El Segundo is a tale of two cities. The residential neighborhood bordered by Imperial Highway to the north, Sepulveda Boulevard to the east, El Segundo Boulevard to the south, and the ocean to the west, has a rural feeling to it, with a very home town "Mayberry" quality. The neighborhood has many tree lined streets and feels far removed from the LAX airport immediately north, the commercial and industrial part of the city east of Sepulveda Boulvard, and the Chevron refinery to the south of El Segundo Boulevard and east of Sepulveda Boulevard. El Segundo has an interesting history.
