“Gorgeous views of the valley!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

This place is amazing when you get up to the top of the mountain. The area is very clean and the views are amazing from up there. We went when it was a bit foggy and the fog was below us (since we were really high up) but still clear enough to see the valley. It look like a post card!

“well worth it”

Fabulous views! I hiked up from the Cove. Quite a steep hike but lots of nice homes on the way.

“Good place for remembrance.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

360 degree view from this mount. Nice place to pay respect to the veterans who gave so much for those of us lucky to be able to visit this shrine. Great views of the area and a great place to pay homage and say a thankful prayer!

“Best views in San Diego!”

Cannot get a better view in San Diego and the drive up is fun - you pass a lot of beautiful home.

“Controversial Cross”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

Mount Soledad offers you the best views of the San Diego area. Unfortunately on the day of our visit we had a beautiful sunlit day, but the air was hazy over San Diego so not the best for picture taking on that day. It would have been great to see the view at sunset, but we didn't have the chance.

Besides the view, the major attraction is the veterans memorial. Before going it might be good to check out the memorial online to find out where, for example, President Reagan's memorial plaque can be found. At the heart of the memorial is a large cross. This has been under legal challenge for some time by those who feel it is unconstitutional. One can hope the cross will remain, but there is no guarantee. If you want to see it, don't keep putting it off.
