The original Point Loma Lighthouse is a historic lighthouse located on the Point Loma peninsula at the mouth of San Diego Bay in San Diego. It is situated in the Cabrillo National Monument. It was built in 1855. It is no longer in operation as a lighthouse but is open to the public as a museum. Visitors may enter the lighthouse and view parts of the living quarters there. Visitors are sometimes greeted by volunteer historical re-enactors.

The Mormon Battalion Historical Site is a visitor center in San Diego. The Mormon Battalion was the only religiously based unit in US military history, and it served from July 1846 to July 1847 during the Mexican-American War. The battalion was a volunteer unit of about 534-559 Latter-day Saints men. During its service, the battalion made a grueling march nearly 2,000 miles long from Council Bluffs, Iowa, to San Diego. At the site is exhibits and a 40 minute free tour.
