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.

Farmer’s Market & Summer Concerts

Head to the Ferry Landing for the Farmer's Market on Tuesdays or to listen to a free concert on the weekend. Another option is Spreckels Park Summer Series. You'll find that the park is large and offers many places for the wee ones to run around and have fun. Tote a blanket and bring a picnic basket full of lunch and goodies.
