Marina Del Rey

marina-del-rey

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 (6 km) north of Los Angeles International Airport.  Marina del Rey is bounded on all sides by the City of Los Angeles. The beach-style homes, the strip of land against the beach, and the beach itself, west of the harbor, are within the City of Los Angeles limits, with a Marina del Rey address. 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.  The marina itself, a specially designed harbor with moorings for pleasure craft and small boats, is surrounded by high-rise condos, hotels, apartments, shops, and restaurants. The area also includes the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute and the UCLA Marina Aquatic Center.  The community is served by the three-mile (5 km)-long Marina Freeway (State Route 90), which links Marina del Rey directly to Interstate 405 and nearby Culver City.  Marina del Rey is in area codes 310 and 424. Its ZIP code is 90292. (Source: Wikipedia)
