san-diego-Point-LomaThe best known landmark in Point Loma, the Old Point Loma Lighthouse, is an icon occasionally used to represent the entire city of San Diego. This lighthouse is located within Cabrillo National monument which was discovered by Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo. Point Loma offers stunning ocean views from this highest point. The neighborhood is hilly and scenic and the area is also home to Naval Base Point Loma and Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. Original military barracks have been converted to a shopping center, Liberty Station, where the famous Corvette Diner has been relocated to, and there are many eateries such as Tender Greens and a wine bar, Wine Steals where guests can relax on the patio or enjoy wines at the indoor bar.

The bayside hills between Rosecrans Street and Chatsworth Boulevard north of Nimitz Boulevard are known as Loma Portal. A distinctive feature of this neighborhood is the location of street lights in the middle of several street intersections instead on the sidewalk. Loma Portal lies directly in the takeoff pattern for planes from Lindbergh Field, making it the home of the “Point Loma Pause” where all conversation ceases temporarily due to airplane noise. The east-west streets in Roseville and Loma Portal are known as the “alphabetical author streets”. The streets are named for authors in alphabetical order from Addison to Zola, with a second partial cycle from Alcott to Lytton.
