El Segundo California Photos and Information

El Segundo, California is known as the business friendly city next to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). It is cleaning up its act and becoming the high-rise mecca for corporations seeking a close location to airports and business centers.

El Segundo, CA part of the Los Angeles South Bay area, has a beach, LAX on its perimeter, and a business friendly approach to growth. Long known for its pipes, the tall painted stacks at the beach that are part of operations such as Hyperion Sewage Treatment Plant and Chevron Oil Refinery, the city is growing and going vertical. In addition to the Department of Water Power Steam Plant, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, The Aerospace Corporation, Mattel, and a host of major corporations, over 16,000 residents call El Segundo home.


Once the aerospace capital of the world, times have changed and so has El Segundo. A more diverse mix of businesses fill the landscape. For tourists, El Segundo is actually a pretty nice place to book hotels when you have an early morning flight leaving nearby. The trip to the airport is only five minutes.


What we like about El Segundo is its beach at the bottom of a hill next to Hermosa Beach and Dockweiler Beach. Connected to a  22-mile South Bay Bicycle Trail, bicycling, jogging, roller blading and walking are all extremely popular all day long, it seems. Next to El Segundo Beach is an RV Park at Dockweiler Beach. El Segundo is centrally located between the beaches such as Redondo, Hermosa, Manhattan Beach and Marina del Rey, Playa del Rey, Venice Beach and Santa Monica. It is also close to 405 Freeway, offering easy access to the roads that will get you around L.A. and its attractions.
