More California Historical Landmarks around San Diego Bay

This afternoon, I decided to celebrate National Park Week with a visit to Cabrillo National Monument at the end of Point Loma. Since I was downtown to start with, I decided to wrap in a visit to Spanish Landing, along the harbor of San Diego Bay…. and after visiting the Cabrillo Lighthouse, I just kept searching for landmarks in Point Loma and Liberty Station.

In all, I visited these California Historical Landmarks:

  • Spanish Landing – No. 891 – at Spanish Landing Park (across Harbor Drive from the airport)
  • Old Point Loma Lighthouse – No. 51 – at Cabrillo National Monument
  • Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery – No. 55 – at the cemetery that is just north of Cabrillo
  • Old La Playa – No. 61 – at the entrance to the Naval Base Point Loma (along with some La Playa Trail markers)
  • El Desembarcadero – No. 64 – Liberty Station area on Farragut Street
  • USS Recruit – No. 1041 – Liberty Station

I’ll post some photos later this week!
