San Pedro is a picture-perfect waterfront town in Los Angeles that is known for its small-town vibe, and is perfect for those who would rather avoid the big city’s bustling tourism. Although it’s small, this beach town offers a range of diversity and culture that’s hard to find anywhere else.
Top attractions include the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, the state’s largest of its kind, the Battleship Iowa Museum, which houses historic battleships like the USS Iowa and the fully operational World War II ship, the SS Lane Victory. For great views, visit the Vincent Thomas Bridge, California’s fourth longest suspension bridge that connects San Pedro to Terminal Island, as well as Point Fermin Lighthouse, a museum and park built in a Victorian home overlooking the ocean. For a little piece of history, visit the Korean Bell of Friendship, a massive bronze bell that South Korea gifted to Los Angeles as a symbol of friendship. If you’re looking to take a dip in the Pacific, visit Royal Palms Beach Park, which also features tide pools that offer glimpses of sea life.
The best place to stay is Historic Downtown San Pedro, an urban center just steps away from the waterfront, where locals and visitors come together to experience culture, art, and good food.
The best time to visit San Pedro is from May to October. You'll be able to relax on quiet beaches while the majority of tourists flock to downtown LA instead.
The best place to eat in San Pedro is the San Pedro Fish Market and Restaurant, a busy waterfront spot that is famous for its shrimp tray and on-site fish counter. If you’re not a seafood lover, check out J. Trani’s Ristorante, a romantic Italian spot with a brick wall dining room and friendly staff. For a quick bite, visit The Whale & Ale, an English pub that offers fish ‘n’ chips and frequent live music. If simply can't decide what to eat, visit Neil’s Pasta & Seafood Grill, a homey Italian restaurant that specializes in hearty seafood and pasta plates.
Book your trip around the first Thursday of any month to participate in San Pedro’s monthly “First Thursday” art walk on 6th and 7th Streets, where you’ll be able to see artists at work, and grab a bite from a variety of gourmet food trucks.
