Saturday Trip

A nearby shopping google search for incense brought me to The Marigold Mercantile in Marina Del Ray. I didn’t feel like driving. So, I Uber’ed from Burbank. The Marina Waterside Center and surrounding Marina Area made for a great few hours. I enjoyed the view. The sun was shining with plenty cool winds. Everything was completely picturesque. The people were very, very friendly. The restrooms at McDonald’s were closed. I ate lunch at CPK instead. And I have been here before, but to the beachside area. It’s about 1-1/2 to 2-miles away, but not an advisable walk or bike. I didn’t walk with swimwear... Maybe, I’ll go back home.

Great Insta scenery, but not much to do
Nov 2019
While the place is colorful and looks vibrant, there is not much (if anything) to see or do here. We got here before noon and the place was barely awakened. There are not many coffee shops or places to hand out and just chill. You can only go up and down the pier, eventually, hang out with the sunbathing seals, It was the only moving part of our visit. Although it is a good scenery for photos. While there, you can take a walk to Marina Bay, it is not too far and it's a pleasant walk

Fisherman's Village

Our uber driver dropped us off at Fisherman's village by accident. We thought that was where we needed to be for the New Years Eve events. There were only a few places open because of the holiday. There are a few restaurants along the pier and a few specialty shops. It was quiet and peaceful along the harbor.

Move on - nothing to see here
Oct 2019
We had assumed that this would be very like Shoreline Village in Long Beach - twee but pleasant for a stroll and a coffee and checking out the tacky tourist shops. Unfortunately when we went there it was desolate, nothing open, no people, empty carparks. I can only assume that it's pretty much closed down. There are obviously one or two companies operating out of here and one had some nice old charter boats; other than this - nada.

SAD AND WORN OUT
Oct 2019
This used to be such a lovely place to stroll or shop along the water in the Marina del Rey. Not anymore. Many of the shops are completely gone (evidently they had no business) and the ones that were open were truly dumpy and sad. The buildings need to be renovated and updated. The parking lot is another disaster. The spots are WAY too small for all cars except very, very small cars like a MiniCooper. When parking you really have to be careful, because trying to get back into your car is nearly impossible when another car parks next to yours. My husband had to back out so that I could get in and I know that the car that was on my right, banged into my door when he/ she got out! This place is a mess! Try the other side of the Marina, if you want clean and lovely. You will only leave this spot wondering why you came!

Not much there
Oct 2019
We had eaten at El Torito and was just walking around the area so we went to see what shops were in the village. There's hardly anything there and everything was closed at 8 pm on a Friday night. It was totally dead. The only people around were those eating at the restaurants.

Many restaurants, bay cruises, fishing opportunities, and shopping fun.

Plentiful parking, easy area to go biking.

Very cute

This is such a cute area! We rented some rickety cruiser bikes and rode along the path at Playa Del Rey, and then came back and listened to an awesome live outdoors Reggae band. People were dancing and it was a great time !

We loved our stop here, we saw Seals
Sep 2019
We had a late flight on the evening so I looked for somewhere to go before the airport and Marina Del Ray seemed like the perfect place.

We are so glad we stopped by, there was a mini music festival one when we arrived so the vile was really cool, we sat down with an ice cream and then decided to walk along the harbour.

This was a real highlight for us because we must have stood for at least an hour watching the seals play around in the water and hang around all the fisherman,, it was amazing to see and such a highlight of our LA visit.

If every we come back to LA, we have agreed that we would rather stay around here. It's a great place, we love it.
