El Segundo Travel Guide

El Segundo

Just south of LAX, you’ll find this quaint, sleepy beach community. Originally an oil town—Standard Oil set up its second refinery in El Segundo (hence the name, which means “the second” in Spanish)—now it’s full of families, out wandering the cute residential streets.
