Palos Verdes Estates was incorporated in 1939 and is the oldest residential community on the Peninsula. The Palos Verdes Peninsula contains four cities: Palos Verdes Estates, Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes. Santa Monica Bay and the city of Redondo Beach are located to the north. To the south lies the city of San Pedro as well as both Long Beach and Los Angeles Harbors. The city of Torrance lies to the northeast.
Students in the area are served by the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District, one of the most respected in the state. District schools consistently score in the 90th percentile on advanced placement tests and often lead the way in National Merit Scholarship semi-finalists. More than 90% of the high school graduates pursue higher education. The high school, both intermediate schools and four elementary schools are State Distinguished Schools.
For outdoor enthusiasts, the area offers everything from golf and tennis to surfing and hang-gliding. The Peninsula offers a landscape that is inspiring to both artists and poets. In the fall, residents can view gray whales as they migrate from Alaska to the warm gulf waters of Mexico.
Marvelous restaurants, sophisticated nightlife, vast and varied recreational opportunities, eclectic architecture, diverse cultural offerings, and easygoing attitudes are blended in a region flooded with sunshine and lined with palm trees. World-class shopping is offered at "The Avenues" of the Peninsula.
