Editorial Review of
When seen from the San Diego mainland, Coronado seems a far-off, magical kingdom, surrounded by the glittering sea and flag-like sailboats. Accessible only by ferry or by the picturesque, arching blue Coronado bridge, the one-of-a-kind city sits on its own exclusive island. Because space is limited, real estate prices are high, and the community enjoys a high standard of living resulting in paramount business districts. Standing as the centerpiece for the island, the immaculate and iconic Hotel Del Coronado serves as both a sightseeing opportunity and a world-class hotel. The Hotel Del is also home to a beautiful beachfront restaurant and bar, allowing both visitors and guests to get a taste of the good life. While the island is chiefly famed for its historic Hotel Del Coronado, visitors and residents alike enjoy top restaurants, boutiques, galleries, and a beach ranked second in the country by the Travel Channel. A romantic evening for two or even an early sunrise brunch are the best ways to gaze at the gorgeous surroundings offered to visitors by this private, low-key island. Take a day trip and get to experience one of San Diego?s less occupied beaches, inviting you to spread out and soak up all the sun you can handle. Don?t be afraid to rent a bike, or bring one of your own, as lengthy strips of shoreline are made into easily conquerable trails with unparalleled views.
