MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. — When the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup two years ago, the trophy’s first postgame trip was to a small bar near the beach, within walking distance of nearly every player’s home.
The July issue of GQ magazine has named Manhattan Beach “America’s Best Beach for Chowing Down.” The magazine also commended Manhattan Beach as one of the best beaches in the United States.
