Hands up if you are based in or around Point Loma? Well, we have some good news for you! Dance to EvOLvE classes – ranging from ballet to hip-hop take place in not one but two Point Loma locations. We are currently offering outdoor classes at the Basketball Court in NTC Park until the end of October when the situation will be revalued, as well as at indoor classes at The Dancehouse.
Wondering what to do with your little dancers after class? We have some great ideas to keep the whole family occupied and entertained. Read on for our guide to the best things to see and do in Point Loma.
FOUR THINGS TO SEE AND DO IN POINT LOMA
This 68-acre park, known for its towering sandstone cliffs and untouched vegetation, is the ideal spot to drink in views of the Pacific Ocean at any time of day. However, as the park’s name implies, sunset is a popular time to visit and watch the sun do its incredible sinking thing. When in Point Loma, be sure to stop off at these cliffs.
Cabrillo National Monument
Learn about San Diego’s Spanish roots at the Cabrillo National Monument. Established in 1913, the monument commemorates Spaniard explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo discovery of Point Loma in 1542.
Short films together with a ranger offer interesting insights into his history at the visitor centre. Then stroll to Old Point Loma Lighthouse. This landmark has been restored to reflect what lighthouse life was like for lightkeepers and their families in the 1800s.
Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern
When hunger pangs kick in, make for Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern. Affectionately known as J-Fat’s, this place specializes in American comfort food. Think juicy burgers (including plant-based burgers for those eschewing meat), fish tacos, and cherry cobbler. There is a dedicated children’s menu for your little dancers. Views of the marina from every seat are the icing on the cake.
Humpreys Half Moon Inn
Want to catch a concert? Head to Humphreys Half Moon Inn which hosts Humphreys Concerts by the Bay, San Diego’s premier outdoor concert series. Every May through October, nationally renowned acts take the stage in this unique concert venue nestled between the hotel’s private marina and tropical gardens.
