The Old Point Loma lighthouse sits atop the Point Loma penninsula. It is located in the Cabrillo National Monument. Inside the lighthouse you can see the way that the the lighthouse keepers lived and you can climb part way up the lighthouse. There is probably a great view from the top, but understandably, you are not allowed to ascend all the way to the top. Adjacent to the lighthouse is another building where a great deal of history related to the lighthouse is presented. There is also a large lighthouse lens which is interesting to see. If you visit Cabrillo National Monument make sure to stop at the lighthouse.
