Just over the iconic Coronado Bay Bridge, across from the San Diego Bay, sits the picturesque, resort town of Coronado. This small, tree-lined peninsula, affectionately known as Crown City, boasts beautiful, white sandy beaches, near-perfect weather, and endless opportunities to take in the rich culture and history of this charming Seaside Village of Coronado.
The Seaside Village of Coronado has been a top vacation destination for Hollywood celebrities and families alike, in large part due to its idyllic location and abundance of picturesque scenery. Although it is just a short drive from downtown San Diego or a 15 minute ferry ride, you truly feel as if you are worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city-living.
With over 20 beautiful parks, 28 miles of beaches and 24 miles of paved trails, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities. Bike along the 16-mile San Diego Bay Shore or visit one of the world’s top-rated beaches, Coronado Beach, where you can enjoy gentle waves and sparkling Mica-infused sandy beaches. Spend an afternoon in Glorietta Bay, where you can kayak or paddleboard throughout the sheltered waters of the bay.
For those who love to sail, the Coronado Yacht Club has served the boating community for over 70 years, and includes a marina with direct access to both the Bay and open waters of the Pacific Ocean.
Take some time to explore the Ferry Landing on First Avenue, where you will find unique shops and amazing waterfront restaurants showcasing stunning views of the San Diego skyline, or venture down Orange Avenue and browse through some of the 100 boutiques and shops before grabbing a bite to eat at top-rated restaurants, including Brigantine and Miguel’s. And of course, be sure to stroll down Ocean Blvd, where you can find beautiful old-world mansions.
No trip to the Seaside Village of Coronado would be complete without visiting the beautiful Victorian beachfront masterpiece, Hotel Del Coronado. Check out the high-end hotel shops, dine on the beachfront terrace or simply walk through and read about this history filled hotel!
