Discover Los Angeles

Located on the southern end of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, San Pedro is one of the most historic and picturesque regions in Los Angeles. San Pedro is a unique blend of small-town charm, superb cultural attractions, eclectic shopping, America’s Port® and a world class cruise center.

The 1st Thursday Art Walk in downtown San Pedro features open galleries and a variety of food and entertainment options, beginning at 5 p.m. Art galleries, shops and restaurants are open until 9 p.m. Most of the participants are located on 4th St. to 7th St., and from Pacific Ave. to Palos Verdes St.

One of the best ways to discover the waterfront is by riding one of San Pedro's propane-powered trolleys, a free service that operates Thursday through Sunday. To download the trolley schedule, click here.

Like all great actors, Hollywood is constantly reinventing itself. At various times, it’s been known as the home of pioneering movie studios, the first Academy Awards ceremony, an Art Deco treasure trove, a punk rock stomping ground, a tourist T-shirt mecca, and an epicenter of nightlife. These restaurants, from as far back as 1919 to more recent openings, have helped to establish Hollywood as one of the hottest dining and drinking destinations in the city.
