I would say here is a Really good place for a walk and you can really enjoy the Great Views of San Diego from here !! First you have to pay 10 Dollars for Parking and there is a Cool place here for you to enjoy the Cool Breeze blowing around !! Also I would suggest going to the Light House it is really cool !!! Overall Good place to take your Family, Friends or even your Lover !!
Cabrillo National Monument is so beautiful. You have some absolutely fabulous views of San Diego and the Pacific Ocean. The area is full of history and the park is geared towards educating it's guests about the environment and history of the place. When we visited they were hosting artists who had set up in the park and were painting different views and scenery. It was really fun seeing all the different styles and takes with the landscape right in front of you. I particularly enjoyed the tide pools and what felt like armadas of pelicans flying overhead.
If you are visiting San Diego, put this place on your list! Hike, Bike, Walk! Great place to go to exercise. San Diego has amazing weather al year round. The tide pools close at 4:30pm and be prepared to pay $10 even if you are riding a bike. If you plan to go more than a few times a year, buy an annual pass.
Hike while looking across the bay over downtown San Diego. Also great for whale watching.
