Located on the west side of Los Angeles, Marina del Rey is a seaside town known for its harbour, numerous waterfront restaurants and cafes, and many cultural events throughout the year. Marina del Rey holidays often reflect the town's laid-back approach to life, where casual exploring, beachside walks and relaxing are part of the daily routine.
With warm weather year-round, Marina del Rey holidays can be enjoyed at any time, although its array of summer events makes this a popular season to visit. Marina del Rey is serviced by Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which is located 6 kilometres from downtown Marina del Rey and is a straightforward 15-minute drive away. Though visitors should be aware that traffic in the area can be very congested, it is recommended that visitors use a car for transport between Marina del Rey and other areas of Los Angeles. Once in the town, holidaymakers can drive, walk, bike or use public transport to get around. Alternatively, the Marina Waterbus is an inexpensive and unique way to visit several points of interest. Marina del Rey is in the Pacific Time Zone (GMT-8).
One of the highlights of Marina del Rey is naturally the beach, which is an excellent place for sunbathing, people-watching and bike riding. The colourful Venice Beach promenade is just a short walk away. Those keen to get out onto the water will find a range of options, from kayaking, parasailing and windsurfing to fishing, as well as a number of boat tours.
Nature lovers should visit Burton W. Chace Park, a 10-acre park with excellent ocean views and many walking trails, and free concerts during July and August. Elsewhere, the picturesque Fisherman's Village is a charming seaside area for the whole family. It also hosts free summer concerts and a variety of bars and clubs.
