"Mediocre So Cal Neighborhood"

This tiny neighborhood on the southern portion of Torrance is a fairly typical middle-class neighborhood, filled with Ranch homes and pleasant leafy streets of the kind you might have found in the Valley some 30 years ago. I’ve not spent much time in this neighborhood, but it looks like a pretty standard So Cal neighborhood—pretty much like a million other places.

As far as the offerings that Hawthorne and Sepulveda might offer to potential residents, they too are largely of the mediocre variety. You can find all the usual things you would like out of a middle-class suburban area—a See’s Candy, a place to fix your car, a supermarket, the whole boring shebang. Even Torrance Heights’ attempts at breaking from this mold are middle of the road. For example, as far as nightlife in this neighborhood, all you will find pretty much is National Sports Grill—a very run-of-the-mill bar-n-grill that depends on its many screens to attract a clientele. (Another tacky feature of this bar is that it requires its female wait-staff to wear referee uniforms.)

In my opinion, the only place I know of that somewhat breaks away from this bland mood is Sully’s on Hawthorne. It has a Hawaiian theme and can sometimes be fun.

Overall, however, I would not go out of my way to visit anywhere here.
