After a couple days downtown we wanted a change of scene, without a hassle or big expense. So glad we took the 5:30 pm ferry to Coronado. It had been a hot day and getting out onto the water with its sea breeze was delightful...More

We took the ferry to Coronado from San Diego. The ride was short and smooth. The kids enjoyed seeing the sea lions and all the big ships. The schedule is very convenient. Not crowded, even on the weekend
The ferry itself is very inexpensive as a means to travel to Coronado and a great way to see the skyline of San Diego. Beware of the hype for the Coronado Ferry Landing shopping area though. For the "shopping" they have, it is mostly tourist...More

We took the ferry on 5th avenue San Diego over to Coronado by day. Very easy and efficient set up.
There is a walk around the headland past the golf course from here.
The ferry fee was approx USD 9 return.

Are you planning to take the ferry FROM Coronado or TO Coronado? If taking it from Coronado, you should have no problem parking in the large parking lot that serves the shopping plaza. It is free. The ferry leaves from the edge of the shopping center.
If, however, your departure point is San Diego, then that ia a bit more challenging. Any parking in San Diego is difficult to find and pricey.
The closest parking is the Convention Center and the cost is between $15 and $35 for the day. If you don't mind a little walk, try parking at Seaport Village shopping center. The costs are as follows:
Monday - Thursday: Validated self-parking: $5 for the first 3 hours or part thereof; $3 every 30 minutes thereafter or part thereof. Validation with a minimum $10 purchase. Non-validated self parking: $8 per hour or part thereof.
Looks like the Convention Center is the closest and probably the best option. There are some lots behind Petco Park but the neighborhood borders a transitional section (large segment of homeless population).
Maybe you'll be fortunate enough to say on the Coronado side (I love it there). In case you did not know (as I did not know), the Coronado Bridge is free as the bond measure to pay for it has long since been paid off. The views are pretty amazing along the drive over the bridge.

It’s about 1/2 a mile walk. Easy day. I would recommend you exit the ferry and head towards the Hilton, then use the foot bridge over the road and rail road tracks. It’s a nice view and not that much more of a distance.
