Via Marina Sidewalk, Marina Del Rey, Los Angeles California

Description

On Via Marina, you can park in the metered parking and take a short walk along the marina. It's pretty! There's a sidewalk with a railing, and little lookout areas with benches and palms for shade. Kids enjoy watching the sailboats go by. There's nothing much around here except apartments and houses, but it's a nice place to stop for a break if you're driving from Santa Monica to the South Bay beach cities like Hermosa Beach or Redondo Beach.
If you have more time, continue your walk north on Pacific Avenue. A path takes you alongside a canal. Across the canal, the houses are so colorful and groovy, and my son likes to point out which one he'd like to live in if he were a millionaire! Just two blocks to the west, check out Venice Beach.
