IMG_1975

Palos Verdes Peninsula was inhabited for thousands of years by the Tongva-GabrieliƱo Native Americans and later visited by Portuguese explorer Juan Cabrillo in 1542. In modern times, the peninsula is home to the cities of Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills and Rolling Hills Estates. The hill that makes up the peninsula makes for stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles metropolis.

As we continue our look at our "staycation" in Palos Verdes, here are some pics of the view from above.
