San Pedro

About San Pedro

Los Angeles is well known for its beachfront communities in Venice and Santa Monica, but not many are familiar with coastal San Pedro. Located on the southern end of Interstate 110 freeway, San Pedro is known for its diverse population, close-knit community, and beautiful ocean vistas. Gaffey Street serves as the primary road through San Pedro, connecting the city's north and south ends all the way to the blue waters of the Pacific. Hilltop homes and easy access to Long Beach make San Pedro a great place for those looking for the feel of a small town in the heart of Los Angeles.

Around San Pedro

Most of San Pedro's homes are located west of the interstate. The farther you travel along 1st street, the more single-family homes you'll encounter. Many are built in the popular California Ranch-style, with single-story floor plans and large yards. As you travel west, a sharp incline takes you higher and higher, providing properties with views of the Los Angeles Harbor and Catalina Island.

San Pedro's culinary scene is as dynamic as its population. Many of the community's restaurants reflect the history and traditions of its residents and there is no shortage of excellent options for both casual and fine dining. Since the Los Angeles Harbor is only blocks away, San Pedro gets plenty of fresh seafood straight from the ocean. Lining Gaffey Street are a wide selection of casual breakfast innumerable bars to watch a game and grab a world-class burger, all in an atmosphere a little more casual when compared to other parts of Los Angeles.

Due to the wide range of people living in San Pedro, there is never any shortage of new and exciting things to see. Much of the community is centered around the Los Angeles Harbor and the ocean, so expect a laid back, friendly community of residents. It's not unusual for generations of families to live in San Pedro, providing the neighborhood with a distinct small-town feel.

Situated a short drive across the Vincent Thomas Bridge is Long Beach and its waterfront plaza, The Pike. It's not unusual for residents of San Pedro to take an excursion into Long Beach in order to enjoy its bars and restaurants. For those who decide to stay within the neighborhood, the legendary cruise liner the Queen Mary is docked nearby. Complete with several bars, a working hotel and an upscale restaurant, the Queen Mary is excellent for those looking to try something different on date night or with friends. Godmother's Saloon, a historic pub on San Pedro's eastside, is a favorite among locals. Upscale cocktail lounges, wine shops, and sports pubs are located on South Centre and 6th Streets.

Apart from being a great place to spend an evening, the Queen Mary also provides tours to interested parties during the day. There is even a decommissioned Soviet submarine docked next the Queen Mary, and is great fun for people of all ages.
