Old Point Loma Lighthouse, San Diego: 11 reviews and 45 photos
Having guided ships through San Diego Bay for 36 years (1855 - 1891), today, the Old Point Loma Lighthouse serves as a little reminder of San Diego's maritime past. The interior of the lighthouse has been refurbished to its original appearance and is open to the public for viewing. Come see how the lighthouse keeper and his family use to live and work in such small quarters. The reason why the old lighthouse was eventually abandoned was because of its elevation; the fog and low clouds obscured the light that helped maneuver the ships into the bay. The new lighthouse was built closer to the shore.
