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. Howard Hughes relocated his Hughes Tool Company to the Ballona Wetlands, where he also constructed Hughes Airport. Read our walking guide and get to know this city by the sea.
