    Yup born and raised in the redondo area. Awesome place. If you wind up living in Redondo pm me and ill let you know what areas to stay away from. Long beach is nice as well. Both good and bad areas. Your gonna get that wherever you go. Good luck with the move

    I'll tell you it may be a little less expensive to live in Long Beach then Redondo Beach. But like jr114 says there are good places and bad of each city. i'm In Long Beach now but would much rather be back in washington where i can have fun on the logging roads ain't much to do thats close for the Yota to have fun!!! But need less to say I think both are nice areas be as i grew up here in Long Beach!

    The houses around cal state are pretty nice maybe 50's or 60's could be older.. price range should be around 1800 i think ..at least thats what my buddy pays for a 3br on the north side of the school..
