I live in the City of Gardena and I was born in Torrance, CA. I consider myself a South Bay native. South Bay includes all communities south of the 105 and west of Orange County(with the exception of Compton which is generally considered South LA. A more restrictive definition of the South Bay includes only the Beach Cities Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, El Segundo, the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Hawthorne, Gardena, Carson, Lawndale, Torrance and Long Beach.
We have two casinos in Gardena. The one to the left is Larry Flynt's Hustler Casino. You can catch him from time to time in his pimped out all GOLD wheelchair!
I'm a good 13 minute drive from the Ocean.
