Hidden hot spots in San Pedro

San Pedro is one of the most exotic places in Los Angeles.
The Point Fermin Lighthouse was built in 1874, and it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

I met some local cats at the park, they seem to have a great life with the breeze.

This place has a gorgeous ocean view parkIt is a perfect place for either a romantic date or a birthday party.

Near by the Lighthouse, there is another beautiful park on the hill.

In 1976, the people of the Republic of Korea donated this huge bell to the people of Los Angeles for friendship  between the two countries .

It took 30 Korean craftsmen 10 months to construct this site. It had a cost of about $570,000. 

This place is up on a hill so you can look down to the ocean and all of the city of San Pedro.

My most favorite spot in San Pedro is White Point.

There is one of the most diverse tidepools in Southern California here.

It is an easy access beach and you can find the sea life everywhere.

I call this spot, "Crabby Beach".

This is also a Nature Preserve. If you come here one time you will now why this is a place we would want to protect for the future.

From the beach you can look up the cliff.

On the top of the cliff, there is a cute park and panoramic view of the Pacific.

On the way from the beach to the freeway, there is a traditional Hungarian Bakery.

From outside to inside, it is a totally East European style cafe and sells the best strudels (cabbage, Spinach, Beef, fruits, or chocolate ) in Los Angeles. 

Every first Thursday there is an Artwalk in old Downtown San Pedro, and Mishi's is featuring a variety of performers such as opera singers or theater actors for late night.
