Best Things to Do
Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial
At 823 feet, Mount Soledad is an iconic site in La Jolla, rising up with panoramic views of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar to the east, and downtown San Diego and Coronado Island to the south.
There's La Jolla Village and the Pacific Ocean to the west, and La Jolla State Natural Reserve and other points of San Diego County to the north. Marked with a cross at its peak, the Mount Soledad Veterans Memorial pays homage to all branches of the U.S. Military throughout the past and present wars. Erected in 1954, the cross at the top of the memorial has been controversial as a conflict between church and state.
On January 29, 1930, Anne Morrow Lindbergh obtained her First Class Glider's Pilot License in a Bowlus Model A Albatross sailplane at Mt. Soledad, the first woman to do so and only the 10th person in the U.S. She followed her husband "Lucky Lindy" Captain Charles A. Lindbergh by one year. What looks to be very high up is actually a short drive from downtown La Jolla. Those who are looking for a challenge can ride bikes to the top via steep, winding roads.
