Located in the South Bay region of Los Angeles, the City of Gardena is home to the most Japanese Americans in California, and therefore contains the largest concentration of Japanese companies within the continental United States. The city is known for its strawberries, and your visit will be just as sweet as the fruit.
Top things to do include viewing Chinese art at the Chen Art Gallery, exploring history at the International Printing Museum, which has one of the largest collections of antique printing presses in the country, and stopping by Manhattan, Hermosa, or Redonda beaches. Since Gardena is nicknamed Freeway City, check out antique, vintage and muscle cars at the Automobile Driving Museum, take a Porsche for a test drive at the Porsche Driving Experience Center, and race go karts at K1 Speed. Take the kids to Skyzone Indoor Trampoline Park, Alondra Park, and the Gardena Bowling Center -- or leave them behind to visit the Hustler Casino.
The best time to visit Gardena is from June to August, when it doesn't rain, and it's hot in the day time and cool at night.
For the best restaurants, check out Italian Cafe, which offers gluten-free and vegan Italian options, Indian Tandoori Halal Restaurant for Asian and Indian cuisine, Giuliano's Delicatessan for gluten-free Italian sandwiches. For seafood, visit The Pan, Zacatecas Mexican Restaurant, Blue Salt Fish Grill, and California Fish Grill.
