    Visitors enjoy the year-round sunny weather and ocean breeze with waterfront dining, on-the-water recreation, and six contemporary hotels that line the water’s edge. What’s more? Its prime coastal location is just steps from its world-famous neighbors, Venice Beach and Santa Monica. And with easy access to major freeways (read: popular tourist attractions), Marina del Rey is minutes away from all the excitement of Los Angeles.

    With restaurants that hug the harbor, be ready to dine against a backdrop of open air, luxury yachts, and sparkling waters. Restaurants like Beachside, Café del Rey, and Whiskey Red’s offer expansive views of the Marina del Rey waterfront. Cast & Plow at the Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey serves farm-to- table cuisine on its outdoor terrace that sits directly across from yachts and a waterfront promenade. Marina del Rey is also the only place in Los Angeles to “Dock & Dine.” With the public dock at Killer Shrimp Restaurant, groups can paddleboard, kayak, or boat to their favorite meal (happy hour included). Want to dine on the water? Hornblower Cruises offers champagne brunch and dinner dance cruises weekly.

    Marina del Rey’s waterfront location offers unique activities that visitors can enjoy year-round. The 22-mile Marvin Braude Coastal Bike Path that stretches from Pacific Palisades to Torrance winds through the

    Marina, making it easy to hop on and enjoy the endless beach views. On-the-water activities like stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, jet skiing, and sailing keep the Marina waters active. Boat rentals are a fun way to enjoy the water, whether it’s a picnic lunch aboard a duffy boat or a high-speed power boat that breaks out onto the Pacific. Skippered boat charters are another relaxing way to see the coastline.

    A visit to Marina del Rey can take you to new heights (literally) with a parasailing excursion that soars high above the ocean for some of the best views of Los Angeles. City sightseening tours like Starline’s Hop-On, Hop-Off takes guests to Venice Beach, Santa Barbara and other LA attractions.

    Looking for an adventure closer to sea? Marina del Rey Sportfishing takes groups out on the Santa Monica Bay for a fishing excursion. Paddleboard yoga is another hot activity that’s making a splash across the Marina waters. Classes at YOGAqua are offered weekly and continue to grow.

    ready to make a splash in la’s premier waterfront destination? Go to visitmarinadelrey.com.
