Considering a move to Marina del Rey?
You are not alone. This unincorporated community in Los Angeles County is home to about 10,000 residents and 94% of them actually rent rather than own. Marina del Rey is known for its Marina and the beautiful harbor that's a major boating and water recreation destination of the greater Los Angeles area. The Marina del Rey port is North America's largest man-made, small craft harbor and currently houses over 5000 watercraft vessels. It's primarily a tourist destination for both land and water activities such as kayaking, paddleboarding, cruising, yacht charters, and vacationers.
Marina del Rey is Spanish for "Harbor of the King" and is truly a paradise fit for a king.

Downtown Los Angeles is about 17 miles or 40 to 60 minutes by car from Marina del Rey. Santa Monica is less than 5 miles, Century City is about 8 miles, and Burbank California is about 29 miles away. For those that work in downtown or surrounding communities and towns, it's important to understand commute routes and the time it takes to get there. 5 miles might not sound a lot, but it could take up to 40 minutes depending on traffic so it's an important factor when choosing where to live in Los Angeles County.
