#61 Redondo Beach

Redondo Beach and its Pleasure Pier have been a destination since 1889. It is the 7th pier to be constructed on this beach. The Victorian Hotel Redondo opened in 1890 and was an important Coastal Resort of the West that was linked to the railways. It was up there in luxury with the likes of the Hotel Del Coronado with 3 floors and 225 rooms. Unfortunately, the hotel was demolished in 1926 and would certainly have been an icon today.
