This is a must see place in San Diego. Wonderful beach view and green every where.
Coronado is by far the most breathtaking place to visit in San Diego.
The beaches stretch on for miles, and the views are amazing from every part of the island, some to the city, some to the wide open ocean.
The downtown part is nice, plenty of good shopping and restaurants, however I would recommend having lunch in any of the ocean view restaurants to enjoy the marvelous view

I'm probably prejudiced because I love architecture, but I really enjoyed the walking tour. We started in the Visitor Center Museum, saw the Wizard of Oz house, heard lots of history of some of the people who built. Lovely Craftsman, Tudor, Victorian homes. Some business buildings looking Italianate or Romanesque. The guide was articulate & knowledgeable and had pictures
of what the area looked like in different time periods. We had lots of questions and she was able to answer them well. The only thing is I would have liked to have gone inside the Del instead of just around the grounds since it has been decades since I was there for a dinner party.

If you have already visited some of the other beach towns in the area, there isn't anything special to recommend Coronado. A local store owner even said she takes her out of town guests to ride the trolley in San Diego instead. Wish we had just done this. We definitely enjoyed Carlsbad much more.

Beautiful day in Coronado but horrible walking tour. Our tour guide walked way too fast, 3 people had to drop out of the tour. She apologized but did not change her pace or offer a refund. The tour guide was very opinionated about Hotel Del. She made remarks "like a Disneyland" and voiced that kids should not be allowed in the Crown Room for Sunday Brunch. She commented on the million dollar condo (Coronado Cays) and the jets flying over dropping jet fuel on them. She even remarked about some "yahoo" who installed a brick fence, impeding the growth of a tree on the street where "Wizard of the Oz" author lived.

I never realized the history of San Diego & Coronado was so fascinating! This 90-120 minute guided walking tour begins in the Music Room of the Glorietta Bay Inn (across the street from The Hotel del Coronado). Our guide was very enthusiastic, entertaining & knowledgeable. She had photos from the very early years of Coronado. After 1/2 hr of information & photo sharing in the music room we began our walking tour across the street through The Dell and then along the water. Did you know the raised sand dunes spell Coronado? It was a very interesting guided tour through the historic streets with beautiful homes in Coronado.
The tour was Tues, Thurs & Sat at 11 pm. Our tour on a Sat early June was not crowded.
