This graceful Stick Style Victorian building in San Pedro, CA, is surrounded by colorful flower gardens. Designed by Paul J. Pelz, a draftsman for the US Lighthouse Board, it is one to the oldest lighthouses on the west coast. It was built in 1874 with lumber from California redwoods and served as an aid to safe passage between the Channel Islands and into the harbor for nearly one hundred years. The land for the lighthouse was donated by Jose Diego Sepulveda. Website

Westfield Horton Plaza is an outdoor, five-level mall, located on six and a half city blocks, next to the Historic Gaslamp Quarter in the center of San Diego. It features some of the most unique architecture you will ever see in a shopping center. Horton Plaza jump-started the Gaslamp renaissance when it opened in August 1985. It was designed by Jon Jerde, named for the founder of San Diego Alonzo Horton and was developed by the Hahn Company.
