Rancho Palos Verdes


Please refer to my overall view of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, as well as this section about the city of Rancho Palos Verdes.

Incorporated in 1973, Rancho Palos Verdes is the fourth, newest and largest municipality on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.  It was established by strong community action to prevent the over-development destined to occur if planning had taken place under Los Angeles County control.

Upwards of 45,000 residents live in primarily single-family homes in a 13 1/2 square mile area.  Homes in the city of Rancho Palos Verdes are composed of individual homes, condominiums, and town homes that encompass a wide range of size and price.  Many of the homes enjoy magnificent views of the ocean, mountains and city lights of the Los Angeles basin.

The 7 1/2 mile coastline has a striking topography of quiet coves and beaches protected by steep cliffs.  Some of the undeveloped acreage along the coast is still devoted to light agriculture and flower cultivation.  The locally grown fruits, vegatables and flowers are sold at a roadside stand on Palos Verdes Drive South, a "must stop" for residents of Palos Verdes homes and condos and visitors alike.

Within the city limits are a number of shopping centers, including the Golden Cove Shopping Center and the large commercial strip along Western Avenue.  Rancho Palos Verdes is also home to golf courses including the Los Verdes Gold Course and the Trump National Golf Course.
