The City Of Marina Del Rey
Marina Del Rey is a seaside unincorporated area in Los Angeles County, California. Its Fisherman's Village offers a view of Marina del Rey's dominant feature as it is the world's largest man-made small craft harbor, with 19 marinas with capacity for 5,300 boats and is home port to approximately 6500 boats. The harbor, the Los Angeles Times said in 1997, is "perhaps the county's most valuable resource".
Marina Del Rey is southeast of Venice and north of Playa Del Rey, near the mouth of the Ballona Creek. It is located four miles north of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). It is bounded on all sides by the City of Los Angeles. The beach-style homes, a strip of land against the beach, and the beach itself, west of the harbor, are within the City of Los Angeles limits, but share the same zip code as Marina del Rey. The name of this strip is the Marina Peninsula. Via Dolce and the southern portion of Via Marina are the boundaries between L.A. City and the unincorporated area. Continued...
