Interesting historical exhibits about Cabrillo, the earliest European explorer in the area. Beautiful view back toward San Diego.

This is another great site to visit. You can see downtown San Diego from the viewing platform and it is a spectacular view of the bay. On an another viewing platform facing the ocean you can look for whales.

Take the time to head up to the monument. For $5, you can take your car into the park, but there are many things to see once in the park.

We had a day to spend in San Diego and I wanted to see the ocean so we drove up to the monument and enjoyed the beautiful panoramic view of the city, bay and ocean. We also watched the movie about Cabrillo which was informative then we went down to the tide pools and walked around and sat end enjoyed watching the breaking waves, the surfers and the dolphins. A great relaxing spot!

Worth the drive up to this...the view of the SD harbor is stunning. There's a visitor center, but didn't go in, I was more interested in visiting the lighthouse, which was very interesting.
