Terms of Use

This site is provided as a means of providing information about visiting San Pedro, California, the surrounding Los Angeles Harbor and Palos Verdes Peninsula communities, and Catalina Island. It is operated by a non-profit organization (NGO) in general as a service to the communities and specifically as a service to Sponsors and Partners of Visit San Pedro, a brand of the Southern California Education, Tourism, and Cultural Organization.

The contents of the website are intended to encourage visitors and meetings to come to our area and to build the local and regional economy (and by extension, city, county, state, and federal economies) and to create jobs in the tourism and related fields for individuals.

While every effort is made to obtain and present information that is accurate, the information on this website comes from a variety of sources. We rely on the representations of those sources that the information they provide to us is accurate. From time to time, however, information that was once accurate will change. We have no control over the operations and decisions of the businesses and other organizations that are listed here, and therefore, we have no involvement in changes to events, dates, times, opening hours, inventory, or any other aspect of the operations listed here. Website users are encouraged to confirm listings, including specifics of calendar events, business locations, opening times, and inventory, menu item availability, available amenities, and anything else that may be relevant to a visitor. We have no liability over errors or ommissions in or changes to any information listed on this website or in any of our publications. 

We approach our work with joy for doing things that are positive for our communities and the individuals who live and work there. Any attempt to subvert the purposes of our website is viewed as damaging to our efforts.
