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.

San Pedro Dining
There are dozens of restaurants at the Los Angeles Waterfront, offering a wide range of cuisines from around the world. Step inside Mishi’s, a Hungarian strudel bakery, and you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported to a café in Budapest. The friendly owners of Baramee Thai personally greet their patrons and serve an authentic menu in a beautiful setting. There’s much more than English pub food to enjoy at the Whale & Ale, which hosts a variety of live music nights and special events. And for great American fare, head to the San Pedro Brewing Company, which features its award-winning ales and offers free tours.
