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.
