Manhattan Beach A Painted Masterpiece

Blog, Community News, Manhattan Beach News
Manhattan Beach can now add another notch on its belt of distinctions after being named as one of the nation’s 12 most beautifully painted neighborhoods and towns by the Paint Quality Institute. This year’s “Prettiest Painted Places in America” contest honored Manhattan Beach, “a colorful coastal community near Los Angeles where the beautiful landscape is punctuated with artful, individualistic paint color.” The purpose of the competition is to give recognition to places that use paint to express pride in their communities and highlight how an attractive exterior paint treatment can enhance the curb appeal of virtually any home, building or exterior structure. Nearly 200 nominees from 48 states and the District of Columbia submitted color images of beautifully painted homes, buildings and exterior murals. Manhattan Beach and Tubac, Ariz., were chosen as the winners in the Southwest Region. The city will be rewarded with a nationwide publicity campaign with HGTV and USA Today.
