Climbing out of his boat and onto shore in 1542 near present-day San Diego, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo stepped into history as the first European to set foot on what is now the West Coast of the United States. In addition to telling the story of 16th century exploration, the park is home to a wealth of cultural and natural resources, including tidepools teeming with life and the historic Old Point Loma Lighthouse.
