“Inspiring, sweeping views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

It's hard to imagine that seeing row upon row of white crosses on graves would have an emotional impact on you, but it surely does. Park and walk around and look at the dates on the markers - some go way back. At sunset, this place is even more beautiful with the sun peeking through the trees. Be sure to go on to the Cabrillo National Monument just down the road. The view looking back at the city from the left side of the road if amazing.

“Spectacular setting for a National Cemetery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

The ocean views from this historic cemetery on Point Loma makes Fort Rosecrans one of the most beautiful of all the national cemeteries I have visited. The cemetery dates back to the days when California was still a territory.

“Gives a different perspective to San Diego”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

A short drive from the centre of town, this military cemetery is situated on Point Loma, looking east to San Diego and west over the Pacific.

It is a quiet and contemplative location. The cemetery is beautifully maintained and a fitting resting place for military personnel.

“God would choose this site for a second Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

On a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean the tranquility is something you can feel, peaceful and beautiful. The area is pristine and groomed at all times. This is fitting resting site for our brave men and women.
