This national cemetery is one of the United States' best tributes to those individuals who have served in the military for the US. Their spirits must be very happy with the ocean view.

Even if you are not from the Area it is a place for meditation. Many entrances on both sides of road.

If you are traveling from out of town, take an hour and go up to Fort Rosecrans Cemetery. The view is stunning and offers the best view of both the ocean and the city! GREAT Picture taking opportunities.

I didn't think I would enjoy this location so much. It's beautiful and peaceful and well-maintained, befitting the military men and women buried here. You can walk as little or as much as you want.

Located near Cabrillo National Monument, this is a visually stunning place. I recommend getting out of your car and walking among the grave markers. You can appreciate the history and the folks that served in the military. A small glimpse of their lives.
