My brother and I will be visiting El Segundo in October and I was wondering if there were any nearby attractions? How far is it from downtown or other tourist areas in LA, and how is the beach? I've read a couple reviews that were not favorable of the beach, but they were all 3 years old- has anything changed? We will be staying at Homwoodsuites, it does not have a pool and I was wondering also how close to the beach it is?
Thank you very much
