San Pedro has a tradition of appointing an honorary mayor, but it is actually not a self-governing city, having been a district of the City of Los Angeles since 1909. The area is a very important contributor to the economy of Los Angeles and Southern California, because the Port of Los Angeles is made up of parts of San Pedro, Wilmington and Terminal Island. San Pedro’s history as a quaint fishing village shines through in its waterside Ports O’ Call Village and public tours of the historic Point Fermin Lighthouse. The Waterfront Red Car Line trolleys that run back and forth through downtown and the museum vessel USS Iowa are other reminders of days gone by. A more modern attraction is CRAFTED at the Port of LA, an indoor marketplace showcasing artists and craftspeople manning their own stalls and selling their goods. San Pedro is also home to California’s largest maritime museum, located in the old ferry building on the waterfront.
