Coronado is a wealthy neighborhood that lies on a peninsula separating San Diego Bay from the Pacific Ocean. It is comprised of three basic parts: a naval base on its western half, a residential area on its eastern half, and a long, thin strip of beach called the Silver Strand connecting it to the mainland.

What’s Cool About Coronado
The eastern residential portion of the peninsula is bookended by the Sea N Air Golf Course and the Coronado Municipal Golf Course. Shops can be found along the length of Orange Avenue, and a school, library, and park lie at the residential area’s center. Tidelands Park on the eastern coast includes a skate park, a playground, and grassy open spaces for sports. Coronado is famous for its gorgeous and extensive beaches, which run along the southern coast and continue for miles down the Silver Strand. Boating is also a common pastime in this neighborhood, and the Coronado Yacht Club offers racing and other events for its members. The Lamb’s Players Theatre consistently produces entertaining new plays. The famous red spires of Hotel Del Coronado are a landmark for visitors and residents alike. Celebrations for 4th of July and Christmas, as well as the Coronado Flower Show, are also held each year.
There are two ways to access Coronado by car: up the Silver Strand from Imperial Beach to the south, or via the iconic Coronado Bridge from the Downtown area to the east. Its residents are affluent, educated, and include a high proportion of retirees. The area’s homes are fairly large and very well-maintained. If a tranquil island-style atmosphere with easy beach access is a high priority, you can’t do much better than Coronado. By Gary Kent
