Overlooking the bustling the Port of Los Angeles, the largest working port in the nation, this authentic New England-style seaside village encompasses 15 acres of shops, restaurants and attractions. A meandering promenade of cobblestone streets connects the specialty shops. The shops feature items and gifts from around the world. Enjoy a relaxing lunch or dinner at one of the many restaurants overlooking the harbor. You'll find good seafood here, most of it inexpensived and heaped hot onto plates, as well as fresh fish stacked on beds of ice at the markets. Don't hesitate to wave to the passing ships, so close that they dwarf the village.
Open daily. Free admission and parking.
