“Unexpected Surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We just happen to be driving around before heading to the airport and we came across this cemetery. It is breathtaking - both the cemetery and the views! It overlooks San Diego Bay and the city of San Diego including great views of downtown and Coronado Island all on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. Very peaceful place as there were few people there. I nice getaway from the crowded San Diego beaches and traffic. Worth a quick visit if you have time in SD!

“Stop in and pay your respect ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

The cemetery is a moving place. A final resting place for hero's over looking the beautiful ocean in San Diego. It is a moving site and I was glad that I happened upon it.

Just stop in before going to Loma Point Lighthouse.

“Serene, Nice √iews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

A nice Navy/Military-style cemetery with a uniform headstone aligned arrangement and a great view of downtown San Diego. The cemetery is pretty good-sized and it is a typical cemetery for this type. I have heard rumors that this place is haunted, but no evidence to substantiate those claims. A worthwhile visit.

“Beautiful place to pay respect and reflect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

Fort Rosecrans is a beautifully laid out cemetery that provides both views of the city to the east and panoramic views of the Pacific to the west. Great place to take in the sunset.
