If you come to San Diego don’t miss this place. If it is a great sunny day you will enjoy fantastic views and learn about Juan G. Cabrillo and it’s great discovery on 16th century!

This is a wonderful place to visit. The overlook of San Diego is breathe taking. I would suggest going at low tide so that you can enjoy the tide pools.

Even with our young daughters ages 8, 7 and 5, this place offered an interesting experience. The exhibit was visually engaging for our girls and the history and maps of lighthouses along the West Coast was quite educational. This area is worth the $10 entrance...More

Yes , I think so, but recommend calling Park directly to confirm (or check their website). I didn't notice any pets while there, but wasn't really paying attention to that given the scenic beauty.

I honestly don't have an answer for you. If you are a serious cyclist them I suppose you could do it. The ride would not be leisurely! It is a long and steep hill to get out there. I don't know where Liberty Station is in... More
