California | Palos Verdes

Palos Verdes is a group of affluent coastal towns in the Palos Verdes Hills in southern California.

The drive along Palos Verdes Drive is one of the finest drives in the United States and tops the list of things to do. Palos Verdes Drive West and South are the highlights, a seaside "yellow brick road" that traces the cliffs, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island.

Malaga Cove is home to a charming shopping plaza and library that features beautiful Spanish Renaissance architecture. Abalone Cove Trails lead from the beach to Portuguese Bend to the left and Inspiration Point. Portuguese Bend is beautiful and largely unspoiled land facing the sea. The Gazebo at Roessler Point has a spectacular view of the coastline Queen’s Necklace all the way around to Malibu.
