One of our favorite activities for giving our visitors a taste of “SoCal” life frequently takes us to Rancho Palos Verdes. The ocean vistas and coastal vegetation along the easy Point Vicente Beach Walk Trail deliver us to Nelson’s, a casual cliff-top eatery at Terranea Resort. It’s the perfect place to sit out on the oceanfront patio or lawn and sample a tasty menu of comfort food, microbrews and more.
On clear days we’ve seen ships, whales and even had a glimpse of Catalina Island! And, of course, they’re dog friendly with plenty of patio space!
