The most popular destination for both residents and visitors is Torrance Beach — the southernmost swimming beach on Santa Monica Bay in the Los Angeles area — and the Strand Bike Trail, which runs along the Pacific coastline as far north as Malibu. The Madrona Marsh Preserve is a seasonal wetland, a surprising find in the middle of a densely populated city, where nature lovers can take guided tours and go bird-watching. In Charles H. Wilson Park, free train rides are offered on the Southern California Live Steamers Miniature Railroad, and a weekly farmers’ market showcases a wide selection of California-grown produce.

Fans of contemporary and classical art praise the Torrance Art Museum and the California Museum of Fine Art, and the Chen Art Gallery boasts one of the most substantial collections of Chinese art in the United States. For the science-minded, the Western Museum of Flight contains many different types of aircraft and aviation-related artifacts, while the Lomita Railroad Museum was built as a replica of a 19th-century depot and focuses on steam-era train history.
