If you have ever been to southern California, you know how picturesque the entire region is. Bell, CA is certainly no exception! This city is located nearly twenty miles from the center of Los Angeles County. Like most cities in Cali, the weather here is warm, sunny and gorgeous almost every day of the year.
Not only is Bell just a short car ride away from Los Angeles, but it's also only an hour away from Manhattan Beach. Because of its small size, Bell is actually an incorporated city, which essentially gives it more autonomy than an unincorporated city.
This beautiful, quiet town near the ocean has plenty to offer you and your pup. If you like to exercise with your pooch by your side, strap on your phone arm band and go for a run on the beautiful flower-lined sidewalks in Bell. If you're more a city slicker, head to one of the many large muttropolitan areas around Bell, which are full of restaurants and dog-friendly parks.
Nature more your speed? Although Bell does not have any nature preserves or trails within its city limits, it is close to many of SoCal's nature attractions. A short drive can take you to the ocean, mountains, desert or even forest. Just be sure to take a camera to snap some adorable photos of your pooch!
If you live in Bell, you are pretty lucky -- located just south of your beautiful city is the neighborhood of Hollydale. Hollydale is home to Hollydale Recreational Park. Often referred to as a hidden gem, this gigantic park has something for everyone. It is perfect if you want to spend a relaxing day in the sun with your pup, or if you want to watch your little ones play football while you relax in the grass. The park also has a small dog park where your pooch can run and play without a leash. Just make sure you take your own doggie poop bags!
