San Pedro, CA Maps for Travel Planning and Vacations
San Pedro is a community and district within the City of Los Angeles. It is
an ocean-front region surrounded by Rancho Palos Verdes, Long Beach and
Wilmington. 110 Harbor Freeway connects directly to the city. In fact, the
freeway actually ends its southern terminus there.
It is one of the most lucrative revenue generators for the City of Los
Angeles because of the Port of Los Angeles located there. The port is one of
the nation's busiest commercial ports, and includes a cruise line facility
for around-the-globe luxury and affordable cruises. While other
portions of the City of Los Angeles extend to the beach in unincorporated
areas such as Marina del Rey and Venice, San Pedro contains much of the
city's military and nautical history as a deepwater port and military
facility serving several wars in which the United States has experienced
threats of enemy of attack. San Pedro is well worth a visit during
trips to or around Los Angeles to see its highlights.
