Cabrillo National Monument sits at the tip of Point Loma Peninsula in San Diego, California. The views of San Diego Harbor, skyline, Naval Air Station North Island, and Coronado are amazing. In 1932 it became as California Historical Landmark and on October 15, 1966 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
In 1542 Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo was the first European to set foot on the west coast of the United States. To read more about Cabrillo, click here. I’m not that into Cali history and I didn’t take notes when I was there. I hate to admit but when I’m not into something no matter how many times I try to read about it, my mind drifts so I’m attaching links so I don’t mess it up.
I realized we didn’t take a lot of pictures while looking through them. We walked around, checked out the information center which spoke about Cali history.
The lighthouse was cute but I don’t remember what else was in it. The fog made me think of the movie, The Fog, the one from the 1980s. That’s one of my favorites. Click here to read more about the lighthouse.
We didn’t make it to the tide pools because we had to pick up my cousin’s kid from school and the tides were still too high. We ate lunch at Bronx pizza because we wanted to know if it really tasted like NY pizza and IT DID. The owners are from the Bronx and have the NY accent and all. This is my cousin’s go to pizza place. All my relatives that left NYC crave pizza, its a staple of our diet. Her daughter was like, “You could get that back home…’ We laughed, we just had to know if it was truly like home and it really did taste right. So if you are ever in San Diego and want a NY slice, go to Bronx Pizza.
