It's always good to make your first stop anywhere be 'the i' and it was... More

The Marina del Rey Visitors Center is a small mission-style building located at the marina. The staffer, perhaps a volunteer, was very friendly and helpful. There were also helpful self-service kiosks for brochures and maps.

This visitor center is a bit different than others I have been to. Built in a lighthouse, it is not the most obvious building for a visitor center. Inside you will find all kinds of maps for the bike paths, local area, water taxi, ,,,,, They are also aware and informative on boat parades, local concerts, ... but when you... More

Just off of the marina on Admiralty Way, the visitors center is normally staffed and they can provide information on any upcoming activities and also about hotels and restaurants in the area.

I stop in here several times a year to update my local bike trails maps and info, as well as to learn about local events like fireworks, boat parades, etc. Friendly and knowledgable staff. Maps of bike paths including Marvin Braude and Ballona Wetlands. Located right on Admiralty across from Ralph's. Look for the lighthouse.

The Marina Del Rey Visitor's Information Center should have better signage and visibility to go with this go to area. I live here & didn't know about it until recently - that's how visible it is!! Once found, the folks were very helpful. They do the best with what they have. ...

We visited the Marina del Rey Visitor Center. It is in a scenic adobe house. The staff was very helpful. They are a source for local information, lodging, and maps, etc.

A not so obvious visitors centre with not so helpful information. The staff in here were nice enough but they really couldn't help us with anything we wanted to do . I'm sure they are great for things really local to the marina itself but really had no idea about how to get to anything beyond the immediate vicinity .... More

So its a little adobe house across from a shopping center and almost no one who lives around knows what it is. This place should be at Fisherman's Village or Burton Chase Park. Not there.
