  • Good place to pay homage to our veterans. Must vist at Christmas time when there are wreaths placed. Just down the road from Cabrillo National Park.  more »
  • I feel slightly bad rating the cemetery so high, but it is a beautiful and serene place. It was well laid out and is very well taken care of. You must drive through on the main road to get to Cabrillo...  more »

  • Definitely would make a stop here if you are visiting. Truly beautiful views but would recommend coming before 4PM to ensure you have some time to see the area before the park begins to close.
  • My dad loved fishing and the ocean. Ft. Rosecrans has mindblowing ocean views. A beautiful resting placeđź’™
