"Nicer than Long Beach but not ideal"

San Pedro sits below Palos Verdes and north of Long Beach. It is a major port city in Los Angeles. The Port o Call area of San Pedro has some fun, touristy restaurants and shops, but other than that, there isn't much in the way of dining and nightlife. It's a cool place to go for the day if you're really into the shipping world. There is a large Maritime Museum and an Aquarium in San Pedro as well as the SS Lane Victory which is a National Landmark from WWII. And, all of the tourist shops are seafarer inclined.
The cool thing about the area is that it one was of the first California settlements dictated by the Spanish. It's roots of Spanish settlement date back to the 18th Century. And, to this day, San Pedro counts roughly half of its residents as having Spanish descent (the Latino population is immense in San Pedro). It's not as sketchy as many areas of Long Beach, but it's still not an area that I would consider to be safe. It's also not very pretty. Although there are some landmarks and Victorian homes in San Pedro, it is really industrial looking and a lot of it is run down. And, restaurants and nightlife? Forget it.
Pros
  • Historical
