There isn't tons to do here, but it's a nice place to visit and has an amazing ocean view. We like to visit Cabrillo National Monument, which has a small fee per carload, not per person, to enter (I think it's $5) and that fee is good for admission for the entire week. There are a couple of museums, a visitors center, a souvenir shop, and, of course, Cabrillo's statue where he first landed on the coast. You can see the Pacific Fleet from the Monument and there are signs that explain the different ships and planes. You can also visit the old Point Loma Lighthouse and climb up inside of it. You get to see the rooms where the lighthouse attendants lived and learn interesting information about it. You can go on a scenic hike or take an easier trail where you can visit tide pools and go right down to the ocean. There are also observation decks where you can look out over the ocean and it's a sensational view. It is kid and family friendly and affordable.
