Historic Downtown

Historic Downtown San Pedro offers everything you’re looking for in a walkable neighborhood. Restaurants, cafes, coffee shops, wine bars, breweries, art galleries and boutique shops that gives you a welcoming hometown charm.

During the summer and fall, First Thursday Art Walk is a festive event in the evenings that happens each month, with art gallery openings, live entertainment and food trucks lining the streets. Click here for a map of the locations of these restaurants, art galleries and boutique shops. 

Within a couple blocks of your new home you’ll find coffee shops, restaurants and boutique stores, all with that small town atmosphere.

The Farmers Market is every Friday on 6th St.- all certified California grown! No need for the car, this is an easy walk.

Take a casual stroll along the brick building storefronts and tree-lined streets and and you’ll see why so many movie location scouts choose this beautiful area to film epic movies.

The Downtown Harbor and Town Square is our waterfront public plaza and open amphitheater that can be a quiet place to watch the ships roll in or a vibrant, happening spot for community events.

San Pedro Waterfront Arts District

Our thriving Waterfront Arts District offers so much in the artistic world; Art galleries, murals, live entertainment and performing arts at the Grand Annex and the beautifully restored Warner Grand Theatre.

Grab a blanket and a picnic basket and catch “Shakespeare By The Sea” at Point Fermin Park, or do the dinner/theater package at the Little Fish Theatre

There’s nothing like experiencing a performance at the epic Warner Grand Theatre, a beautifully restored 1931 art deco movie palace now used for the performing arts. 

Art Gallery in San Pedro, CA

Discussing our arts culture in San Pedro wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Misty Copeland, our local celebrity and one of the top ballerinas in the world. Misty is now a principal dancer with the prestigious American Ballet Theatre.

Misty’s story is amazing and an inspiration to all.

Home By The Sea

Your outdoors just got a whole lot bigger. If you’re looking for a new home in Los Angeles and you want plenty of elbow room, then San Pedro is the place to be. Explore hundreds of acres of nearby nature reserves, sail or windsurf on San Pedro Bay, or enjoy a picnic at the beautiful parks on top of the ocean bluffs. 

So many notable businesses call San Pedro home, but you wouldn’t know it just passing through. Blue Tech is a now big part of our town with the AltaSea campus. San Pedro is also becoming LA’s Silicon Harbor

You don’t have to be a yachtsman to enjoy the Cabrillo Way Marina. Tree-lined bike paths run all around the marina and there are lots of benches making this a great place to kick back and enjoy the day.

A favorite place to dine or just chill with a drink is at the 22nd St.Landing Seafood Grill & Bar while watching the sun setting over the marina.

The upcoming West Harbor is one of the many exciting new additions coming to our community.

This massive re-vitalization will transform our boardwalk into a world-class waterfront destination of shops, cafes, dining, and entertainment. Construction is already underway!

Already underway, AltaSea will be the largest marine research facility in the world. They hold events and tours throughout the year and currently houses Boeing’s unmanned submarines, Catalina Sea Ranch and is home to one of the Space X autonomous drone ships.

Always cool to watch the drone ship return with a recovered rocket, or GO Ms. Tree, the world’s largest catchers mitt heading out to catch a rocket nose cone.

Buying a new home In San Pedro gives you the lifestyle you're looking for. On the waterfront and by the sea.

San Pedro is also the winter home to modern day ocean explorer Dr. Robert Ballard and his exploratory vessel the Nautilus (E/V Nautilus). Remember the Titanic? He’s the one who found it.

Scoping out the Googly-eyed Stubby Squid shows us how much fun following the E/V Nautilus can be!

Meet some of our neighbors and see why you’ll love living in the San Pedro Waterfront Arts District!
