Around Marina Del Rey

The weather in Marina Del Rey is consistently temperate throughout the year and this neighborhood is significantly cleaner and quieter than the surrounding areas of Venice and Del Rey. The inner areas around Via Marina as well as those bordering the coastline boast luxury high-rise condominiums that, though still expensive, are more affordable than other beachside neighborhoods in Los Angeles. The demographic of this area has changed throughout the years and Marina Del Rey now hosts younger residents, families, and upper-class professionals.

Although many restaurants in the area veer towards the ritzy, it is well worth the price tag due to the wonderful waterfront views and the quality of food. There are several award-winning establishments that offer unique cuisines guaranteed to delight your taste buds. For a hip and contemporary dining experience, explore the restaurants on Admiralty Way, Fiji Way, and Maxella Avenue. Have a pleasant sit-down meal with friends and family or have your pick of creative pizzas, locally sourced seafood, fancy burgers, delectable pasta, or vegetarian options. Best of all, you can enjoy your meal outside with incredible sunset views.

Families enjoying a nice day out at the park, cyclists coasting along the bike path on Washington Boulevard, and surfers catching a wave at Mother's Beach. It is also common to see vacationers dressed comfortably and ready to tour the city. Food aficionados flock to the restaurants in the area in hopes of experiencing the latest twist on traditional dishes.

Head to Admiralty Way, Fiji Way, and Bali Way, where there are a number of happy hour spots to enjoy a cocktail while admiring the stars. Go to the beachfront along Washington Boulevard and enjoy the soothing sound of live music at a number of outdoor restaurants. Hop on a night cruise with that special someone and dance the night away along the shores.

If you're looking to spice up your Sunday, try parasailing or taking a cruise along the beach on Fiji Way. If you don't want to get your feet wet, visit the famous Burton Chace Park and have a picnic, grill on one of the open barbeques, or make some s'mores -- all while watching the yachts and sailboats drift along the pier. For those who are visiting from out of town, be sure to visit the J. Paul Getty Museum, popularly known as the Getty, which is a world-class art museum featuring beautiful paintings and breathtaking sculptures.

Marina Del Rey has everything you need (assuming you can afford it)

Sean K
It's not the cheapest neighborhood around but if you can afford to live in Marina Del Rey, it has a lot of benefits. Because of the density of apartment complexes and luxury homes, most things are within walking distance. You probably wouldn't have to leave the neighborhood if you didn't want to and you'd still have access to nice restaurants, shops, and retail. You also have lots of access to water, be it the marina or the Pacific Ocean. Ideal community for commuters looking for a peaceful place to come home to but still close enough to nightlife and weekend fun.
