If you're in the area or stopping at the USS Midway, you have to stop at this large statue. You'll see several couples kissing in front of the statue.

Out on scooters and came upon this at night. Easy parking nice restaurant and very interesting . Open air fun picture taking. We had to make it back in the day time as well.

It was a humbling experience to stand in the shadow of this iconic statue while the USS Midway towered in the distance. Quite humbling.

I love this stature in Tuna park, it's right next door to the Uss Midway. Excellent view of the ocean and many boats. The stature reminds me of an old navy boyfriend I had when I was young, That is why I have a connection...More

This statute is right outside the USS Midway which is a very appropriate place to have it. It is truly a larger than life statue of the famous photo of the sailors coming back after WWII.

Very whimsical presentation of the reaction of many military personnel when World War II ended. Gives the young generation an opportunity to see the reaction to war’s end.

A beautiful sculpture to the side of the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum. The detail in incredible. A lovely dedication to the memorable photo and a nice photo op.

If you are in San Diego, this is a must see! We enjoyed everything in the harbor area. When there, go see the Bob Hope Memorial to the Armed Services!

This larger than life sculpture in front of the Midway never gets old - day or night. Great photo op!

You can see it from the USS Midway but it’s worth walking by it. Makes a beautiful picture on a San Diego sunset.

There is no entrance fee. There's a grassy spot and lots of people, I don't see why you couldn't bring your dog as long as it's on a leash.
