Bike, admire views, or delve into history at Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial. The most famous of hill's residents was Dr. Seuss (aka children's book author Theodor Seuss Geisel), whose house is at the top. Switch gears, and pay your respects to war veterans at a Korean War memorial that resides nearby. Erected in 1913, the 8.8 m (29 ft) tall concrete cross has a controversial past and faces an uncertain future. However, the 251 m (822 ft) tall hill's many roads and light traffic primarily make it a popular cycling spot. You can opt for long and gradual climb or go for a short, steep uphill sprint. Note that cycling up the hill may be tricky on a windy day, and murky weather may obstruct the views. To visit Mt.

Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial reviews
Mt. Soledad is a great place for me to go when I want to Praise and Worship God, pay silent Honor to the men and women of our military. Or just simply sit back and reflect on life. The view can humble you as you stand on the mountaintop and look out over the ocean until it meets the sky. It's an amazing reality check for me.
Beautiful panoramic view of San Diego. This place is good to visit with family and/or friends... Lovely place to find some peace.
