On Saturday, June 22, 2013, Palos Verdes homes owners will be able to enjoy a day outside participating in an Oceanfront Estates Walk. This fun outing includes an easy 2.2 mile hike along the bluff of our beautiful Palos Verdes coast line where you will enjoy a quiet and peaceful walk along the ocean on a nicely maintained decomposed granite trail. 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.
This is a special walk because it also includes a visit to the Point Vicente Lighthouse. Here you can 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 for 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 Point Vicente Lighthouse Museum and the native plant garden.
