Palm Beach Park - This little park overlooks the mud-flats at the estuary where the shorebirds gather. Metered parking is available. Off Golden Shore St.
Shoreline Aquatic Park - Just beyond the spot where the LA River widens into the harbor. There’s a lighthouse on a grassy hill, plus lots of meandering paths amid great vistas of the marina and surrounding area. Take a stroll starting at the Aquarium of the Pacific, go to the water, take a right and head along the water’s edge. Curve around the beachfront areas, aiming for the lighthouse. Take the path that spirals up the grassy hill to the lighthouse. Roll down the hill. Laugh. Eat. Lollygag. Return to starting point.
Aquarium of the Pacific - This world-class aquarium is a favorite destination for families. Parking, food and restrooms are available here.
Queen Mary - This famous ocean liner (and her neighboring Russian submarine) are open for tours of various kind. Kids love prowling around the corridors and decks. Parking, multiple dining options and restrooms are available.
