Many of the same things that make Manhattan Beach great are also available in Hermosa Beach homes for sale, such as proximity to great restaurants, stores, etc. The difference could be summed up in the words of a friend of mine: “Manhattan Beach has great restaurants that serve alcohol; Hermosa Beach has great bars that serve good food.”
