When you’re in San Diego, you must drive over the dramatic 2.1- mile San Diego- Coronado Bridge or ferry over to the beautiful “island” of Coronado.
You’ll be rewarded with spectacular views of the San Diego skyline and experience a quaint,
picturesque community that has shunned the hustle and bustle of larger cities to preserve a quieter, gentler way of live.

of other accommodation properties, including luxury resorts and family owned hotels and inns.

is lined with charming and historic buildings that house the award- winning Lamb’s Players Theatre, the Museum of History and Art in Corronado,
restaurants, boutiques, art galleries and shops.
Nearby Naval Air Station North Island was established on Coronado in 1911.
Still active with ships and aircraft arriving and provides a real- life glimpse into the daily
operations and training of U.S. Navy Aviation.
If you want to find some Seals, and we mean the U.S. Navy kind. Check out Coronado’s beaches in the
early morning hours when they can often be found training or jogging in formation.
Coronado is easily toured on foot, and bicycling is also recommended.
A walking tour on select day to some
of Coronado’s historic sites and homes originates from the Glorietta Bay Inn, the iriginal mansion of sugar baron John D. Spreckels .
Also, plan at least a few hours to browsw the shops at the Ferry Landing Marketplace along San Diego Bay.
