The Point Cabrillo Lighthouse in northern California cast its light over the craggy cliffs of the Mendocino coast for the first time in June 1909, and the still-working lighthouse has been carefully restored as part of the Point Cabrillo Light Station.
Now a state historic site, the light station welcomes day visitors. Tour the restored lighthouse, the Lightkeeper's Home and Museum, and visit the native Pomo Indians exhibit at the Farmhouse Visitor Center.
And after the day trippers leave, you have 300 acres of nature preserve all to yourself. Watch the boats and passing whales and dolphins, dazzling sunsets and then a starry sky with no city lights to interfere.
