Whenever I have friends in from out of town, I bring them to see this lighthouse. It's on the property of the Cabrillo National Monument and close to Fort Rosecrans National Cemetary. All three sites have excellent views of San Diego Bay and the Pacific...More

One of my most favorite lighthouses! Not only is it a beauty but the views of San Diego and the ocean cannot be beat! Plus you can also visit the Cabrillo Monument and Ft. Rosecrans on the drive out to the end of Point Loma.

This is inside Cabrillo National Monument, so you'll have to pay to go in, but it's worth it! A very cool old light house with lots of info and great views!

This is a cool little place to visit when in San Diego. You have to drive to the end of Point Loma and pay parking/entrance fee. The seagulls up here are fearless and will eat your lunch out of your hand so watch out. the...More

This is inside Cabrillo National Monument. Nice little light house (not very tall, but it sits on a high bluff.) They have it furnished the way it would have been many years ago. We enjoyed it.

Kids 6 and 8. Loved the tide pools. We checked the tides to time our visit. The kids did like the old light house and display. We then visited the museum. Good experience for all.

This place closes early, 5pm. The first day we stopped by, it was closed. We though we could just snap some photos outside the light house when it was all lit up, but you can't get close enough to do that. It's all fenced up...More

Toured the inside of the lighthouse to see how the family lived inside of this charming old structure. Take stairs up to the top inside. The real deal.

Lighthouse is in the Cabrillo location, so you pay $10/car. Interesting lighthouse history. Building is restored and open to visitors. This is definitely worth a tourist hour.

You pay a fee to get into the Carrillo National Monument Park. I think it was like $10. But once you're past the gate then everything else is free. There is no additional fee to go into the lighthouse, or the visitor center... More
