City GuideEl Segundo

Left my wallet in El Segundo / Left my wallet in El Segundo / Left my wallet in El Segundo / I gotta get, I got-got ta get it - From "I Left My Wallet in El Segundo" by A Tribe Called Quest

El Segundo is a coastal city in Los Angeles County. Its 16,654 residents enjoy a prime spot just south of LAX airport, north of Manhattan Beach and east of the Pacific Ocean. So if it's an amazing location and proximity to the beach you're looking for -- and who isn't? -- it's time to start searching for rental properties in El Segundo.

Having trouble with Craigslist El Segundo? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

Searching for a Home in El Segundo

If you need a place anytime soon, you should start your quest for housing in El Segundo right away. Its very low vacancy rate means you can expect some competition, whether you need a large home for rent or are focusing your search on cozy studio apartments.

What are the approximate housing costs in this city?

You'd better start saving up if you want to live in El Segundo, because the prices for homes here are higher than usual -- but that's just the cost of living on the beach! Still, the median cost to buy a home is almost double the average of California and quadruple the national average. If you are looking for houses, apartments or condos for rent, you won't need quite as much money, since the median rent is just a little higher than the average for California.

What should you bring when you look for a home here?

Due to the very low vacancy rate, you should bring your checkbook and proof of income if you plan to snap up a home here. If you take too long to qualify for the home you want, you risk losing it to yet another person who would love to live in a coastal California city. So put on your competitive face and get ready to fight for the first one-bedroom apartment you fall in love with in El Segundo.

Neighborhoods in El Segundo

Before you make your move to this city, make sure you know which neighborhood you want to live in. The communities here range from mostly industrial or urban to rural, so there is basically something for everyone.

Smoky Hollow: This neighborhood runs along East El Segundo Boulevard and is packed with businesses and apartments. So if you like living just steps away from necessities like Vinny's Pizza and Hanabi Japanese Grill, this may be the ideal area for you to settle down in.

City Center: This is another urban neighborhood where residential and commercial districts collide in El Segundo. You will find a higher percentage of apartments for rent than single-family houses here. Not surprisingly, you will also have fast access to plenty of restaurants, such as Second City Bistro, Andiamo Pizza and Rock & Brews.

Center Street and East Imperial Avenue: Here you will find lots of single-family homes, so if you are looking for a spacious place to live with a yard, you can find it in this area. But there are some apartment complexes to choose from, too. When you live in this area, you will be conveniently close to the Pacific Coast Highway, so get ready for some amazing scenery when you need to go north and south in this city. At the same time, you'll also be close to Interstate 105, which goes east and west and is decidedly faster to travel on than the slow but picturesque Pacific Coast Highway.

West Imperial Highway and Main Street: The number of apartment complexes in this area is about equal to the number of single-family homes here, and the majority of the properties were built before 1999. This is where you will find lots of affordable housing and plenty to do. Just a few examples of what's here include Hank's Pizza, Sapori Di Roma and Richmond Street Field. There's also Library Park, which is close to - you guessed it - the El Segundo Public Library.

Living in El Segundo

So now you know which neighborhoods are available in this city. If you're satisfied with what you've heard about the housing here so far, it's time to discover what local residents do in their free time.

First, you need to know how the locals get around town. Just as in most California cities, they usually drive, typically on freeways like the Pacific Coast Highway and Interstate 105. But there are also a few public transportation options, like the Amtrak, which you can catch at the Douglas Green Line Station. And of course, if you live in one of the conveniently urban neighborhoods in this city, you can try walking around or even riding a bike to local stores and eateries. Hey, some people do it!

If you're wondering which parts of the city are even worth traveling to, whether by Amtrak, car or foot, start with the downtown area. Along Grand and Main Street, there are several local shops and places to eat. If you want major chain stores, this is not the place to go! For those, you'll have to check out Plaza El Segundo, or you can also travel to Manhattan Village in Manhattan Beach. Basically, there's lots of shopping to be done in and around this city!

El Segundo is also home to many parks, so whether you want to spend a day outside having a picnic or need a place to walk your dog, you'll be happy here. Clutter's Park is perfect for watching planes take off and land at LAX, while Constitution Park has lots of open space that are ideal for a picnic or a walk.

Of course, like any good coastal California city, El Segundo has a beach. It's fairly small as beaches go, but it's quiet and has bonfire pits, so you can't beat that. You can also visit other patches of sand nearby, such as Dockweiler State Beach and Manhattan Beach. Either way, you can rest assured you're just minutes away from some sand, water and amazing Southern California weather, so El Segundo is a great place to begin your search for rentals!
