Those of us living in SoCal love our beaches and recently, “The SoCal Scene” host Melvin Robert visited one that has a rich history, even beyond the sand and surf.

Hermosa Beach has been a historic music destination since the 1950s, when many of the jazz greats performed there. Later, it was the hub of beach music and even the punk-rock scene.

Join Mel as we continue our Day Tripper series with a one-day stop that includes great food, shopping and activities you won’t want to miss.
