    Visited the lighthouse. What a view!!! Beautiful, blue ocean as far as the eye can see. We even saw a whale! Super neat historic lighthouse. Just beware, the climb up is not for the faint of heart!!!  more »

    I love history especially Maritime. Pt. Reyes lighthouse is easy to get to and a nice mini vacay from the city. Lot's if places to stop and eat along the way. Be prepared for a long walk down and up to the lighthouse. This lighthouse was put there for a reason... it's super windy and super foggy. Dress on layers! Check out Good Earth grocery store in Fairfax on your way back!

    Definitely worth a shot! This is truly a gem in the middle of nowhere. On a really nice day, it's amazing to see the coastline and sometimes you might catch some whales passing by. Always look the weather as it might ruin the scene a bit. Bring food and water as it is quite somewhere interior from any store. Almost 25 miles away from the first store, plan accordingly. You won't regret! Go there! :)))

    Windy! Make sure to bring a jacket. Great views and informative park staff. Learned a lot about the lighthouse. Parking fills up so park on the side of the road when you see an opening.

    Beautiful scenic drive, rough road, however, if driven a bit slower, it's ok. Was a gorgeous day for us, therefore, breathtaking 360 view! Brief walk from parking to lighthouse, well worth it for the great photo opportunity...
