Marina del Rey Review

Just south of Venice, this condo-laden, chain restaurant–lined development is a good place to grab brunch (but watch for price gougers), take a stroll or ride bikes along the waterfront. A number of places, such as Hornblower Cruises and Events (13755 Fiji Way 888/467–6256 www.hornblower.com) in Fisherman's Village, rent boats for romantic dinner or party cruises around the marina. There are a few man-made beaches, but you're better off hitting the larger (and cleaner) beaches up the coast.

    Marina del Rey is all about the water

    I like Marina del Rey because it's one of the few places in L.A. where you can actually get out on the water. This Fodors review sounds 15 years old. You can rent your own boats, sail up the coast past Venice and Santa Monica, go on an easy to arrange fishing trip, and there are fun jazz cruises, sunset sails, Sunday brunch cruises and dinner dancing cruises. Ballona Wetlands has organized birdwatching tours, and the community has one of the best Visitor Information Centers in the area for free information and brochures.
    Marina del Rey is also famous for its waterfront restaurants and some of the best weekend brunch menus in L.A.and a lot of the restaurants have outdoor dining all year long. Where else do you get that and a perfect sunset?
