First cruise out of San Pedro is coming up and I know nothing about the city. Staying at the Crown Plaza the night before we leave and I have been told that there are some good restaurants within a short distance but what I really need to know is there someplace handy I can buy some decent wine. Thanks in advance for any help.

According to the web site it looks like there are three of them within a couple of blocks. That makes my logistics a whole lot easier.

Off the Vine is our local wine shop....They have a real nice variety to choose from and Mike will deliver the wines to you, too. 2 blocks up (west) from the CP.

Also, most grocery stores in California carry beer, wine and liquor. Only limitation is they can sell between 6am and 2am (if they are open at that hour)

Ozbuc thank you for the link to San Pedro wine stores and restaurants. We will be staying at the Crowne Plaza. Are the majority of these places within walking distance?

I have to second the vote for Off the Vine. The owner and staff are great. The selection is very good, something for everyone. It's a nice short walk from the CP.
