Nice visitor center tucked in with a great restaurant and a museum. Always interesting to stop in and be sure to attend the talks they have from time to time.

We stopped here first before going to eat or visit the beach. They were so nice, offering us coupons, a list of eateries, and suggestions. We accepted coupons for Miguel's which was a couple of blocks away.

Great little museum to get some background history on Coronado--lovely antiques from the Del Coronado, and vintage clothing. Be sure to get any restaurant coupons at the desk--handy!

I saw online that the Coronado Visitor Center and History Museum were free. I have paid $$ and not been to a place as fabulous as this! They have fantastic interactive displays of Coronado history with an emphasis on boating and the Hotel Del Coronado. The woman working the desk was friendly and very helpful. I can't say enough good... More

There is an interesting history of Coronado in the Museum section of the visitors section. It also had an exhibition on the Kingston Trio when we were there. The staff recommend things to see around Coronado, that is why we saw the play, which was a very good idea.

While the Coronado Historical Society Tour requests you RSVP in advance, I was able to purchase a place the morning of from their office. We were lucky having MJ as our guide, she's friendly, fascinating, and knows just about everything about the Del, from the gardens' history to the hotel's infamous ghost. She answered every single one of our questions... More
