Just south of downtown Los Angeles, San Pedro is a small seaside community best known as the home of the Port of Los Angeles. For those looking to soak in the sun, Cabrillo Beach is rife with swimmers, scuba divers, confused cross-country skiers, and windsurfers tackling the elements as massive cargo ships pass in the background. Cabrillo essentially spans two beaches: one oceanfront area where surfing is popular and a separate, more gentle area ideal for young swimmers within the harbor. The nearby, Frank Gehry–designed Cabrillo Marine Aquarium houses a wide range of aquatic creatures, including black sea nettles, jellyfish, and california sea lions.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.

When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, Inc., he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.
The chopper-whisperers of Rotor Aviation help make would-be pilots' sky-bound dreams come true. One of the aviation center's most popular services is its training program, whose classes range from casual workshops to pilot-certification prep courses for the most serious students. Experienced pilots can rent out Rotor Aviation's helicopters, which is also helpful for those looking to use an intimidating-looking paperweight during their first few days at the office. The on-staff pilots also use those choppers to take aerial photographs, help dry construction sites, and add glitz to special events such as weddings or marriage proposals.
Think of a Pediwagon as a mobile bar counter where revelers socialize while pedals siphon off empty beer calories. Up to 15 people board the pedal-powered vehicle, which requires at least six pairs of feet to keep it moving. The wagon shuttles groups through all manner of events, from bachelor parties and pub crawls to city tours, and can be reserved for a minimum of two hours.
