California Has A Proud Automotive History From Their Smaller Cities To The Big Dogs

Automobile giant, Toyota, operates out of its headquarters near Redondo Beach and other beaches in the Los Angeles area, but its significant local presence does not end there. Toyota maintains a 45,000 square foot museum adjacent to its headquarters.

Visitors to the museum will find the very first Toyota model sold in the United States – the Toyota Crown. Joining the ranks of the crown are the first Scion and Lexus models sold in the United States. You can also view Toyota, Scion and Lexus models dating from 1958 to the present day. Just be sure to call in advance, because access to the museum is by appointment only.

Redondo Beach and the other beaches surrounding Los Angeles have a strong automobile presence that extends beyond the Toyota headquarters and museum. No visit to California is complete without visiting the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles or the San Diego Automotive Museum if you love classic and exotic cars.
