All About the Port of Los Angeles

The Port of Los Angeles is located in the San Pedro Bay, in the San Pedro neighborhood of Los Angeles, approximately 20 miles south of downtown. People have been using the bay since 1542, but wasn't until 1912 that the first major wharf was completed. It soon became the world's busiest seaport. In the 1930's, a massive expansion of the port was completed. During World War II, the port was used for ship building and employed more than 90, 000 people. After the war, the port shifted to container shipment. The L.A. Waterfront has a number of great attractions including the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, Ports O' Call Village, the museum Battleship IOWA from WWII, whale watching tours, the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, as well as the beautiful Cabrillo Beach for swimming, boating and fishing. With so many parks, museums, historical landmarks, art galleries, shops and restaurants, the Port of Los Angeles is a wonderful place for the whole family to visit.
