Marina del Rey boat harbor

Marina del Rey is a census-designated place and seaside town located in an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County, California. As of the 2000 census, the CDP had a total population of 8,176.

The Fisherman's Village offers a good view of Marina del Rey's dominant feature, the largest man-made small boat harbor in the world with about 7000 pleasure boats and yachts. The marina is surrounded by many hotels, apartments, shops, and restaurants, as well as the USC Information Sciences Institute and ICANN, currently the closest thing the Internet has to a governing organization. There are also a large number of shopping centers lining the Pacific Coast Highway just to the east.

It is served by its own freeway, the 3-mile-long Marina Freeway (Highway 90) which links Marina del Rey directly to Interstate 405 and nearby Culver City. However, because the freeway ends at Highway 1 (Lincoln Blvd.) and does not go directly to the marina, the entire area has a reputation for traffic congestion. Caltrans has been working on a plan to extend the freeway, but the project is currently on hold for lack of funding.

Marina del Rey lies in area code 310. Its ZIP Code is 90292.
