A mere two-mile drive from cosmopolitan, downtown San Diego, across one of the world's most distinctive bridges, is Coronado Island - a world away. Developed in 1888 as a beach resort town, and home to the famous Hotel del Coronado, the island is blessed with one of the finest beaches in the world and bathed in endless sunshine. Coronado today is a vibrant beach community loaded with charm.

Coronado Island and its hotel is not to be missed. Great dining and a lovely town to explore. Must try Restaurant 1500.

Coronado is a beautiful beach area with great shopping and restaurants. It's easy to park ( for free) and just enjoy the area. The hotels are beautiful and worth a walk through. It's a nice contrast to the hubbub of the city.
