Open from 7am to 10pm

The beautiful red brick steps lead to a platform in which a 005 Mt Soledadblack fence surrounds a perfectly structured white cross that can be seen for miles.  The path around the base is covered in Memorial Plaques of United States Military Veterans included engraved photos and names of those who lost their lives fighting for our freedom.

Throughout the hilltop are several benches for those looking for a resting spot to soak in Sunny San Diego as well as a large grassy area for those toting a picnic lunch or the nigh time visitors who arrive just in time to star gaze.

006 Mt SoledadMt. Soledad is a place for tourists and locals.  It is a must see Memorial that is a short drive from downtown and close to a few beaches along the coast.  Many local bikers enjoy the scenic ride up to the top.  For those driving cars there is a good size parking lot just below the hilltop.

Go.
Take it all in.
You’ll thank me later.
