The City of Rancho Palos Verdes (aka RPV) was the last of four cities to be incorporated into the area known as the Palos Verdes Peninsula, best known as Palos Verdes or to locals as PV. Offering some of the best city and ocean views in Los Angeles County, Rancho Palos Verdes is located roughly 22 miles South of downtown Los Angeles.
Although sandwiched in between the popular cities and attractions of Redondo Beach and San Pedro, Rancho Palos Verdes is somewhat of an intentional destination, and as such, doesn’t attract heavy tourist or incidental traffic. That is part of the charm of living on the Peninsula! Yes… it takes a little longer to get to the freeway, but its that “out-of-the-way” feature that creates the environment that is so dear and treasured by the residents living on the Peninsula.
Rancho Palos Verdes offers a variety of residential choices, starting with condos in the $600,000 range all the way up to private homes well over $10 million. The schools in Rancho Palos Verdes are part of the Palos Verdes Unified School District and have a reputation for being some of the best public schools in Los Angeles County.
