//ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: trav.palosverdes.xxxx– 02/18/15 – ED CRISOSTOMO, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER- Wayfarer’s Chapel and Point Vicente Lighthouse. This is one of my favorite day trip getaways, and it’s really close, though it feels really far. The Point Vicente Lighthouse is adjacent to the Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Rancho Palos Verdes and maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard. It was built in 1926 and decommissioned in 1975. Tours are available on the second Saturday of each month. The City acquired this property from Los Angeles County through a grant deed in May 2004. This 10.5-acre site features a paved parking lot, a restroom building, an improved trail to the shoreline, and incredible Catalina and ocean views. 

You don’t have to be religious to appreciate the architectural beauty of the Wayfarers Chapel, which was designed by Lloyd Wright, Frank Lloyd Wright’s son.
