Coronado is top rated on the country’s list of best beaches; Its wide shores never make the beach feel overcrowded. It is easily walkable and the weather is practically perfect. Hop on the ferry, or simply drive from San Diego to reach Coronado. This wealthy peninsula has the feel of a resort town with the amenities that come from being near a major city. The red-roofed Hotel del Coronado is the best place to visit. Back in town, grab a quick meal or go to MooTime Creamery for some yummy
frozen treats. Coronado is also home to a naval base. Here, you can spot fighter jets coming in for landings and submarines surfacing off the coast.
