El Segundo: Small Town Feel – Large City Conveniences

Home to some mighty giant Fortune 500 Companies, this town is known for its “small town” feel, yet has all the amenities of a big city. The city of El Segundo has its own school district where scores generally run from the 80th to 90th percentile.

The real estate in El Segundo is located in cozy and quiet neighborhoods that have beautiful all American homes, situated on tree lined streets.The great majority of the single family homes have two and three bedrooms, however there are some older wonderful smaller cottage type homes. About two-dozen homes are positioned along the beach bluffs and command ocean views. The rest of the town is built along gently sloping land away from the beach.
The city’s location is next to perfect with LAX next door, and L.A. about 20 miles north.

In addition to the Chevron oil refinery, El Segundo is also home to the El Segundo power plant and adjacent to the Hyperion sewage treatment plant, and many large aerospace industrial giants like: Boeing, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and The Aerospace Corporation. Mattel Toys and Globe Shoes are also in El Segundo. El Segundo has much going for it and its residents are proud of their past and look forward to a great future and more success. Continue reading

The South Bay Is A Great Place To Go Green

A good of friend of mine sent me the following email the other day.
She said, “I am realizing that I am spending less and less time in my car than what I used to. Virtually everything I need is almost within walking distance of my home, which is close to the beach-front. Shopping is a breeze downtown or at The Village Shopping Center up on PCH and Marine Avenue. Upscale stores like Macy’s and other national retail outlets are available as are specialty shops and many one of a kind chic shops.

We have wonderful fully equipped parks, many with tennis courts, basketball courts and other recreational facilities. Even along the beach are park areas with grass, restrooms, etc. for the pleasure of who ever wants to use them. They are well manicured and very well kept and have lush green lawns and trees for that summertime needed shade. I can ride my bike to work and don’t need my car to go shopping; “I think I am going to get rid of the ole gas guzler”.

I am going green all the way ! ” Continue reading
