Tucked along the Pacific Coast, just south of Venice Beach, Marina del Rey is the perfect SoCal setting for a waterfront stroll or bike ride. The scenic marina is dotted with small yachts and watercraft. Inspired to hit the open seas? Visit Fisherman's Village, designed to resemble a New England seaport, where it's possible organize sunset and dinner cruises around the harbor. Landlubbers will enjoy a stroll in Burton Chase Park, home to the marina's best vistas.
