  • These beautifully restored buildings represent an important part of California maritime history. The views are stunning. We had knowledgeable tour guides and a comfy bus ride up the steep hill.
  • A beautiful lighthouse to visit and enjoy especially if you like to experience the tours and hear the history of light houses. They will have you park at a pre-disclosed location and a tour bus will drive you through the winding road to the secluded location where this lighthouse is. Definitely a fun tour and beautiful view all the way around
