Redondo Beach is located in the southern part of the state of California and a city in Los Angeles County and sits adjacent to the Palos Verde Peninsula and the Hermosa Beach along the Santa Monica Bay. The area where the present-day Redondo Beach stands was inhabited originally by the Gabrielino or Tongva Indians, and it then became a part of Rancho San Pedro, a Spanish land grant in 1784 to Juan Dominguez. The area used to be a commercial port of Los Angeles, before the San Pedro Harbor was developed. It also used to be a trade center for lumber and oil, and then later grew as a beach resort and was named after the Redondo Hotel that was built in 1890. Presently, it became a bedroom community of the greater Los Angeles area. Protected by a breakwater and its modern marina facilities, Redondo Beach has become a popular attraction to many visitors.
