Marina Del Rey boasts of having the world’s largest man-made small-craft harbor. Built in wetlands in 1960, the main channel is 18–24 feet deep, 1,000 feet wide, and one mile long. Up to 7,500 boats are tucked into row after row of docks.

It’s easy to feel lost when driving around the marina. You can’t rely on the shoreline for orientation because buildings often hide it from view, and the shoreline changes direction every few hundred yards. Just remember you can’t go too far wrong if you stay between Washington Street, Lincoln Boulevard, and Fiji Way.
