Island – Coronado is a quick 15-minute
commute from the airport across the Coronado Bay Bridge.
A more relaxing ride is aboard the ferry. Hop on at
the Broadway Pier in downtown San Diego and cruise
across the harbor. Sit back and enjoy the splendid
views of North Island Naval Station, Coronado Bay
Bridge, and the city skyline.
Coronado means the “Crowned One”
and the Hotel Del Coronado is undoubtedly the queen
of the island. USA Today called it “one of the
top ten resorts in the world” and it lives up
to its reputation. The Del should be at the top of
the list of must-sees. If nothing else, just stand
back and spend a moment marvelling its architectural
Coronado beaches are uncrowded and unspoiled and
are a great place to relax and take in the views.
Travel Channel voted Coronado Beach
the second best beach in America and the #1 family
beach. Children will also enjoy Tidelands Park. It
offers playgrounds, a skateboard park, and ball fields.
However, beaches are only part of Coronado’s
Attraction. The city has museums, shops and
boutiques, theatres, a golf course, and concerts to
entertain visitors year-round.
A fun and easy way to see Coronado
is to take a walking tour. It’s an easy 90-minute
stroll through Coronado’s past and present.
Or if you prefer, take a bike ride. There are 15 miles
of pathways along the beach that offer spectacular
views for bicyclists, rollerbladers, and walkers.
For something more romantic take a gondola ride through
the canals and waterways of the Coronado Cays.
Whatever you decide to do in Coronado, it will be
unforgettable. And soon you’ll find yourself
wishing you could stay just one more day.
