Yearning for a couple of weeks in the South of France but only have Saturday away from the office grind? No need to moan. There's a reasonable substitute right in the South Bay of Southern California. Located just twenty miles south of Los Angeles in sunny Redondo Beach, the secluded, idyllic Riviera Village is an ideal place to spend that precious, well-earned day (or even longer) off. In a six-block radius you'll find a unique collection of clothing and gift shops, restaurants and cafes as well as professional offices to fulfill any need, all with smog-free views of the Pacific Ocean and the golden green dramatic cliffs of the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
