So today I went to my very first ever abandoned hospital! It wasn't so much abandoned as it was burned down, but it was still pretty sweet. I wasn't even sure where it was, but I had two guesses. So we all leave early this morning and go to my first guess. It wasn't there. Then we go to my second guess, and we still didn't see anything, but we saw this odd path, and decided to park and take a hike. The first thing we find is an old miniature golf course! It was pretty cool.
Some of them still had the fake grass, but for most of them it'd be torn apart or removed. But it was still pretty neat. So we kept walking, which seemed like forever, and we finally found the abandoned hospital. But I don't think it was the place I was looking for in the first place, as I was looking for an actual abandoned place, not one that was burned down, but anyway. It was still pretty sweet. Here's a bunch of photos from it.
Marineland of the Pacific was an aquarium on the Palos Verdes peninsula (south of Los Angeles, north of Long Beach). At the time of its opening in 1954, it was the largest oceanarium in the world. The park closed in 1987.
The ruins of Marineland will soon be replaced by a "luxury resort." I visited this location a few times last summer, but as of September, construction crews surrounded the few remaining structures. I imagine most of this is gone by now...
