I had a car full of teenagers. I enjoyed looking around. It was 10 dollars to get in. You can drive to the different stops along the way. It’s very pretty. It was a nice day.

Easy to walk and interesting photo spots overlooking Pacific Ocean and San Diego Bay. Easy to park (cost a few dollars) and restaurant and restroom in short distance. Also visit the museum (light house).

One of San Diego's top attractions. Sits atop a cliff on Point Loma over looking the bay where ships enter the port of San Diego. Monument to Cabrillo, historical museum and a very nice gift shop. Also adjoins Rosencrans Veterans Cemetery.

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.
