San-Pedro dates back to the year 1542, and is located just south of Los Angeles. This city has breathtaking views of the ocean from its location atop the cliffs and bluffs of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. With one of the busiest ports on the West Coast, San Padro is also home to the state's largest privately owned diving and fishing fleets. You can take half day or full day sport fishing, scuba/snorkeling or charter boat trips. Regular whale watching excursions are also available during the season. There is a very nice walking path along the harbor available for those who wish to hike, jog, or stroll along the oceanfront. There is an abundance of things to see and do in the area, starting with Cabrillo Beach. This mile-long beach is perfect for swimming, surfing, scuba diving and volleyball. You can rent a jet ski or go wind surfing, or fish off the pier. Picnic tables, a snack bar and a children's playground is available on the beach. Other places to visit in San Pedro include the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, the Maritime Museum, the Point Fermin Lighthouse, the Angels Gate Lighthouse and Recreation Center, and Bogdanovich Park. San Pedro is known for their restaurants, featuring foods from all over the world. Many restaurants and coffeehouses offer outdoor dining and spectacular views. Last, but not least, San Pedro is an easy drive to all the other well-known southern California attractions, making this town a wonderful base for your southern California vacation.

San Pedro Weather & Climate

Southern California along the Pacific Coast enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate with over 300 days of sunshine per year. As with most of the state of California, summers are dry due to a semi-permanent high pressure system that sits in the Pacific Ocean and holds storm tracks well to the north. Warm air moving over the cool ocean in summer creates fog that moves in during the evening and early morning hours but almost always dissipates by midday. The rainy season is November through early April, but this area receives only approximately 12 inches of precipitation per year. Some flash flooding can occur when large amounts of rain occur in winter over a period of one or two days, and in summertime, very dry conditions in the higher elevations means forest fires are always a threat.
