Used my National Park pass and thoroughly enjoyed about 4 hours at this lovely place! We went hiking down to the rocky coast on the ocean side, enjoyed a picnic, and then later enjoyed the vistas of San Diego and the gift shop!

Point Loma in my opinion is probably one of the best visitor attractions in the San Diego area. It scenic beyond belief and the views both over the city and the sea are amazing. Well worth a visit.

What a lovely way to spend a few hours checking out a bit of history and the stunning views of San Diego. I recommend you do the whole thing on foot once parked.
