The marina itself houses about 5,000 boats and is the biggest man-made harbor in North America. Marina del Rey is known all over Los Angeles as the place to go for beautiful coastal parks, fashionable boutiques, tours, hiking and biking trails, and entertainment events.
What Can Families Do in Marina del Rey?
There’s fun to be had for mom, dad, and kids here. For a day of shopping, stroll over to the Waterside, an open-air mail, to enjoy upscale clothing stores, health food stores, restaurants, outdoor eating, services, and more.
