This monument is humbling as you walk around and read the plaques given by veterans' families. Be sure to look for Bob Hope, Audie Murphy, Jimmy Stewart, and other famous individuals as well as just reading some names of ordinary people who served our nation....More

Nice views of San Diego but nothing compared to Cabrillo or La Jolla. This is a war memorial, so it is somber.

Would venture to come here. 360 degree view of La Jolla and San Diego. Overcast so fair visibility. Great memory to the men and women who served the US.

Despite the controversy over religious symbols, this is a peaceful and beautiful place to visit. You get an almost 360 degree view of San Diego

Mt. Soledad is a War Memorial. It's sits on top of a hill that overlooks all of San Diego. You can view plaques of Service Men and Women. All branches are represented. Bring a camera.

The memorial is worthwhile, but the five stars are for the panoramic views of San Diego, which are exceptional.

Quick easy drive up the hill from La Jolla. Fantastic view 360 degrees. Monument is beautiful and has names and pictures of veterans. Fun drive through neighborhood. Parking ample a short walk down hill from the top.

The slope up is pretty gentle and yes, it is accessible from all 360 degrees, however there are stairs to get to the foot of the cross itself. You wont be disappointed tho, its breathtaking
