Solo Female Trip: Via Marina Point, CA

On Thanksgiving, I decided to head over to Via Marina Point in Marina Del Rey, CA to enjoy the peaceful scenery. The ocean breeze was nice and the sun was shining. I used to take our little dog here on my days off so I decided to pay this place a visit on my day off from work. Below are some solo female travel tips if you plan to visit Via Marina Point in Marina Del Rey, CA.

Why did I go alone? Well, I had to help my husband jump start his car and then we both drove separately for 30 mins to ensure our car batteries wouldn’t die. (WFH problems). As a result, I ended up at the beach and was walked along the water watching boats and birds zoom by. 

It was relaxing hearing a man playing his trumpet along to some jazz music from the back of his SUV and made for the perfect soundtrack of my beach visit. 


Visiting this place alone brought me back to the old days where I’d drive to the beach on my lunch break whenever work was stressful. I need to remember not to take all of this for granted. We live in a great location minutes to the beach.
