This stud muffin puffin and I celebrated our two year anniversary this past weekend <3 For our actual anniversary he was in Croatia so we to spend time together when he got back we headed to the beach!
My brother in law travels each summer and is awesome to open his home to us every year, so off to Redondo Beach we went. Since this is our second year spending a few weekends at one of our favorite places, I wanted to share with you our favorite things to do in Redondo Beach. This isn’t your typical, “go to the beach, walk the pier, find a park, sit at the library, grab a drink, have a some food…”… duh! lol
Yes do all of those things! Walk the pier, enjoy all of the shops, restaurants, and pubs. Rent some bikes, explore all the surrounding beaches, hop on a paddle board, and shop til ya drop! But besides the usual beachin’ stuff, here’s what we especially love about our time in Redondo Beach.
Hit up a local spot! The best Thai food can be found at Siam I Am, a small local restaurant that we love! We walk there every time and when I say small, I mean tiny but mighty. It probably only has 4 tables on the inside but it’s got the most authentic recipes, the most welcoming staff, and the yummiest food! Psst and super reasonably priced.
Must haves! Don’t leave without Thai Tea from Yum Thai Bistro! It’s creamy, it’s sweet, it’s the best! You can grab dessert next door too at Handel’s! It’s homemade yogurt and ice cream and one of the best in town
Pick an afternoon to shop around and cheers at all the places you pass because tipsy shopping is FUNS haha
Pack a picnic! There’s so many walkable spots around the Redondo Beach pier to grab a bite but we love to pack our our picnic (ahem I bought a picnic basket specifically for this reason). We pack snacks, wine, more snacks, and of course SPF. My go to is to pack champs but it’s pretty loud to do
Thennn walk the pier, enjoy all the local shops (there’s vintage shopping around too!), soak up the sun, and relax <3
What we love most is being able to walk to the beach from my brother-in-law’s place, picking fresh produce from his garden, cooking meals together, enjoying sake on the patio…just being outside and being together. Taking some time to be still, connect, and get drunk! haha did I mention that tipsy shopping is super funs?
Will you be hitting up the beach this summer? Or are you a pool type of person? Have you visited Redondo Beach?
