Sunshine & Stroll around the Old Point Loma Lighthouse
- July 7, 2021
- Cabrillo National Monument
Situated on top of a cliff, the Old Point Loma Lighthouse used to be the most elevated lighthouse in the United States. Built in 1854!
It was so tall, in fact, that the clouds often hid it from view, so lighthouse keepers would fire shotguns at approaching ships to keep them away.
Things are much less dramatic now, but the Old Point Loma Lighthouse is still great in terms of San Diego attractions.
You can take a tour, explore the grounds, visit the on-site museum and catch a show from historical re-enactors.
On a beautiful day, get a beautiful view of the Point Loma cliffs and tide pools! Walk around and take in the beautiful horizon, or even see the downtown skyline!
