San Pedro has a long history as the hub of economic activity for the city of Los Angeles housing the Port of Los Angeles, the premier gateway for international commerce which encompasses 7500 acres of land and water along 43 miles of waterfront connecting to Long Beach. It features 27 passenger and cargo terminals, including automobile, dry and liquid bulk, multi-use and warehouse facilities that handle bills of dollars’ worth of cargo each year. The San Pedro Port has tremendous impact on LA’s economy generating nearly 1 million jobs in California alone, related to trade through the Port of Los Angeles.
San Pedro’s Port of Los Angeles houses the World Cruise Center, the very quaint fisherman’s village of Ports O’Call, the iconic Vincent Thomas Bridge, Historic Angels Gate Lighthouse and open green space at 22nd Street and Wilmington Waterfront parks. The port also is home to two historic U.S. warships open to the public: Battleship IOWA and SS Lane Victory Merchant Marine Museum and Memorial. Recently the WWII era warehouses have been transformed into Crafted at the Port, a new craft marketplace featuring local artists, designers and eateries.
Many wonderful and diverse neighborhoods make up the San Pedro Peninsula which include South Shores, Palisades, Point Fermin, Vista del Oro, Plaza, Miraleste Pines, Holy Trinity and Barton Hill. Real Estate consists of quaint single family homes, condos, townhomes, multi-family dwellings.
