“a moving experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

It is well worth a stop off here at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery (a California Historic Landmark) either on the way or returning from Point Loma.

The area covered is vast - just so many rows and rows of white stones in perfect formation. It is a very moving experience yet it also feels so tranquil. There are some benches to sit on to gather your own thoughts or to admire the beautiful views over the Pacific or the bay of San Diego.

“Wow! What a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Both my parents are buried there and everytime we go there the view and the setting take your breath away. Just up the road is the lighthouse another must see attraction. Once again, the view is spectacular.
