This historic lighthouse has been so well preserved and many updates make it great to visit. You can climb up the spiral staircase when everything is fully open again.

We really enjoyed our visit to Point Loma and the Lighthouse. Amazing views and lots of educational signs to read. Because of covid-19, we weren't able to go into the lighthouse, or any of the other buildings, but that was okay. We'll have to return on another visit.

Located in Cabrillo, you have to pay $20 per car for entrance. Well worth it since you can then access the lighthouse, the tide pools and all the great trails.

The lighthouse was closed, but you could walk up to it. It's a piece of history. Only used for 30- odd years because they put it too high on the hill. The new lighthouse is at sea level. If you're a hiker, there are trails. The entrance fee receipt gets you back in for a week, which is cool. Don't miss the nearby tide pools, and the national cemetery as you come or go.

It sits at the highest point of any lighthouse in the US, but the location was so poor they closed it down. Too much fog. Now a museum, but watch out for the ghosts.
