The ladies in this Centre were a font of knowledge and guided us to a number of interesting options we would never have thought of doing before we visited them. If you visit this part, give them a call and you will not be disappointed.

We did get a great person that was helpful. He suggested things to do for both my husband and I...plus he suggested things that my high school son and college age son would also enjoy. He suggested many things that were free. Walk and stroll down the beach. Check out the Library. Concerts in the area...and also the bike rentals.... More

It's the Official Information Center for Coronado, a non-profit with volunteers who are there to help you find what you're looking. The best part is they have free maps of Coronado!

Right at the head of the beach and the Coronador Hotel, it's worth a stop to get your bearings and info to plan your time on the island. The folks inside really do a great job.

You definitely have to go through their mini museum of the history of Coronado. The lady at the front desk was so kind and a wealth of information as well. Loved seeing the old pictures and reading the history.

If you want to have a great visit to Coronado, you have to start here. The staff was so helpful in recommending things to do and places to eat. We could have stumbled around and had a good time, but I want to maximize our limited time here on the island. I would recommend taking 10 minutes to stop in,... More
