"I've been blessed. It's a very special place," said Melissa Clinton, a 20-year resident of Manhattan Beach. "I adore the city. We moved for the school and I have to say the schools have delivered."

"One of the wonderful things about Manhattan Beach is the walkability to our downtown area. We have lovely specialty boutiques, we have fantastic restaurants, something for everyone," said Lee Hoven-Bakos. "We're very, very lucky to have this tight knit little community supporting."
