You will love California as much as I do, the food is great and the diversity here is awesome. I'm located in San Pedro, this is the most southern part of LA, approximately 23 miles to downtown LA. What I like about my location is how central it is. Downtown Long Beach is only 6.4 miles away, Venice Beach is 26 miles. There are also plenty of things to see and do in San Pedro.
San Pedro is one of the most historic and picturesque regions in Los Angeles. It has a unique blend of small-town charm, superb cultural attractions, eclectic shopping, America’s Port and a world class cruise center. Things to do:
The family-friendly Cabrillo Beach is one of the top beaches in Los Angeles. Located near Point Fermin Park, Cabrillo Beach has two separate areas. Inside the breakwater, the water is tranquil and calm, ideal for a relaxing picnic. Outside the breakwater, windsurfers and kayakers take on the ocean waves. The fishing pier is a favorite destination for whale-watching.
