A Walking Tour of Marina del Rey


Esther Tseng

With over 5,300 small boat slips, Marina del Rey is the largest man-made marina in the United States. Originally built in 1887 only to be destroyed by a storm that also put developer M.C. Wicks into bankruptcy, the Marina again underwent construction in the 1950s, creating the picturesque harbor and community of Marina del Rey. Eventually, oil rigs were replaced by volleyball nets, bungalows, lifeguard stands, and surf and bike shops.
