Located within the South Bay region of Los Angeles County is Torrance city. The city was incorporated during the year 1921 and now currently has an estimated population of 150,000 individuals. The city of Torrance is the 35th largest within the state and the 8th biggest in the county. Even with it's beautiful, 1.5 mile shore front beaches bordering on the Pacific Ocean and the year round warm temperatures, Torrance is less visited by people as opposed to other parts of Southern California, such as Palos Verdes Estate and Redondo Beach. There is an average rainfall of 12.55 inches per year.

The city is mostly centered on residential and light high tech companies. Numerous automotive businesses have chosen Torrance as their headquarters. These include, but are not limited to, American Honda Motor Company, Honeywell's Garret Turbochargers, Toyota Motors Sales, Alpine Electronics, Speed Star Racing Wheels, Tanabe Racing Development, Koyo Radiators, Stoptech Brakes, Cosworth, and Edelbrock. Some businesses that have head office in Torrance are Globe, Sunrider International, Lakai, Tablet Kiost and Tecmo. Panasonic has a Blue-Ray and DVD-RAM media manufacturing plant in the city. King's Hawaiian, which promotes the leading brand of Hawaiian bread within North American, has its main baking facility situated in Torrance. Robinson Helicopters are built and designed within the city also.

Torrance is also a major player in the oil trade and offers the majority of Southern California's gasoline supply. In the past, the city was littered with thousands of derricks and oil wells but as the supply of oil gradually diminishes, the number of wells goes down as well. Within the north part of the city is the ExxonMobil refining facility. Before the Pacific Electric Railway closed down, Torrance was an essential hub and shop location of the train.

The city prides itself in combining the beauty of nature with the ideal metropolitan lifestyle. There are more than 90,000 street trees lining the roads and 30 parks situated all over the city.

Torrance was the birthplace of AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization) and is also the head office of Gracie Jiu Jitsu Academy.

Torrance has a busy general aviation airport called Zamperini Field. It was previously named the Torrance Airport but was renamed after Louis Zamperini, a former local track star and WWII hero. During the year 1974, it dealt with over 428,000 landings and take offs, but has ever since declined to a yearly average of 175,000 (around 473 each and every day). Among the major local problems of the city is the abatement of airport noise. Zamperini Field is the proud home of the Western Museum of Flight, that moved there during 2007.
