Coronado Charm

September 6th, 2012

We spent last weekend in San Diego, stopping by several of our favorite places while in town.  We visit the area at least once a year since we have family and friends that live there and it’s one of our most favorite places to relax and soak up some So Cal sunshine.

One of the most charming places to stop is just outside downtown San Diego, the small city of Coronado with its famous Hotel del Coronado.

To get to Coronado Island, you take the bridge and along the way you get a great view of the downtown San Diego skyline.

The Hotel Del is a beautiful Victorian structure that draws visitors from around the world.
