In San Diego, proceed south on Interstate 5 past Interstate 8 and on through the downtown “S” curve. Begin to get in the right lanes after passing the downtown area. Take the Coronado Bridge exit and proceed across San Diego bay on the bridge. Keep your speed down in Coronado (about 30 mph). Turn left on Orange Avenue and proceed south about two miles through the city. You’ll see the landmark Hotel Del Coronado on your right as you proceed through this quaint little beach community. After passing the Hotel Del proceed further south about three stop lights. You are on the Silver Strand (Highway 75). At the stop light immediately after the Rendova Road stop light you’ll make a left across the divided highway to a frontage road in front of the Naval Amphibious Base. Go south one block and turn left into the Main Gate of the base. Tell the gate guard that you are there to visit the Vietnam Unit Memorial at CISM Field. Proceed two streets to the east and turn right on Rendova. Proceed south two streets to the intersection of Rendova and Tulagi. The Memorial is on the Southeast corner of that intersection. Park on the street or in the parking lot immediately east of the Memorial and Small Boat Display if space is available.
