This little piece of Portuguese history adds to the color of San Diego. The architecture is so pleasing to the area and has been kept with the transition from military to civilian over the years.

Nice shops and restaurants in this beach town. Very laid back and friendly people as well. Strict parking laws so park where you should or you will be ticketed.

Awesome view of both the bay and the Pacific. I went out to view the sunset and was disappointed to learn that it is a state park and it closed at 5pm. I recommend going out there and spending some time. After I was done seeing what I could with the park closed, I walked back 5 miles to Point... More

I suggest all visitors to San Diego visit Point Loma and the national monument that is Cabrillo, the lighthouse, museum and the tide pools. Very enjoyable and picturesque!

We stayed on Point Loma and though most attractions were too far to walk to, we enjoyed a ton of the bars and restaurants in the area. (Point Loma Seafoods, Bali Hai, Brigantine, Humphreys)

This is #1 on our list, and we fortunately were able to squeeze this in on our last day. My husband enjoyed this primarily due to seeing a submarine and jet leave the naval base below. The weather was hazy, but we were still able to see some amazing views, wildlife, and spent a great morning with the family!

Incredible views of one of America's finest cities and maybe most impressive harbor. The stunning vistas ran from downtown San Diego and the sprawling city to the equally stunning sprawl of Tijuana in the distance. Nice, sedate neighborhood with some incredibly beautiful homes fronted by some of the most exclusive yacht clubs in the country, cute restaurants, nice beaches on... More
