Ethnic Diversity

Not only does San Pedro reflect racial diversity but that of nationality. Specifically, It is said that San Pedro is home to about 15,000 persons of Croatian/Yugoslavian decent (Croatian and Yugoslavian are not so interchangeable anymore. I'm not particularly sure if those of Serbian decent is thrown into the mix here but on the safe side, I'll just go with Croatian.). This is pretty amazing number since the population of San Pedro is just over 80,000 or so . This would mean that those of Croatian decent are about 18% of San Pedrans. Many Croatians of the Dalmatian immigrated here in the 20th century to settle in a sunny port city. Along 7th St, I noticed a big Croatian cultural center. It's amazing the things I happen to stumble upon about great Los Angeles!

LA Times article on Croatians

While the Croatian presence is pretty clear in my mind, I have also notice that there has to be a Norwegian presence also, as I have spotted the church building seen below.

Say San PEE-Dro or San PEH-Dro?

by marinarena

So, here is an example why people who are not familar with the local area can have some trouble, in this case a minor issue...

The way "San Pedro" is pronounced causes a bit of a controversy. The way in which it is commonly said is San PEE-dro. Many locals prefer to say it this way, though some like me would opt for the Spanish way to say it: San PEH-dro (with the rolling "r" sound). It just sounds more romantic and respectful the latter way but what do I know really :-)?

Some latinos in the greater L.A area do pronounce it as it should be originally, however those who are more Americanized just say it with the PEE, just like others white, black and otherwise would here.

So, to say San PEE-Dro or San PEH-dro...it is not a great debate but something interesting to note. All of This just shows how, moreover, that American-English is very much localized and therefore different from region to region in the US. Also, with the San Pedro example, it can be realized that American-English is very frustrating to learn with its many variations of sounds and its nuisance of borrowing from other languages to build on vocabulary.

"Pedro Pride"

This is a great little town to live in with a ton of diversity. Great South Bay breezes keep it pretty cool. All of the many cultures in one place are tons of fun. Italian, Croation, Irish, American, Mexican.

San Pedro aka World Port LA

by Robert96

San Pedro is a nice little corner of the urban sprawl we call Los Angeles county. The locals call it San Pee-dro, not San Pay-dro. I have lived here most of my life, and I don't know why we pronounce it that way.
The harbor is impressive, though not very scenic. The scenic part of town is the south end. At that part of San Pedro you will find Point Fermin Park and its lighthouse, Paseo del Mar, the Korean Friendship Bell, and Fort. MacArthur.

One of the most reconizable landmarks in San Pedro is the Vincent Thomas Bridge. The third largest suspension bridge in the state connects San Pedro to Terminal Island. Let me make one thing perfectly clear it is not the Saint Vincent Thomas Bridge. I have heard it called that, much to my amazment. Vincent Thomas was an assemblyman,and a Democrat, and to my knowledge has not been cannonized.
In Downtown San Pedro you can find small shops and artist galleries (6th and 7th Street between Harbor Blvd & Pacific Ave). Be sure and stop by the Union War Surplus Store. San Pedro is home to manny great restraunts. In the downtown area Marcello's (7th St.) and Neil's (5th St.) are two of my favorites.

Ports "O" Call

by janders

A look at the Historic San Pedro City Hall & "NEW" Red Car Service.
The Picture was taken down at the Ports 'O' Call village.
Ports 'O' Call has cleaned up some and is still the best place to eat some GREAT seafood that is fresh and cheap. The Best deal is the seafood fajitas, that are served on a a flat tray.(like those seen at Taco Bell) The fajitas meat is your choice of shrimp or white fish, and mixed onions, bell peppers and spices. HOT!!!
Another great deal is the fish plate. You can't miss that plate or "meal". That's what the majority of people that are eating ,get while at the "International Cafe".
If seafood is not what your in to, they do have mexican food, pizza, etc. But if you get the the pizza, beware it could take up to 20 to 30 minutes if you didn' t get the last slice.
There is plenty of things to do while visiting Ports "O" Call.
Shops, Heliocopter tour, Harbor Cruises, or drive a small boat yourself .($40, Per Hr.) on the harbor.
The Maritime Museum is another great place to visit. And for a $1.00 donation, you can't beat it.
Across the street is the Red Car station. $1.00 fare will let you ride all day .
The Red Car is the old trolly that use to get you all around L.A. back in the early days. Two of the three cars are vintage.

The Helicopter Tour is good, but a little on the expensive side.
$30 dollars for about 10 minutes

Red Card approching station

A picture on the inside of the Red Car.
Beautiful interior wood work.

Here's the Shrimp fajitas. That is alot of food. Enough for two people.
$13.00 DOLLARS!!!!!!!

The Korean Friendship Bell is at
Angels Gate Park just west of Ports "O" Call
