5 Springtime To-Dos for Shores Residents

Head up to a Sky Terrace and take a good long breath — you feeling that freshness in the air? That would be the arrival of spring at Shores! Yes, it’s pretty much always perfection in Marina del Rey, but after the equinox came last week it seems like the whole town is reinvigorated. Maybe that’s because there are always fun to-dos happening around town, and if you’re up for it, new possibilities unfolding every day. That’s the beauty of living at Shores — we’re never lacking in the good time department.

Let’s take a look at 5 of the best ways Shores’ residents can take advantage of springtime splendor.

1. Indulge in Your Own Home Turf Paradise

First on the list will always be the awesome amenities right at Shores. The weather right now is as amazing as it gets, and vegging out by that amazing pool, relaxing on the Sky Terraces, barbecuing up a feast, or challenging your neighbors to some bocce ball is 100% encouraged. Every day.

2. Hit the Farmer’s Market

When spring hits, the Farmer’s Market at Mother’s Beach is overflowing with some of our favorite eats (and most beautiful seasonal flowers). Artichokes, strawberries, fresh apricots and asparagus are just a few of springtime’s in-season gifts to our tummies. Every Thursday from 9 am to 2 pm, this is where you want to be.

3. Cruise with the Easter Bunny

Seriously, whether you’re a holiday fan or not — what’s more fun than sailing on a Hornblower cruise ship surrounded by free-flowing champagne, tons of chocolate, and a gourmet spread that could feed a kingdom? Yep, nothing. Two brunch cruises are happening on Sunday, April 5th… make your reservations!

4. Brush Up on Your Water Skills for Summer

Those few months before summer is the perfect time to master the waves so you can SUP like a champ, kayak without breaking a sweat, or get your balance down for some SUP Yoga.  Try SUP with Wade for SUP lessons or sign up with Aqua Yoga if you want to crush that Warrior Pose on the water.

5. Bike Up to Burton Chace Park for a Concert

The Burton Chace Park concerts kind of embody the small-town charm of Marina del Rey — plus, they’re really fun. The first spring concert of the year is happening on Saturday, March 21st at 1 pm with the great Bob DeSena Latin Jazz Band entertaining the afternoon masses. It’s only a little over 1.5 miles away from Shores, so pack a picnic and head over for the show.
