Revisit History at the Hotel Del Coronado

One of the best features to Coronado is the world famous Hotel Del Coronado.

This Victorian style seaside hotel was established in 1888, and was easily one of the biggest and best hotels of that era.

Never a stranger to celebrities, the extraordinary hotel was hosted in the past by:

  • the infamous Marilyn Monroe,
  • the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

to name a couple!

Service – Service – Service!

Yes, the Hotel Del Coronado has some of the best service in California, along with breathtaking views of the San Diego area.

The restaurant here is one of the best around, and even if you aren’t staying at the resort, you can still enjoy a great meal.

Expensive — But Never Empty Coronado!

Even though the resort tasks your pocketbook, each and every year, thousands of people visit Coronado just to stay at this world class hotel. And yes, it’s that good!

What about the Coronado Ferry Landing?

The Ferry Landing adds greatly to what Coronado Island has to offer.

And, the Ferry Landing Marketplace offers you 30+ shops, restaurants, and art galleries.

You can walk around and check out what the marketplace has to offer, or maybe enjoy a visit to the Tidelands Park.

More to Do and See — Do I Walk? or Ride My Bike?

There are so many great places to walk, capture photographs and bicycle here, with awesome views of skyline San Diego.

At sunset, this is one of the best places to be with beautiful views and fine food.

The Beaches…

The Coronado Beach is located here of course, along the Travel Channel.

North of the beach there’s the Best Weekend Getaway Beach.

Even in the summer, the Coronado Beach isn’t crowded. This strand is extra wide so your family will find plenty of room to enjoy the splendors without wall-to-wall people.

Easy Walks..

From the Glorietta Bay Inn in Coronado, you can take a walking tour. On tours, you’ll experience everything the area has to offer.

This is a great way to learn more about this grand ole beach.

Or, if you like, you can let someone else do the driving and try a pedicab tour.

Finally, do what Jean & I did; We took the trolley car. With this ride, we jumped on and off as we pleased with our camera to capture moments in time!

Either way, you’ll find plenty to see and do. And, don’t expect to do it all in one day!
