Great visiting spot and highly recommended. Get a great view of San Diego and harbour bay. History information to read for both educational and just absolutely enjoyable.

The history of this place is amazing! Well worth visiting. There are lots of people so be patient when touring the light house.

We went to the Lighthouse and park for an afternoon of sightseeing. We were not disappointed! The park has amazing views of the City and Coronado Island. The Light hose provides views of the Pacific. It was a nice park to explore!

The highlight of the visit to Old Point Loma. Super charming and beautiful. You can go inside, see the rooms as they were decorated many years ago. You can also get to know the history in the attached house. I loved it.

OK, so this is not for everyone... some people may not be into historical lighthouses... but, it is an interesting place, with great views all around ;-)

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
