Sights Around L.A.: The Korean Bell of Friendship

As many of you know, I love Los Angeles. In addition to finding the best restaurants out there in L.A. and elsewhere, I also like to visit some pretty remarkable places around the county. The pictures below in the sideshow were from today when I visited the Korean Bell of Friendship in San Pedro.

The Bell was delivered to the United States as a gift from the Republic of Korea in 1976. It symbolizes the continued commitment and friendship between the two nations. The bell is rung five times annually–New Year’s Eve, Korean American Day (January 13), the American Independence Day (Fourth of July), Korean Liberation Day (August 15) and every September in celebration of Constitution Week.

It’s a unique and beautiful landmark to visit and as a proud Korean-American, I’m glad I had the opportunity to visit the site today. Go check it out for yourself as well. It’s located at 3601 S Gaffey St, Los Angeles, CA 90731.
