The Lighthouse Road Trip near San Francisco That’s Dreamily Beautiful

You may not immediately associate lighthouses with San Francisco, but think again. We mapped out this lighthouse road trip to some of the most picturesque lighthouses in the area. Exploring this trip will bring you closer to the sea, nature, and of course our history in California. And believe it our not, you’ll be shocked to see lighthouses near famous attractions. Also, one of the lighthouses is on an island, so it is optional. The road trip is a long full day trip, so you will probably want to start early for the trip.

If you want to see footage of one of the lighthouses then watch this video by YouTube user
