From its timeless charm, considerable naval base, picturesque beaches and historical landmarks, Coronado Island is known as one of San Diego’s finest cities. Whether you’re spending the day or visiting for longer, there is so much to see and do in Coronado that it’s no wonder many have laid their roots here.
Best known for it’s world-famous Hotel Del Coronado
It has drawn crowds for hundreds of years. Built in 1888, this icon was founded at a time when electricity was a novelty and was one of the largest buildings in the country to be electrified. A sight to be seen, especially during this time of year where you can sip on some hot cocoa while ice skate along the beach, stop in for an unforgettable dining experience accompanied by festive music, or find a seat to take in the spectacular light show.
Spend some time driving the streets, admire the old-world mansions that are filled with hundreds of years of history. Mann House or even L. Frank Baum’s home, the creator of Wizard of Oz, once said his inspiration for Emerald City was none other than The Hotel Del Coronado.
If that isn’t enough to captivate your attention
Take a stroll along Orange Avenue that is lined with shops, galleries and restaurants. Grab a bite at a number of bistros, such as Little Frenchie’s where you can sit on their patio enjoying a delicious croissant and latte or step into the The Henry that offers Gatsby-era elegance with a classic all-American cuisine. Oh, and don’t forget to take in the arts with a show at The Lamb’s Player Theater that offers an intimate experience. A magical city that lights up this time a year, but brings guests from afar all year round.
