Overlooking San Diego you drive thru military cemetaries very somber and should be treated with respect. Going with this are great views, walking trails and ocean pools to admire. Worth the trip out to the lighthouse too.

Well worth the visit for absolutely fantastic views of San Diego bay, North Island and Coronado. Lots of history here with the military installations, Fort Rosecrans cemetery and the Light House. Bring your camera to capture the memories.

Pt. Loma is rich in history, especially along the bay that currently houses 5 yacht clubs and various boat repair shops. You can also hear the harbor seals squealing and the fog horns blowing steadily. You can catch a sunset from the small café on...More
