The Cabrillo National Monument in Point Loma is closed because of the government shutdown, according to an announcement on the National Park Service's website.

"Due to the lapse of appropriations and the subsequent shutdown of the federal government, Cabrillo National Monument is closed for the safety of visitors and park resources," the announcement says.
