Beyond the Ballona Marshlands, at the far western stretch of Culver Boulevard, is the gorgeous coastal enclave known as Playa Del Rey, California. Its name translates to “beach of the king,” and its history of perseverance is deserving of such a title. Playa was originally a swampy mouth of the Los Angeles River and a popular destination for European settlers seeking grazing land for their cattle. However, in 1820, a flash flood changed the course of the river, but Ballona Creek continued to flow through its previous course forming a lagoon that would later become a swimming plunge for the Hotel del Rey. Sadly, the hotel burned down in the 1920s, essentially ending the area’s resort trade, so Playa Del Rey pivoted and residential development boomed.
Today, this small beach community is a place of spectacular natural beauty with Ballona Creek to the north, Los Angeles International Airport to the south, and towering bluffs to the east. With an inviting laid-back vibe, it is an excellent place to sit on the dunes and soak up the sunset or watch the procession of sailboats arriving and departing from Marina del Rey. The community also encompasses many old-school restaurants and dives, abundant street parking, and points of interest that include the Pacific Ocean, the Del Rey Lagoon Park, and the Marvin Braude Bike Trail.
