I have in-laws buried here. It is peaceful place and a beautiful place to walk around - great views, and monuments. It is a nice drive on your way to the Cabrillo Light House which happened this day due to the government shut down.

It is amazing to see how many men and women who spent their time in the US army/air/navy. All of the stone are lined up in order. If you have any family that were in the service it is a must see.

This is a beautiful veteran's cemetary up high on rolling hills with water views all around. It's a peaceful setting for all of the fallen veterans who gave their life for our freedom.

The cemetery in of itself is a great tribute to our military and their families. Beyond the cemetery is the Pt.. Loma Lighthouse which has some of the best views of the shoreline, naval base, and the Pacific Ocean. The bay trail is our favorite....More

This is a place to go when you are feeling patriotic and grateful for all those who gave all they could to keep us free. While the solitude is not your run of the mill tourist attraction, it does provide quiet, private views of San...More
