This is one of my favorite places in San Diego, and I have visited quite a few times. Supposedly this is where the explorer Juan Cabrillo landed (first time for an European). First of all, the view here is great. You have pretty much a 360 degree view of things, including the Pacific ocean, the San Diego bay, Coronado Island. You can see downtown San Diego in a distance. For the history buffs, they have a light house that cool to visit as well as all the story behind Cabrillo. I think it's a nice place to just go sit and take in the ocean.
