Stop and make visits on both sides of the road. On the one side you will overlook the San Diego Bay and on the other you overlook the Pacific ocean. Both have equal but very different views.

The view of all those headstones, makes one appreciate just how many men and women have served our country. It is hard to visit without shedding a few tears. FYI it can be cold, because it is above the ocean, so bring a jacket.

It is amazing to see how many lives were lost to war. A very powerful view, even to drive by, to remember what was lost to have the rest of us gain.

I have in-laws buried here. It is peaceful place and a beautiful place to walk around - great views, and monuments. It is a nice drive on your way to the Cabrillo Light House which happened this day due to the government shut down.

It is amazing to see how many men and women who spent their time in the US army/air/navy. All of the stone are lined up in order. If you have any family that were in the service it is a must see.

A beautiful and peaceful place on the coast with over 100,000 souls buried on the hills. Amazing views of the tombstones of our soldiers. God bless our heroes!
