Plunge Into Fun for the Special Olympics

It may be wintertime in Marina del Rey, but come February 28, Mother’s Beach is going to be filled to the gills with zany, bathing suit wearing, costume-donning, soon-to-be-shivering heroes taking part in the 2015 Polar Plunge. This super cool event does mean you’re diving into 63-degree water (that’s where the “super cool” comes in), but the major bonus is that with your $50 donation, you’re benefiting the Special Olympics! That donation helps enrich the lives of athletes with intellectual disabilities by providing equipment, training, uniforms, and most importantly — empowerment, joy and improved health. So worthwhile.

Marina del Rey has long been a major go-to coastal hotspot with Mother’s Beach, beautiful parks, the harbor, a slew of excellent dining spots and, of course, the awesome waterfront apartment communities luring folks into town. But lately, we’ve also become a part of something else… something kind of monumental, actually. Our lovely little beach town is smack dab in the middle of the coolest new tech hub since Palo Alto. We’re part of Silicon Beach, people.

Get Fit at Burton Chace Park

If you live in Marina del Rey, there’s one key quality we all seem to share — we love the healthy lifestyle! How can we help it? We have the zen beach for yoga, bootcamp and volleyball, we have the water for kayaking and SUPing, and we have the park for hiking, biking and…. free exercise classes? Yep, you read that right.. free exercise classes. Pretty cool, right? Every Wednesday at Burton Chace Park, you can enjoy a free one-hour workout session with an awesome instructor. She’ll provide the equipment and inspiration, all you need to do is reserve your spot, get motivated and get down with the fitness. You must be at least 13 years old to participate.

This Sunday, February 1st, every football fan in Marina del Rey is going to be glued to their flat screens, just waiting for the Super Bowl XLIX kick-off in Phoenix. Whether you’re rooting for the Patriots or Seahawks, there’s no doubt it will be an exciting game. Not to mention the Katie Perry Half-Time Show, plus those insanely-expensive commercials to critique — Sunday is going to be nothing but fun. But the game doesn’t start until 6:30 pm, so what are you going to do until then? Well, we have some ideas that will keep you busy, prepped, energized and entertained until kick off time.
