A ticket to the tour gives its holder a complimentary visit to the rooftop of the Bank of Manhattan in downtown Manhattan Beach, where a rooftop tasting of snacks and beverages, including wine, is available for purchase until 4 p.m. The 800-square-foot ocean view deck is sure to set the stage for some holiday fun.
Tour homes are at 1134 19th St., Hermosa Beach, 112 20th St., MB, a Walk Street, and 822 John St. A free shuttle service is provided as parking is at a premium and difficult to locate in most of these areas.The complimentary shuttle runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, leaving from home locations approximately 15 minutes apart.
Tickets, $30 per person, for the tour are available at the homes, a free public cafe and boutique at the Neptunian Woman's Club, 920 Highland Ave., and select businesses listed in the attached PDF. This year's tour covers three homes, two in MB and one just over the border in Hermosa Beach.
Sandpipers requests that you wear flat shoes only and do not bring any large purses or bags. Visitors are also asked not to take any photos or use their cell phones inside the homes.
The public is invited to attend the cafe and holiday boutique, featuring local artisans and vendors, at the Neptunian Woman’s Club. The boutique and cafe will offer shopping and refreshments for purchase.
