The seaside community of Point Loma is an elegant town noted for history and culture. The coastal peninsula separates the San Diego Bay from the Pacific Ocean and houses two major military bases, a national cemetery, a national monument, and a university. Point Loma and Ocean Beach is home for approximately 50,000 people. The historical significance of Point Loma’s hosting of the first European landing in California is comparable to very few expeditions in the history of the United States. The famous Old Point Loma Lighthouse shined it’s first light in 1855 and is located within the Cabrillo National Monument. Marine activities at the three yacht clubs, including the San Diego Yacht club (home to America’s Cup 1988-1995) are supplemented with numerous small boat marinas. Along the western side of the peninsula, Sunset Cliffs portrays a dreamy spectacle to be admired by any worldly person. Ocean Beach has many events throughout the year, one of which is the Farmers Market Wednesdays. The block party is a thriving example of how the community is an active participant in the up and coming cultural life styles.
