Playa-Del-Rey is a seaside town just 5 minutes from Los Angeles Airport and the name means "the last stop before the Pacific." It is surrounded by WetLands and the Pacific Ocean, and is adjacent to the better known cities of Marina Del Rey and Venice Beach. In fact, you can walk the pedestrian bridge over a river channel that connects Playa Del Rey to its "sister cities." Playa Del Rey is just as beautiful as these more famous towns, but is more affordable and a less crowded version. The town dead-ends into a lagoon near the ocean, and runs along bluffs that overlook the ocean. You can walk to the beach, wander through town exploring the restaurants, cafes and specialty shops, or enjoy a picnic at one of the tables by the lagoon. For recreation, there is a path that runs along the shore where you can hike, bike, jog, or skate. And, the beach offers plenty of space for sunbathing, swimming, volleyball, flying kites or sandcastle building. Playa Del Rey is just 15 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, and just a few miles from the beaches and towns of Santa Monica, Malibu and Huntington Beach. Playa Del Rey is a great place to visit and is so centrally located to other southern California attractions, yet locals believe they are one of the "best kept secrets' in the area.

Playa Del Rey 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.
