Los Angeles’ New England fishing village since
1963, Ports O’ Call Village, located along the Port of
Los Angeles' Main Channel in San Pedro, is a unique
seaside plaza that features souvenir and gift shops,
along with popular and one-of-a-kind restaurants,
tempting sweetshops, fish markets and quick-bite
eateries. In front of the village’s namesake
Ports O’ Call Restaurant stands a statue modeled after
the famous “Gorton’s Fisherman” in Gloucester,
With meandering cobblestone walkways weaving through the
15-acre destination, Ports O’ Call is also the
departure point for narrated harbor tours, dinner dance
cruises and whale watching excursions. Enjoy a relaxing lunch or dinner
at one of the many restaurants overlooking the harbor.
Afterward, take a walk along the boardwalk and stop
for a photo with the picturesque harbor backdrop.
Ports O’ Call Village is easy to reach and offers free
parking, a rarity with most oceanfront venues.
On February 21, 2013, the Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners unanimously approved an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement ("ENA") between the City of Los Angeles Harbor Department and The Ratkovich Company and Jerico Development, as the "Developer," for the redevelopment of the entitled 30-acre waterfront site in the Port of Los Angeles that includes the Ports O' Call Village. As part of the ENA process, the Developer is undertaking a series of public outreach meetings to gather community input for the Ports O' Call site redevelopment.
