Old Point Loma Lighthouse - San Diego, California


If you're visiting San Diego, be sure to stop for a visit at the Old Point Loma Lighthouse.

The lighthouse was first lit on November 15, 1855. However, fog and clouds often obscured the light, so, 36 years later, in 1891, the light was extinguished, and a new lighthouse was lit at the tip of the Point.

Although no longer in commission, this lighthouse is a great place to visit, not only for views of the San Diego Bay, but because the interior was refurbished to its 1880s appearance by the National Park Service.
