Last fall, we shared a post about the incredible hiking opportunities at Point Loma. But there are plenty more activities to enjoy and things to do in Cabrillo National Monument and Point Loma than just traversing the varied terrain. Here are a few more suggestions for getting out and enjoying spring in San Diego, and specifically, this grand park right in our own backyard.
Tour the Area with GoCar
GoCar San Diego is a company that came up with the incredible idea of offering rental cars with GPS-guided storytelling. All you have to do is start driving and your GoCar “guide” will let help you navigate the sights and streets of San Diego while leading you to attractions such as the Gaslamp Quarter, the zoo, Balboa Park and, of course, Point Loma at the Cabrillo National Monument.
Speed Through the Waters in a Boat
If driving through traffic doesn’t sound like much fun, how about taking a speed boat tour? With San Diego Speed Boat Adventures, Inc., you get to drive your own boat and take a two-hour guided and narrated tour through San Diego Harbor. You get the best of both worlds: the fun of driving your own boat coupled with a knowledgeable and witty narration about the historical sights around the harbor.
Brunch or Dinner on the Harbor
Here’s another idea perfect for a romantic date. With Hornblower Dining Cruises, you can either book a relaxing tour of San Diego Bay while enjoying a delicious dinner or full-blown (pun intended) weekend champagne brunch. Even if you live in Southern California, you are sure to enjoy a new view from the water of The Star of India, Seaport Village, Coronado Bay Bridge, shipbuilding, Shelter Island and Point Loma, along with a scrumptious meal and the best view of the San Diego skyline.
This May: Cabrillo Under the Stars
Here is an adventure that you only get to experience once a year. This May 18th Cabrillo National Monument is hosting their “Cabrillo Under the Stars” fundraising event. This popular event features great food from local restaurants as well as sips of local craft beers and wines. This is a rare opportunity to visit the park after dark and enjoy an amazing view of the sunset and the San Diego city lights. It will also include a silent auction, live music and the opportunity to win gift cards and sponsor a needy child. The best news is that the funds raised on this special night will benefit special education programs at fund more things to do in Cabrillo National Monument. You will certainly want to make plans to attend this fabulous and fun, fundraising event.
