Welcome to Coronado, California, also known as the "Crown City." This resort city sits on a stretch of pure white sand across San Diego Bay from the city of San Diego. Coronado hotels have been popular since the late 1800s, with movie stars, politicians, and regular folk alike. Take advantage of this golden climate with moderate temperatures and sunny skies year-round by jumping on one of the many flights to San Diego and heading across the bay to Coronado.
Out and About in Coronado
Coronado is nearly an island, connected to the mainland through a thin land bridge called the "Silver Strand." Because of its climate and its proximity to San Diego Bay, Coronado vacation packages are popular. The beach areas are flat – you can easily run or walk barefoot through miles of bright white sand, passing hotels in Coronado as you go. During your run, you may see the hull of a sunken ship if you come by at low tide. If you prefer your fun out on the water, choose from surfing, boat tours, and jet skiing. Why not take a standing paddleboard lesson? It's all the rage. For a more relaxed experience, sign up for a gondola ride that glides through the cays. Or jump on a harbor tour and marvel at the sparkling San Diego coastline from the water.
Eating and Drinking
Due to its proximity to Mexico, locals love the wide selection of Mexican food popular in the region, including fish tacos, carne asada fries, and enchiladas. Stroll down Orange Avenue in the downtown district. Before a theater show, get some authentic wood-fired California pizza. Healthy eaters will love the selections of fresh fruits and vegetables, including olives, pomegranates, strawberries, and melons. Wash it all down with a local wine or some sweet apple cider that's produced on nearby mountains on the mainland. There is a wide variety of hotels on Coronado for every budget, and Travelocity can help you save up to $537 when you book your hotel and flight at the same time.
