Serving All of Wilmington

Wilmington is a Los Angeles Harbor area neighborhood that has a relatively low population for its size, which is just one reason why it appeals to property investors and residents, alike. This primarily industrial area is home to Terminal Island, and those who do reside here enjoy scenic coastal views. Wilmington is bordered on the west by the 110 freeway, making car travel to nearby areas convenient. Getting around is easy, too, thanks to its public transit system. Surrounding the neighborhood are plenty of places to shop and eat, and beautiful Long Beach is just minutes away.
