Torrance looks like the typical American suburban city: big malls, big streets, big homes. While it's mostly landlocked, there is a part of Torrance which juts out to the coast. Torrance is also notable for having the largest Japanese-American population in the continental United States, so you'll find plenty of Japanese restaurants and stores. The homes here are rarely ostentatious, even close to the ocean.
A big draw for families are the many excellent schools within Torrance's boundaries.
Torrance is bordered on the north by Redondo Beach, Lawndale, Alondra Park, and Gardena, on the east by Carson, and on the south by Palos Verdes Estates and Rolling Hills Estates.
