“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
White sails and blue waters gleam on sunny days in Marina del Rey. Sailing trips leave from the Marina almost constantly, offering sparkling views of L.A.'s landscape as well as an experience of the choppy Pacific. If you prefer the view from solid ground, Marina del Rey has several restaurants overlooking the docks. Water taxis will take you around the marina for a small fee. Between the marina and the Pacific, the Ballona Creek stretches from the marina to the Venice Canals and is a prime spot for viewing birds.
