Established in 1855, the Point Bonita Lighthouse was the second lighthouse on the Pacific Coast of the United States. (The first was the lighthouse on Alcatraz.) Although it’s only open nine hours a week, the Point Bonita Lighthouse is one of the lesser known sights of San Francisco. While I was lucky enough to see the gorgeous view of the San Francisco skyline from Point Bonita last spring, I didn’t get to visit the light house until my trip last August. It was worth the wait!
