in a familiar place. After all, senior citizens in the U.S. have worked tirelessly to build a better economy, serve their communities, and raise families.

However, as seniors grow older, completing daily tasks like showering and enjoying activities such as visiting the historic Torrance Historical Society gets harder without someone by their side. Unfortunately, many older Americans aren't able to rely on their adult children for help. The reality in today's world is that family members do not have the skills or time to dedicate to caring for their parents. That's where Always Best Care Senior Services comes in.

Our in-home care services are for people who prefer to stay at home as they grow older but need ongoing care that family or friends cannot provide. More and more older adults prefer to live far away from long-term, institutionalized facilities and closer to the place where they feel most comfortable - their home. Home care in Torrance, CA is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

“Carrie is amazing. Very knowledgeable about Senior living, lifestyle, and care. Super responsive and phenomenal follow up. An incredible resource for all things "Senior".”

Richard W.

“Always Best Care was there for us after my wife's surgery. We had a caregiver come each day for two weeks to help bath, feed, walk, and tidy the house during working hours so that my wife was not alone. Our caregiver Naomi was a God sent and so delightful. I often overheard my wife and Naomi singing together. What a joy! Thank you Loli and ABC Senior Services for making this service available to Beach Cities.”

Cedric T.

“Loli demonstrated a level of professionalism that stood out, and her service and follow through made our experience with Always Best Care Senior Services stress free. We had a unique situation that required a specific type of caregiver and Loli was able to make a great match! Overall a great experience.”

Lauren D.

“My dad came home from the hospital, then to hospice care for 4 months, then passed at home. Loli helped our family during multiple transitions of his care. She is professional and efficient, but also compassionate and empathic. She was a core contact for our family from in- and out-of town, and always responded quickly to calls, emails or txts. Dad's caregiver needs and schedules were ever-changing and Loli was always able to adjust, helping us to coordinate needs from hospice and family. We are so thankful Dad was able to spend his last months at home. We continue to use Loli's services for our mom. The caregivers are trained well and often became friends to my folks. I highly recommend Loli's services.”

Vicky P.

“Excellent service. Professional staff and wonderful caregivers.”

Elizabeth B.

“I would highly recommend Always Best Care Senior Servicesto help you navigate the care of your loved ones in their senior years of need. We called them when we found out my 92 year old mother in law was due to be released from the hospital but clearly not able to care for herself upon her release. It was a stressful situation but Loli new exactly the right questions to ask and heard our needs and pointed us in the right direction with all that needed to be done. She set up a call with hospice who arranged for all necessary equipment to be delivered in less than a 24 hour period. She also set up 3 very competent experienced care givers to be at the home in that same 24 hour period. The speed and professionalism in which this all happened could not have handled any better in my opinion. Working with Loli at Always Best Care Senior Services put our minds at ease and got everything set up for us to care for my mother in law. Loli was hands on in meeting with us and introducing the care givers and involved with speaking to doctors and hospice and everyone involved with my mother in laws care. She made a highly stressful time much more manageable and guided us every step of the way. She also followed up and made sure all that was supposed to be done was being taken care of. You are in good hands when calling on them for your loved ones care. I am happy to speak to anyone directly if you would like to ask any questions I give my permission for Always Best Care to give my personal phone number out to speak to anyone who is considering using their services.”

Randi E.

“Loli is very caring, worked with us to get the best caregiver match for my parents, was able to schedule someone when we needed a caregiver on short notice and she always made suggestions to us to help make things better and more comfortable for my parents.”

Lissen G.

“We are deeply grateful to Loli and to two of the ABC caregivers in particular, María Flores and Soledad, for their professionalism, dedication and superb service over the course of nearly two years. They provided coverage on evening shifts on weekends and some weekdays —as well as on occasional overnight shifts— for my mother who was in the early-to-moderate stages of Alzheimer’s. (We recently moved her into an assisted living facility.) Because our need for ABC's services was sporadic and variable, Loli and her staff often had to juggle quite a bit to accommodate us — for which we are grateful. Occasionally we’d be assigned a caregiver who wasn’t the best fit but Loli was always responsive to our concerns and would work with us to find a different caregiver. We also appreciate the “added value” that Loli brought to the table — her overall expertise on elder care, knowledge about related resources, and guidance on how to make our home safer for my mother. We are pleased to highly recommend Loli and ABC for your in-home eldercare needs.”

Chris C.

“I needed to find an assisted living community for my dad in a hurry, and knew that I didn't have as much time as I'd like to do all of the research on my own. I was very relieved when I found Loli to help us as a consultant for our search. She was very detail-oriented in acquiring the necessary info from us, and helped us to find a few places with availability that we could visit. I very much appreciated her knowledge of so many various communities, her professionalism, her efficiency, and the wide range of items that she suggested we consider, that we may not have thought of on our own. I would highly recommend her placement services.”

Anna H.

“Always Best Care was an excellent caregiving service for the short time they tended to my ailing mother, a late-stage pancreatic cancer patient. She passed away shortly after we began the caregiving service. In the short time that Always Best Care tended to my mother, the caregiver Maria demonstrated excellent experience. She tended well to my mother and assisted in any other way that she could. Thank you Maria and Always Best Care for your service. I wish you all the kindness and wellness in the world. Colin”

Colin P.

“reliable with excellent oversight”

John W.

“We have had 24/7 care for my mother with ABC for over 2 years. The care and compassion they showed for her really touched my heart. I have had to ask for last minute help when another caregiver (not from ABC) could not show up for a shift, Loli and staff always came through for me. She has always been available to work out problems and last minute requests, I can't say enough about how important that has been to me when I live out of state.I have really been able to rely on their judgement once they got to know my moms likes and needs, they always tried to match her with a caregiver that she would also feel comfortable with personally.The caregivers were long term, they did not come and go, mom really became attached and appreciated them. The caregivers speak highly about Loli as their employer, they have mentioned to me they really feel like she cares and looks after them as well. Touches like Loli dropping by for a visit to chat with mom, or remembering her birthday with a bunch of flowers was so great. I would definitely recommend!”

Cindy P.

“Loli Ramezani and her staff are top notch when it comes to the service they provide. They are very accommodating on all levels from helping you think things through from start to finish, as well as remaining flexible through each process with the ultimate changes that always seem to arise. I highly recommend them and will be using them again if/when the need presents itself”

Elaine C.

“Loli was excellent to work with. She really took the time to understand my father in-law and the family's needs. We had a wonderful caregiver for my father in-law and when it came time to move him from our home, Loli was instrumental in finding a Room and Board that was a great fit. We had used a different service and we can tell you Always Best Care is MUCH higher quality.”

Lisa C.

“This was a wonderful experience. The care giver did a fantastic job taking care of my mother. I would recommend them to anyone. The care giver was kind, helpful, and provided all the help we needed. Their service was instrumental in my mother being able to get her independence.”

Mary K.

“Loli and the staff at Always Best Care were very professional, compassionate, and resourceful in providing in home care for my Mom. Loli was responsive when I needed to talk to her about changes or adjustments to my Mom’s care. With her experience and knowledge in the field of senior care she always had recommendations and resources to reach out to when we needed to consider options and alternatives for my Mom’s care. Loli was very compassionate and respectful of my Mom’s wants and needs. I would highly recommend Loli and Always Best Care for senior care services.”

Dave K.

“Outstanding service. I would recommend Manhattan Beach Always Best Care to anyone who needs to have care for a family member. I've had personal experience with Carrie’s organization and was very impressed with her and her caretakers.”

Judy H.

“I needed to find someone for taking care of my poor mom without being worried. When I talked to Loli I got the feeling she understood and she went through A to Z on everything with me. Care and quality care is truly what she delivers.”

Georgina C.

“Loli truly cares about her clients and their families ! , She is compassionate professional”

Ted D.

The communication has been outstanding as well. When it comes to family, you want to know that they are being taken care of by someone that you can trust. We are so happy to have found Always Best Care.”

Lisa H.

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Torrance, CA?


Home is where the heart is. While that saying can sound a tad cliche, it is especially true for many seniors living in America. When given a choice, older adults most often prefer to grow older at home. An AARP study found that three out of four adults over the age of 50 want to stay in their homes and communities as they age.


When you begin to think about why, it makes sense. Home offers a sense of security, comfort, and familiarity.


The truth is, as we age, we begin to rely on others for help. When a family is too busy or lives too far away to fulfill this role, in-home senior care is often the best solution. Home care services allow seniors to enjoy personal independence while also receiving trustworthy assistance from a trained caregiver.


At Always Best Care, we offer a comprehensive range of home care services to help seniors stay healthy while they get the help they need to remain independent. As your senior loved one gets older, giving them the gift of senior care is one of the best ways to show your love, even if you live far away.

Home Care Torrance, CA
Respite Care

Respite Care Services

According to AARP, more than 53 million adults living in the U.S. provide care to someone over 50 years old. Unfortunately, these caregivers experience stress, exhaustion, and even depression. Our respite care services help family caregivers address urgent obligations, spend time with their children, and enjoy nearby activities. Perhaps more importantly, respite care gives family members time to recharge and regroup. Taking personal time to de-stress reduces the risk of caregiver burnout. So, if you've always wanted to eat at the local Depot Restaurant or visit Pacific Electric Railroad Bridge, don't feel bad. Doing so is great for both you and your loved one.

At the end of the day, our goal is to become a valuable part of your senior's daily routine. That way, we may help give them the highest quality of life possible. We know that staying at home is important for your loved one, and we are here to help make sure that is possible.

If you have been on the fence about non-medical home care, there has never been a better time than now to give your senior the care, assistance, and companionship they deserve.

Aging in Place: The Preferred Choice for Most Seniors

While it's true that some seniors have complicated medical needs that prevent them from staying at home, aging in place is often the best arrangement for seniors and their families. With a trusted caregiver, seniors have the opportunity to live with a sense of dignity and do so as they see fit - something that is unavailable to many older people today.

In-home care makes it possible for millions of seniors to age in place every year. Rather than moving to a strange nursing home, seniors have the chance to stay at home where they feel the happiest and most comfortable.

Here are just a few of the reasons why older men and women prefer to age at home:

How much does a senior's home truly mean to them?

A study published by the American Society on Aging found that more than half of seniors say their home's emotional value means more than how much their home is worth in monetary value. It stands to reason, then, that a senior's home is where they want to grow old.

With the help of elderly care in Torrance, CA, seniors don't have to age in a sterilized care facility. Instead, they can age gracefully in the place they want to be most: their home. In contrast, seniors who move to a long-term care facility must adapt to new environments, new people, and new systems that the facility implements. At this stage in life, this kind of drastic change can be more harmful than helpful.

Institutional care facilities like nursing homes often put large groups of people together to live in one location. On any given day, dozens of staff members and caregivers run in and out of these facilities. Being around so many new people in a relatively small living environment can be dangerous for a seniors' health and wellbeing. When you consider that thousands of seniors passed away in nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, opting for in-home care is often a safer, healthier choice for seniors.

Aging in place has been shown to improve seniors' quality of life, which helps boost physical health and also helps insulate them from viral and bacterial risks found in elderly living facilities.

For many seniors, the ability to live independently with assistance from a caregiver is a priceless option. With in-home care, seniors experience a higher level of independence and freedom - much more so than in other settings like a nursing home. When a senior has the chance to age in place, they get to live life on their own terms, inside the house that they helped make into a home. More independence means more control over their personal lives, too, which leads to increased levels of fulfillment, happiness, and personal gratification. Over time, these positive feelings can manifest into a healthier, longer life.

More independence, a healthier life, and increased comfort are only a few benefits of aging in place. You have to take into consideration the role of cost and convenience. Simply put, it's usually easier and more affordable to help seniors age in place than it is to move them into an institutional care facility. According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, seniors who age in the comfort of their homes can save thousands of dollars per month.

In-home care services from Always Best Care, for instance, are often less expensive than long-term solutions, which can cost upwards of six figures per year. To make matters worse, many residential care facilities are reluctant to accept long-term care insurance and other types of payment assistance.

With Always Best Care's home care services, seniors and their families have a greater level of control over their care plans. In-home care gives seniors the chance to form a bond with a trusted caregiver and also receive unmatched care that is catered to their needs. In long-term care facilities, seniors and their loved ones have much less control over their care plan and have less of a say in who provides their care.

 Elderly Care Torrance, CA

Affordable Care

In-home care is a valuable resource that empowers seniors to age in place on their own terms. However, a big concern for many families and their loved ones is how much in-home care costs. If you're worried that in-home care is too expensive, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that it is one of the most affordable senior care arrangements available.

Typically, hiring an Always Best Care in-home caregiver for a few hours a week is more affordable than sending your loved one to a long-term care facility. This is true even for seniors with more complex care needs.

At Always Best Care, we will work closely with you and your family to develop a Care Plan that not only meets your care needs, but your budget requirements, too. Once we discover the level of care that you or your senior need, we develop an in-home care plan that you can afford.

In addition to our flexible care options, families should also consider the following resources to help offset potential home care costs:

If your loved one qualifies, Medicaid may help reduce in-home care costs. Review your CA's Medicaid program laws and benefits, and make sure your senior's financial and medical needs meet Medicaid eligibility requirements.
Attendance and aid benefits through military service can cover a portion of the costs associated with in-home care for veterans and their spouses.
Many senior care services like in-home care are included in long-term care insurance options. Research different long-term care solutions to find a plan that provides coverage for senior care.
Home care can be included as part of a senior's private insurance plan. Read over your loved one's insurance policy carefully or speak with their insurance provider to determine if in-home care is covered.
Depending on the life insurance plan, you may be able to apply your policy toward long-term care. You may be able to use long-term-care coverage to help pay for in-home elderly care.
 Senior Care Torrance, CA

Compassionate Care. Trusted Caregivers.

When you or your senior loved one needs assistance managing daily tasks at home, finding a qualified caregiver can be challenging. It takes a special kind of person to provide reliable care for your senior loved one. However, a caregiver's role involves more than meal preparation and medication reminders. Many seniors rely on their caregivers for companionship, too.

Our companion care services give seniors the chance to socialize in a safe environment and engage in activities at home. These important efforts boost morale and provide much-needed relief from repetitive daily routines. A one-on-one, engaging conversation can sharpen seniors' minds and give them something in which to be excited.

At Always Best Care, we only hire care providers that we would trust to care for our own loved ones. Our senior caregivers in Torrance, CA understand how important it is to listen and communicate with their seniors. A seemingly small interaction, like a short hug goodbye, can make a major difference in a senior's day. Instead of battling against feelings of isolation, seniors begin to look forward to seeing their caregiver each week.

Understanding the nuances of senior care is just one of the reasons why our care providers are so great at their job.

Unlike some senior care companies, our caregivers must undergo extensive training before they work for Always Best Care. In addition, our caregivers receive ongoing training throughout the year. This training ensures that their standard of care matches up to the high standards we've come to expect. During this training, they will brush up on their communication skills, safety awareness, and symptom spotting. That way, your loved one receives the highest level of non-medical home care from day one.

Assisted Living Referral Services

While it's true that many seniors prefer to age at home, sometimes in-home care isn't the best fit. For those seniors and their families, choosing an assisted living facility makes more sense. Unfortunately, finding the optimal care facility is easier said than done in today's day and age. That's when Always Best Care's assisted living referral services begin to make a lot of sense.

Assisted living is a form of housing intended for seniors who require varying degrees of medical and personal attention. Accommodations may include single rooms, apartments, or shared living arrangements. Assisted living communities are typically designed to resemble a home-like environment and are physically constructed to encourage the independence of residents.

Respite Care Torrance, CA

At assisted living communities, seniors receive help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and eating. They may also benefit from coordination of services with outside healthcare providers, and monitoring of resident activities to ensure their health, safety, and well-being. Caregivers who work at assisted living communities can also provide medication administration and personal care services for older adults.

Other services offered within assisted living communities can include some or all of the following:

  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Recreational Activities
  • Social Outings
  • Emergency Medical Response
  • Medication Monitoring
  • Family Visitation
  • Personal Care
 Caregivers Torrance, CA

At Always Best Care, our representatives can match your senior's emotional, physical, and financial needs with viable assisted living communities nearby. Results are based on comparative data, so you can select the best choice for you or your loved one.

Always Best Care works closely with local senior living communities to gain valuable knowledge that we then use to help seniors and their loved ones make informed decisions. This information can include basic care and rent, resident availability, and services provided. Because Always Best Care is compensated by these communities, we provide senior living referral services at no extra cost to you.

Some of the most popular assisted living communities to consider in our area include the following:

  • Clearwater at South Bay
  • Oakmont of Torrance
  • Spring Senior Assisted Living
  • Villa Sorrento Assisted Living
  • Evergreen Haven Assisted Living
  • Ivy Park at Palos Verdes
Home Care Torrance, CA

For many seniors, moving into a senior living community revolves around how and when they want to make a transition to more involved care. Some seniors are more proactive about transitioning to independent living. Others choose to remain home until their care needs or other requirements are satisfied. Remember - our staff is here to help. Contact our office today to learn more about assisted living communities and how we can find a facility that exceeds your expectations.

 In-Home Care Torrance, CA

Taking the First Step with Always Best Care

The first step in getting quality in-home care starts with a personal consultation with an experienced Always Best Care Care Coordinator. This initial consultation is crucial for our team to learn more about you or your elderly loved one to discover the level of care required. Topics of this consultation typically include:

A discussion of your needs and how our trained caregivers can offer assistance in the most effective way


A draft of your care plan, which includes highly detailed notes and a framework for the care that you or your senior will receive


Discuss payment options and help coordinate billing with your insurance provider


Our caregivers are trained to spot changes that clients exhibit, like mental and physical decline. As your trusted senior care company, we will constantly assess and update your Care Plan to meet any new emotional, intellectual, physical, and emotional needs.

If you have never considered in-home care before, we understand that you and your family may have concerns about your Care Plan and its Care Coordinator. To help give you peace of mind, know that every team member and caregiver must undergo comprehensive training before being assigned to a Care Plan.

At the end of the day, we only hire the best of the best at Always Best Care. Whether you need home care in Torrance, CA 24-hours a day or only need a respite for a couple of hours, we are here to serve you.

When you're ready, we encourage you to contact your local Always Best Care representative to set up a Care Consultation.

What is the best internet provider in Torrance?

CNET recommends Spectrum as the best internet service provider for most households in Torrance. With reasonable speeds and prices, Spectrum offers the widest home internet availability in this coastal community. Many other ISPs, such as AT&T Fiber and T-Mobile Home Internet, serve Torrance, so you'll have options regardless of location.

We've also found the cheapest and fastest plans in Torrance to make your broadband shopping easier. Frontier Fiber offers the most affordable service, costing $45 monthly for 500 megabits of speed. This fiber provider is also tied for the speediest bandwidth in Torrance, matching AT&T Fiber for symmetrical speeds of up to 5 gigabits.

Our methodology

CNET considers speeds, pricing, customer service and overall value to recommend the best internet service in Torrance across several categories. Our evaluation includes referencing a proprietary database built over years of reviewing internet services. We validate that against provider information by spot-checking local addresses for service availability. We also do a close read of providers' terms and conditions and, when needed, will call ISPs to verify the details.

Despite our efforts to find the most recent and accurate information, our process has some limitations you should know about. Pricing and speed data are variable: certain addresses may qualify for different service tiers, and monthly costs may vary, even within a city. The best way to identify your particular options is to plug your address into a provider's website.

Also, the prices, speed and other information listed above and in the provider cards below may differ from what we found in our research. The cards display the full range of a provider's pricing and speed across the US, according to our database of plan information provided directly by ISPs. At the same time, the text is specific to what's available in Torrance. The prices referenced within this article's text come from our research and include applicable discounts for setting up automatic payments each month -- a standard industry offering. Discounts and promotions might also be available for signing a term contract or bundling multiple services.

How CNET chose the best internet providers in Torrance

Internet service providers are numerous and regional. Unlike the latest smartphone, laptop, router or kitchen tool, it’s impractical to personally test every ISP in a given city. So what’s our approach? We start by researching the pricing, availability and speed information, drawing on our own historical ISP data, the provider sites and mapping information from the Federal Communications Commission at

But it doesn’t end there. We go to the FCC’s website to check our data and ensure we consider every ISP that provides service in an area. We also input local addresses on provider websites to find specific options for residents. We look at sources, including the American Customer Satisfaction Index and J.D. Power, to evaluate how happy customers are with an ISP’s service. ISP plans and prices are subject to frequent changes; all information provided is accurate as of publication.

Once we have this localized information, we ask three main questions:

While the answers to those questions are often layered and complex, the providers who come closest to “yes” on all three are the ones we recommend. When selecting the cheapest internet service, we look for the plans with the lowest monthly fee, though we also factor in things like price increases, equipment fees and contracts. Choosing the fastest internet service is relatively straightforward. We look at advertised upload and download speeds and consider real-world speed data from sources like Ookla and FCC reports.

9 Reasons Why You Should Visit Torrance, California Instead of Los Angeles

If you’re planning a trip to Southern California, there’s no doubt that Los Angeles will be on your radar. While LA is often a go-to destination, I suggest a different option: Torrance, California. Just a few miles south of Los Angeles, Torrance has a more laid-back vibe than the City of Angels, with a unique mix of beaches, parks, shopping, and dining.My husband and I visited Torrance with two other t...

If you’re planning a trip to Southern California, there’s no doubt that Los Angeles will be on your radar. While LA is often a go-to destination, I suggest a different option: Torrance, California. Just a few miles south of Los Angeles, Torrance has a more laid-back vibe than the City of Angels, with a unique mix of beaches, parks, shopping, and dining.

My husband and I visited Torrance with two other travel writers for three days in October. While we were very near LA, Torrance had a small-town feel and is an underrated gem with plenty to offer travelers.

If you prefer a small-town atmosphere to a big, busy city, Torrance is the perfect California destination. Here are a few reasons why Torrance is an ideal choice for your next California vacation.

DiscoverTorrance hosted our visit. All opinions are my own.

1. There Are Fewer Crowds

Los Angeles can feel overwhelming with its constant traffic and crowded streets. In contrast, Torrance is a much more peaceful and relaxed destination. You’ll find fewer crowds and quieter streets, allowing you to unwind and enjoy your vacation. The beaches in Torrance are also less crowded than those surrounding LA, allowing you to soak up the sun in a more tranquil setting.

2. It’s More Affordable

Los Angeles is notorious for having a high cost of living, which also extends to tourist activities. Everything from hotels to restaurants to attractions tends to be more expensive in LA.

Torrance offers a range of affordable accommodations, plus plenty of free or low-cost things to do. From the Torrance Certified Farmers Market to the Madrona Marsh Preserve, there are many activities to do here that won’t break the bank.

3. It’s Conveniently Located

One of the best things about Torrance is its proximity to other popular Southern California destinations. From here, you can easily access the beaches of Orange County, the theme parks of Anaheim, and the museums of Los Angeles.

In addition, Torrance has a metro stop that takes you directly to downtown LA for just a few dollars. You can also take a short drive to the stunning Palos Verdes Peninsula, which offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.

Torrance is 23 minutes away from SoFi Stadium, which hosted the 2022 Super Bowl and will be the future host of the 2026 FIFA World Cup and the 2028 Olympics.

4. Torrance Has an Interesting History

Torrance has a rich cultural and historical legacy you can explore during your stay. Torrance was once part of the Spanish land grant of Rancho San Pedro and was named after its founder, Jared Sidney Torrance.

You can visit the Torrance History Museum for a glimpse of the city’s historical structures, artifacts, and photographs. Learning about Olympic long-distance runner Louis Zamperini, a World War II hero, was fascinating. He was a prisoner of war for two years. During his captivity, he was tortured and abused but lived to tell the story and become a Christian Evangelist.

Additionally, the city celebrates the Cherry Blossom Festival every year, showcasing the town’s Japanese heritage.

5. There’s a Foodie Scene

Feeling Inspired? Book This Trip Start Planning

Torrance has an impressively eclectic and diverse culinary scene that rivals LA’s best options. With over 400 eateries that include a diverse range of cuisines and plenty of craft breweries, you can feast on everything from sushi to tacos to farm-to-table fare to international cuisines.

Torrance is dubbed “The Ramen Capital of Southern California,” and there is an official Ramen Map created by Discover Torrance to help you locate all the ramen restaurants.

During our visit, we delighted in meals at MB Grille, Local Kitchen Tavern, Red Car Brewery & Restaurant, 21 Square, and Madre Restaurant. We also stopped at the Torrance Bakery to meet with the owner and tour the facility, followed by lunch at the bakery. We took some sweet treats home with us.

6. Torrance Is a Movie Destination

Torrance is home to several iconic movie set locations. Torrance High School was featured in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, She’s All That, Bruce Almighty, Cursed, and several other movies. The TV show Beverly Hills, 90210 also showcased Torrance High School.

We were fortunate to visit the home where filming took place for some of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The owner told us how they approached her and asked to use her home for the film. She described how they set up some stunts in her house and on the property and moved her furniture around for the show. She also talked about how fans still come to stand outside and take photos.

7. There Are Scenic Parks

If you’re a nature lover, Torrance has plenty of scenic parks to explore without the crowds. From the Madrona Marsh Preserve and Nature Center to Wilson Park, Torrance offers outdoor enthusiasts miles of hiking trails, picnic areas, bird watching, and nature walks.

The Madrona Marsh Preserve is the largest wetland in the country. Wilson Park provides the Annenberg Tree House, the first universally accessible treehouse in a public space in California. The 2,500-square-foot wooden structure is designed to give individuals of all physical abilities and ages an awe-inspiring experience with a bird’s-eye view.

8. Torrance Has Beautiful Beaches

Torrance’s beaches are serene and uncrowded and a quieter alternative to the well-known beaches of Santa Monica and Venice. You can enjoy the Pacific Ocean views without having to elbow your way through hordes of people.

In Torrance, you can spend a lazy afternoon sunbathing, swimming, or surfing at Redondo Beach, Torrance Beach, and Rat Beach.

9. There’s World-Class Shopping

Torrance is also a shopping mecca. You’ll find dozens of shopping complexes, plazas, and boutiques all over the city, including the 2.5-million square feet of shopping at the state-of-the-art, multi-level Del Amo Fashion Center. As one of the largest malls in the country, Del Amo offers a wide range of high-end and local brands, restaurants, and entertainment venues.

Where to Stay When Visiting Torrance

Torrance is home to safe, affordable, and welcoming lodging properties. The hotels offer a little bit of everything—from luxurious suites to cozy hotel rooms that are easier on the budget.

We stayed at the Bluestem Hotel, part of the Ascend Hotel Collection on Sepulveda Boulevard. It was recently renovated and provided a comfortable stay. Two things I loved about this hotel were the gated private parking area and the gorgeous outdoor seating area, lit with strings of sparkling lights in the evening. A water feature and fire pits add to the ambiance.

Our writer friends stayed at the Best Western Plus Avita Suites on Torrance Blvd. It was only a half-mile from the Del Amo Fashion Center.

While Los Angeles may be the city of dreams, Torrance is a perfect alternative. From its peaceful atmosphere and serene beaches to world-class shopping, rich culture, and fantastic foodie scene, Torrance is a hidden gem with everything you need for a memorable trip. Whether you’re a solo traveler, couple, or family, Torrance is definitely worth a visit and deserves a spot on your travel itinerary.
