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.

Bike the Island

Ready to roll? Rent bicycles or a surrey bayside at Bikes and Beyond. The surrey is fun with little bikers in tow. Helmets and a map are provided to explore the island. Or walk from the beach and wheel it around downtown and on the bike path by the Hotel Del at PeDels.
