Palos Verdes homes owners will be celebrating LA Fleet Week May 26 through May 29, 2023, with the arrival of large navy ships which will be visiting the Port of Los Angeles. The list of this year’s visiting ships are not published yet due to security issues, but you can check one week before the Memorial Day weekend to see which ships are coming to town. This is a great opportunity for Palos Verdes homes owners to tour these active duty ships for a one of a kind visit.
