Port of Los Angeles' Resident Duck

Didn't get to see the World's Largest Rubber Duck during the Tall Ships Festival? Or maybe you can't get enough of the duck?

Not to worry! He (or she) is going to stick around the Port of Los Angeles for two weeks after the end of the festival. And here's the schedule.

Note: Because of heavy winds, the Duck's visit to Wilmington was cut short. Therefore, the duck will return to Wilmington for an extra day on Sunday, September 7.

We're a Beach Town

San Pedro has two outstanding beaches, each with its own natural features and character.

Plus we're close to miles and miles of other great beaches, surfing, watersports, and much more.

Cabrillo Beach has a long expanse of calm, sandy shoreline, protected by the Los Angeles Harbor breakwater. But move just outside the breakwater and you’ll find open waters that are renowned for their great windsurfing and other water sports. This area is known as Hurricane Gulch because of its strong (but not really hurricane strength) winds.

Where to Stay

San Pedro and the Palos Verdes Peninsula offer a range of hotels, motels, and even a hostel. You'll find the right place to fit your lifestyle and budget.

And the properties in San Pedro provide great value and special offers.

Coming for a cruise from the Los Angeles World Port? Stay for a night--or several--before your cruise at the Crowne Plaza or DoubleTree by Hilton and take advantage of their park and cruise offers.

The featured properties below get our recommendation. You're sure to find your special place.
