San Pedro is a great place to visit, whether it's for recreation, leisure, or adventure, business, or a reunion.
We're Los Angeles' seaside town and we've got history, culture, great nature and outdoor activities, outstanding dining, and an international flair.
San Pedro is both convenient and affordable. Located 22 miles south of downtown Los Angeles and host to the Port of Los Angeles, the world is nearby
We're about 14 miles from Long Beach Airport (LGB) and about 20 miles from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The World Cruise Terminal at the Port of Los Angeles offers voyages throughout the world. More than 600,000 passengers embark and disembark from ships in the Port of Los Angeles every year.
Our rich history, vintage architecture, established natural and created attractions, a generally temperate climate and many other attributes make San Pedro an ideal visitor destination.
And it's an attractive venue for reunions and meetings.
We've got some 850 quality hotel rooms available, including the Crowne Plaza Los Angeles Harbor, Doubletree Hotel, and San Pedro Hotel & Suites. For an ultra-luxurious spa experience, Terranea Resort is located close by on the Palos Verdes Peninsula overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
San Pedro is now home to the USS Iowa, the only battleship on the West Coast, and a major tourist attraction. San Pedro is also convenient to the attractions that have made Southern California famous. Hollywood and the Dolby (formerly Kodak) Theatre are within half an hour. Universal Studios is about 45 minutes away. Other popular beach cities in the South Bay are within about half an hour. Sports, entertainment, shopping. They’re all part of the San Pedro experience. In fact, with its location convenient to the region’s extensive freeway and metropolitan transit systems, visitors will find San Pedro is connected—and connections are generally easy.
San Pedro’s proximity to both Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Long Beach Airport (LGB) make its airport to destination transportation costs quite attractive, as shown in the following chart.
And we're proud that San Pedro is consistently rated as one of the safest areas within the City of Los Angeles. Its downtown area is particularly safe, with three safety forces, the Los Angeles Police Department, Los Angeles Port Police, and Business Improvement District Security, protecting it.
