The Cabrillo National Monument commemorates the exploration of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo to California. The park is open for day use only (9am - 5:15pm) and charges an entrance fee of $5.00 per car for a 7-day pass and $2.00 for pedestrians and cyclists. The highlights of the park include it's sweeping views of the bay city and neighboring Mexico, as well as the Cabrillo statue, Old Point Loma Lighthouse, the whale overlook, walking trails, and the tidepool area (to which you must drive to). This is a great spot for photo opps and just admiring the beautiful city that is San Diego.
