A giant cross stands as the Soledad Cross in remembrance of the War Veterans of the USA. The memorial consists of veteran plaques which honour each person who has participated in the war on behalf of the US. It also acts as a registry of all the people who have fought in the war. Their names and backgrounds have been proudly displayed at this place.
Interestingly, the Mount Soledad cross has been subject to much controversy over the years. The cross which is a Christian symbol has been objected to by many as being a symbol of religion instead of the brave people which it aims to honour. Nevertheless, it is a very important place that honours bravery, loyalty and courage and you should visit it if you want to take in an atmosphere of tremendous pride for the united states.

Mt. Soledad Cross Reviews & Ratings
Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial is Special The ocean view to the west is lovely and soothing. Hills and mountains eastward loom hazily in the distance. This is a place to take a moment reflecting on the service and sacrifice of veterans whose memorial plaques grace the walls surrounding the centerpiece Veterans Memorial Cross. My late husband, a military veteran, proposed to me here. Feel the wind off the Pacific Ocean, treasure the beautiful memories enshrined here atop one of the highest spots in San Diego County.
There was a long legal fight for this cross. Because this land is now in private ownership the cross stays. Underneath are hundreds of photos of military family members who honorably served this country. Some , you have to find them, are also famous. Jimmy Stewart, Audie Murphy, Eisenhower. The view of the Pacific Ocean, Mission Bay, are fantastic.
Great place to see a 360 view of San Diego. On clear days you can see Mexico and as far San Clemente in Orange County. Great place to ride your bike as well any good and safe roads lead to the Soledad Park and Veterans Memorial
Mt. Soledad is a great place for me to go when I want to Praise and Worship God, pay silent Honor to the men and women of our military. Or just simply sit back and reflect on life. The view can humble you as you stand on the mountaintop and look out over the ocean until it meets the sky. It's an amazing reality check for me.
One of the best spots to enjoy a beautiful view and pay respects. Also, a great spot to take anyone visiting to let them experience a view of San Diego area.
