San Diego history starts here and captivates the history buff who enjoys lighthouses as a special feature. The view of San Diego and the mountains is spectacular . It is a national Park that allows for you to roam all the way down to the tide pools.
Cabrillo monument offers a rich historical side of San Diego.The museum is complete with a movie and photos.The lighthouse is worth the short hike.During the right season whale watching is a must.Make sure to stop by the tidepools at the bottom of the hill for some great ocean views.
