This was my second trip and I went back for the amazing view. The visitor center and lighthouse are fine but the panarama of the bay and downtown San Diego are great.

It's a beautiful and quiet memorial. A definite must see if you're in San Diego. We went a few times and it was beautiful each time.

Beautiful grounds, museum, light house, military cemetery. There are trails all over here, and outstanding views. We only had about an hour, but I would have loved to hike all day.

Aside from the spectacular views, there is some hiking, a lighthouse, statues, gardens, a couple museums and an old bunker to explore. It was a beautiful day trip.
