- Part of the National Park Service, this monument with its breathtaking 360-degree view of the city of San Diego and far beyond was erected in honor of Captain Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, the first European to set foot on the west coast. Also onsite is the original lighthouse, which was replaced in 1891 by the one that still steers vessels away from shore. Tidepools delight young and old, history buffs enjoy the museum, and hiking enthusiasts are challenged by the trails. Gift shop and snacks are available.
