We're just a week away from celebrating our nation's birthday – and one of the biggest beach days of the year.

It may feel like a new nation for some after this most interesting week in Washington, D.C. Maybe you'll agree that we've just "made our union a little more perfect."

Back here in local real estate in Manhattan Beach, this past week saw an oh-so-temporary bulge in inventory, with a crest at 73 active listings. We're back down again as of Saturday, as multiple new deals have posted. There are several new options again this weekend, though.

One of the unofficial "kickoffs" to Summer in Manhattan Beach is the MB5K at the pier.

MB Confidential has happily sponsored the race for a few years now, recognizing it as a quintessential part of MB life and what makes this town special.

This year's race was Saturday morning, and we saw several readers & clients at the race. Bravo to all who made it out!

As to real estate, there's an informal rule that Summer's start is also the beginning of the end of new inventory for a while. Unlike some markets, we tend to have quiet Summers in Manhattan Beach.

That's not the case yet, though. It's the opposite. There were literally 14 must-see new listings on our list Friday and we could not get to all of them.

See the highlights below. Take note that some…

The big local private school wrapped up this past week, and public schools are on autopilot now, with dismissal just days away. You can already hear the teachers and kids singing to themselves, "School's Out For Summer."

For many MB families, this will be the last weekend in town for a while. If you're off, we'll say bon voyage, and keep in touch online.

Looking to get into MB? There are about 10 weeks till school starts again. (Don't tell the kids it's so soon.) That home search is heating up along with the afternoons.

Today's the day when Manhattan Beach becomes so darned bike-friendly that they just about shut down the downtown area. 

For the 54th time, MB is hosting the MB Grand Prix series of bike races. There are literally races for just about every age group to be featured throughout the day, although the high-speed races draw the most attention. (It's still not too late to set the kids up to make a run in the later afternoon.)

Why not pop out and enjoy the spectacle? For more, see mbgp.com.

Of course, the afternoon is also time to go see open houses.
