This aquarium is a bit small, located at the end of the Manhattan Beach pier. While it's not big, they do have some nice facilities and it's a nice spot to relax and have fun while you're walking around the beach an pier. There's a nice food shop around the corner, a great spot for a fun afternoon date.
Gable House is by far the best and highest attended Bowling Alley in the South Bay. There are tons of lanes, great service, good prices, lots of food choices, a bar, vending machines, video games, pool, and a great pro shop. It's simply the best.
This little shop is located right near Trader Joe's and Tomboy's. The shop has great prices and does quality work. The owner and staff are very friendly and provide great service. Good location and a great place for hair. Check it out, you just might like it.
Sola Motor Works has a little shop on PCH right down from the Albertsons and AIS building. This family owned business is friendly and helpfull when working on your car and they always do a good job at a good price. They're honest and you'll get your car fixed in a speedy fashion.
I reviewed this place before, and when I reviewed it, it was great, but sadly that fact has changed. The people who once worked there and were honest and did great work for cheap are almost all gone now. They have new people in there who seem to also screw you over and do crappy, barely sufficient repair jobs. I recently took my car there, assuming they'd do great, timely work for a cheap price, but instead I found myself having more and more problems and I had to come back 3 times in one week!!! They tried to screw my each time and charge me for jobs they obviously didn't do right. NEVER go here, they used to be a good place to go, but now they will only screw you over and steal your money. Everyone should report them to the BBB and get them put out of business!
Jiffy Lube is what it says it is, a place to get a lube and oil change quickly. Other than that, don't let them sucker you into working on other parts of your car. Not only will they overcharge you, but they aren't nearly as good as other smaller, cheaper places that do specific work on your car, also, Jiffy Lube can often mess up the job they work on, causing you to spend even more to get it fixed again. Go here for oil changes, and that's it.
This Pep Boys is located right near the corner of Artesia and Aviation. The service is always great, friendly, and speedy, and there is a plethora of items for your car that you can buy there in addition to getting work done. It is near gas stations, fast food, and other little food and shopping areas within walking distance, so if you're stuck there for a few hours with no car, it's a good place and time to get some food or some other shopping done. Great location and great service.
If you are Catholic and live in the area, American Martyrs School is a good place to send your children to. I personally went there for a while and the education level was very high. Some of the teachers can be harsh and tough, the overall school is great and you should definately check out this school.
I Tan is a good tanning spot for the SDSU area. While tanning is never a substitute for the beach, not to mention it being far less fun, this one gets the job done. The prices here and pretty much standard, but a good deal non the less. A good amount of machines and friendly and helpful staff. If you want a tanning salon to go to and want it near SDSU, look no further.
This coffee shop is a very very nice one. The environment is incredible, good parking and very friendly staff. The prices are great and food equally as good. This is a great spot for just hanging out, a nice date, or just to chill and read and get away from the city hustle and bustle. The atmosphere is incredible, check it out!
