Nicknamed the ‘Crown City,’ Coronado earns its regal title due to its majestic beaches, grand resorts and iconic vibe. Located just ten minutes from downtown San Diego, this amazing locale is reachable via a short ferry ride or drive over the Coronado Bridge, but you’ll feel like you’ve gone on a relaxing vacation a world away. We’ve put together a guide to family fun in the charming resort city––from beach-going to bike riding and summer concerts to the best eats and where to stay the night if you just can’t bring yourself to go home. Flip through our slideshow to plan a day or weekend to remember.

Time to Eat!

A short walk from the beach you’ll find good eats at Miguel’s Cocina or grab sandwiches at Park Place Deli on the way to the sand. Cool down with a scoop of locally made chocolate ice cream from Moo Creamery.

Bayside you’ll find good eats at the Coronado Brew Pub. Chomp down on fish and chips or a burger and brew. (There’s a kid's menu too!) Or grab a slice of pizza at the Village Pizzeria Bayside at the ferry landing and take in the beautiful views from the patio.
