    Awesome views, get there early (before 2) before attendant shows up for free admission & plenty of parking. Park close to exit end. Take time for the exhibits

    Great views of San Diego and the Bay. On a clear day you can see the Coronado Islands. If your lucky you may even see a big Navy ship entering or leaving the harbor.

    The statue itself is nice, but not nearly as imposing as the view.

    Even on a sunny day, temperatures here can be cool, so bring a jacket; and pack a lunch -- the site has great picnicking spots but no food facilities. You should plan on a minimum of 90 minutes here.

    Make sure you get to the tide pools before 3 to be safe. The sign says 4:30, but the Rangers can be very unfriendly and close the gate early.

    Take the Bayside Trail for views that stretch into Mexico and out to the Cuyamaca Mountains, plus up-close viewing of pit-stopping migratory birds. Read more

    You can rent a pair of binoculars for free from the information center. Just leave your drivers license with them.

    차량 한대당 입장료 10$ 한 사람은 5$ 이므로 차량 만차로 오는게 저렴. 등대 공원 카브릴로 기념 공원을 산책하며 오션과 다운타운 가운데서 양쪽으로 동시 감상이 가능한 가 있어요
