Coronado, also known as Coronado Island, is an affluent, family-friendly city in San Diego County and is located across from downtown San Diego and helps form the San Diego Bay. Access to Coronado Island is done via the historic 2.12 mile-long San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge which was built in the late 1960s or via Coronado Ferry or San Diego Water Taxi to-and-from downtown San Diego. A smaller city, Coronado Island has a total area of 32.7 square miles and 24.7 of which is water.
Coronado Island is vibrant city full of history, sailors, tourists and locals….
Coronado Island’s history began in 1885 when a vision was put into play to establish “the grandest hotel on the Pacific Coast” set aside a master-planned community with residences, businesses and avenues. For years the Hotel Del Coronado and the Coronado Island community would grow together to form the coast’s largest hotel nestled in a down-home, small-town-feel community.
In 1911, aviator Glenn Curtiss experimented with his seaplane invention. Shortly after his success with the seaplane he recommended to the US Navy to establish its first aircraft squadron making Naval Air Station North Island the “Birthplace of Naval Aviation”; inevitably the area has also become known as a Navy town.
With the Hotel Del Coronado as the trail blazers tourism is an essential part to the Coronado economy with 15 hotels (three of which are world class) and 71 acclaimed restaurants all amidst a year-round nearly-perfect climate. The historic hotel has had many notable American guests including past and present presidents, kings, movie stars and professional athletes.
There is an abundance ways to enjoy Coronado Island including but not limited to: cycling, action sports, spa getaways, aquatic and beach adventures, a day at the dog beach, golf, shopping, tours, farmers markets and fun for the whole family at any one of Coronado’s 19 parks.
