It’s easy to get around Cabrillo National Monument. State Highway 209, also known as Cabrillo Memorial Drive, is the only road leading into the park, and it is signed and well-marked. Wide, paved paths and sidewalks lead visitors to the Visitor Center Complex, Lighthouse area, Whale Overlook, and Military History Exhibit. If a member of your party is unable to walk to the Lighthouse area, stop in at the Visitor Center for a pass that will enable you to drive there.
Did You Know?
Did you know that the Old Point Loma Lighthouse at Cabrillo National Monument was only in service for 36 years? Due to its hilltop location, the light was frequently obscured by low clouds and fog, forcing construction of a new lighthouse closer to the water.
