Someone recommended we visit Fort MacArthur (which was interesting) and we followed a sign to the Korean Friendship Bell. Oh, my, it is beautiful and sits on a hill overlooking the ocean and the Port of Los Angeles. It’s a bit cool with the sea...More

This place has a nice view over the pacific ocean. Only worth a visit if you will not have to travel more than 5 minutes for it or if you have Korean roots.

This site has a wonderful view of the ocean and the harbor, and it's a great place to fly a kite. It is often windy, but on summer afternoons, that can be welcome.

This is a lovely park with a nice view of the ocean and the port. It is a bit out of the way, but it is nice to stop at this pavilion if you are in the area--a gift of Korea.

Perched above Saint Vincent point, the Korean bell is built on a bunker from WW2 times. If you are an adventurer then you can probably google and find ways to get in. If not just enjoy the views of the Pacific from there.
