Palos Verdes Point Vicente Lighthouse & Museum Tour, offered by the Los Serenos de Point Vicente docents, will take place on Saturday, June 21, 2014.  Palos Verdes homes owners will have the opportunity to enjoy a tour of the Point Vicente Lighthouse, which is not often open to the public, and view the Point Vicente Lighthouse Museum.   You will enjoy the beauty of the lighthouse which stands 67 feet tall and is one of the area’s jewels.  The lighthouse beam shines 185 feet high and can be seen twenty miles out over the ocean.  Point Vicente was named in 1790 by Captain George Vancouver in honor of his good friend, Friar Vicente of the Mission Buenaventura.  In 1979, the Point Vicente Lighthouse was added to the National Registry of historic sights.  After your tour, you can visit the native plant garden located adjacent to the museum.

This fun outing also includes an easy hike along the spectacular bluff top at the Vicente Bluff Reserve.  You will enjoy the beautiful view of our Palos Verdes coastline on your quiet, peaceful walk.  The group will  meet at 10:00 a.m. at the parking lot next to the Point Vicente Interpretive Center located at 31501 Palos Verdes Drive West in Rancho Palos Verdes 90275.
