Was a fun place to see - very interesting ...such a beautiful area and something fun to do. Sometimes a bit crowded, so allow time.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

To see how a lighthouse keeper lived back in the day, this place was amazing. There is a lot of history here and a great view of San Diego and the Atlantic Ocean. I would definitely come back for a second visit when I am in San Diego again.

“The View!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Interesting light house and displays but what you really come for is the view! Panoramic views of San Diego, the Pacific and the surrounding coast.

Nice walk up from the parking lot, and there is path down to near the water, but not actually to the shore.

Only reason I didn't give it another star is that it's relatively small and could use a picnic area.

“Love to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Love the view - history and drive out through the cemetery for the military. On the way back stop at Ocean Beach walk around - fun streets and people.

“Peek into history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is worth the $5 national parks entry fee, especially the gorgeous drive to the lighthouse/Cabrillo Monument. It was neat to wander around the lighthouse and get a glimpse of life as a lighthouse keeper (other than what you learn from watching Pete's Dragon). Wished we could have actually gone up to the top, but we missed that opportunity by a few weeks.

Photo opp if you can arrange it: Photographer at the top of the spiral staircase looking downwards, you at the bottom of the staircase looking up.
