This old lighthouse takes you back in time. It appears as if its residents just walked away from their home, leaving it looking like it did when they were living there and were the light keepers. Great display, lots of history, amazing views of the...More

Most Southwestern point of the US - why not? The views from Cabrillo National Park and the tide pools are fabulous. The lighthouse is a great little piece of history. Neat to see

We enjoyed this very much. With our national parks pass our visit to this historic site was free so we could not lose. But I am so glad we went. It is a fascinating lighthouse and the information in the assistant keeper's building was very...More

If the weather is good, we ALWAYS take our out-of-town guests here. You can spend a good half-day here with all there is to see. The Old Point Loma Lighthouse is located in a US National Park so you need to go through their entrance...More

A walk through this beautiful building is worth the time and effort. This is an opportunity to see how a nonmechanized noncomputerized lighthouse works

The perspective from this location is amazing, and to try and picture it as the lighthouse was in operation is almost impossible! The building is well maintained and well worth a look while in the park!

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
