If you are an adventurer who happens to be driving along, exploring the coastline, you should come across Wilmington on your tour. This photo pretty much says what the Wilmington coastal experience is like unless you head into the city. The downtown area is actually kind of busy, but has some old-fashioned signage and includes a great diversity of people living and working in the region.


Prepare yourself for a line of semi-trucks moving goods from Los Angeles Port to all points east, north and south. The intermodal train traffic network at the Port was designed to merge and funnel onto Alameda corridor, a $2.4 billion, 20-mile-long cargo expressway, and though it works fairly well, even transport companies have a rush hour in L.A.


Wilmington is also home to refineries seen in the photo. If you prefer to avoid this route, travel Ocean Boulevard in Long Beach to the Vincent Thomas Bridge which will bypass this region and take you to your next beach stop, San Pedro. If the adventurer in you chooses or ends up by accident in Wilmington, hang in there because you will soon find beach access locations just around the bend north in San Pedro and Rancho Palos Verdes or south in Long Beach on Ocean Boulevard.
