Do you love spicy food? If you are like me, I am always looking for that spicy something or other and Hot Licks is one place that really catered to my hot cravings. They sell hot sauces of every kind that I know of. The names on the bottles are really interesting and funny too like Blairs Sudden Death or Hot Licks Suicide Sauce
I got some good Hawaiian shirts at Granny Takes a Trip that I needed to buy for a Polynesian themed party that a friend of ours was throwing. They have a lot to choose from. Their prices were reasonable and the sales people were friendly and helpful. This store is located just a block from the beach and not at all hard to find.
I usually go to the Haircut Store for my haircuts. They do get kind of busy so I always try to go early in the morning on weekdays just when they open just to beat the crowds. Their prices are relatively inexpensive and Ive always been satisfied with the cuts Ive gotten from the stylists.
I sometimes go to Kims Barber Shop for a hair cut. They give okay haircuts as far as Im concerned. I wouldnt say spectacular though. My wife thought I got an uneven cut the last time I had a haircut here so I havent gone back since. But their haircuts are inexpensive though.
Ive only shopped at the Thomas International Home Furnishings a couple of times with my wife. They are located in a nice building on Hawthorne Blvd and have a parking lot available for their patrons. Their furniture look very nice and their show room has a good number of pieces however we have not found anything we were interested in purchasing there.
Giulianos Delicatessen and Bakery is located in a shopping area with plenty of parking. They have a large sign so they are hard to miss when youre driving down Hawthorne Blvd. The parking lot does get kind of busy though because of the popularity of that area. I like to order sandwiches from their deli because they make really good ones. Their Italian Torpedo with provolone cheese is my favorite.
The Long Beach Arena is a cool place to see a concert. They have a huge stage and the seats are awesome. The building is circular and outside of the building there is a huge mural of sea animals which is pretty impressive. I would definitely recommend people to watch concerts here.
It was a great experience touring the Queen Mary. Its a wonderful ship to explore because there is so much to see. I really enjoyed the Engine Room which was a treat to see. You also get to see a quarantine area and simulated hospital. They have guided tours available for extra bucks.
Catalina Express is the best way to get to Catalina Island if you are heading in that direction. The Catalina Express has a big boat to take you from San Pedro Berth 95 to Catalina Island for $49 round trip. Parking is available in the San Pedro Terminal for a flat rate. The only negative about it is that it does get crowded inside.
I would not go to the Redondo Fun Factory if you want to play arcades. Some of their arcade games do not work properly if at all. The place is kind of old looking too. They dont really have much to offer that will keep your interest for very long. I get more enjoyment walking on the pier there.
