Cabrillo National Monument may be one of San Diego's most scenic parks, also offering a look into California history where the first European settler, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, stepped foot on the country's West Coast. Visitors can also enjoy access to the low-tide pools and Old Point Loma Lighthouse.
There's one more opportunity for locals to take advantage of free admission at national parks this year on Nov. 11 -12 in celebration of Veteran's Day.
Outside of these special free entrance days, free passes are offered to active duty military personnel and citizens with a permanent disability. A special free admission pass is also offered for fourth-grade students through the Every Kid in a Park program. For more information, visit the National Parks Service website.
