Hawthorne, California, located near the Los Angeles International Airport is an area that is both commercial and residential. Because of its proximity to the Pacific Ocean and South Bay beach cities, like Manhattan Beach, Hawthorne is considered to be somewhat “up and coming”. Wedged between the sea and rolling California hills, Hawthorne has also leant itself to music history as it was the birthplace of The Beach Boys.
One of the most unique things to do in Hawthorne involves flying, more specifically, taking a helicopter ride over the Greater Los Angeles area with Star Helicopters. It is an exhilarating way to see the dynamic expanse of LA.
Music history fans should make a brief drive past The Beach Boys monument, which is on display outside their childhood home. Hangar 18 Climbing Gym South Bay is a great place for fun physical activity, as it features top roping, bouldering, lead climbing, yoga, and fitness classes.
Hawthorne is located near a number of beautiful beaches, as well, including Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach. The iconic Santa Monica Pier is not too far away either.
Hawthorne is also centrally located for classic Los Angeles tourist activities like Disneyland and Universal Studios, both of which offer family entertainment and can easily eat up a weekend.

September is a great time to visit Hawthorne. Los Angeles experiences a bit of a delayed summer, as June can be gloomy and high temperatures can extend through October. September is prime time as the waves of tourists will have subsided throughout LA's South Bay.
