When it comes to living the dream, dreams don’t get much better than coming home to Coronado, San Diego.
Coronado, North Island, and the Silver Strand (which connects Coronado to the mainland) create San Diego Bay. Residents, therefore, enjoy both the waters of the Bay and the ocean surf.
The name Coronado means “crowned one,” and there are few ways the place doesn’t live up to its name. With the completion of the famous Hotel del Coronado in 1888, the island began its long history as a resort destination. By 1900, a “Tent City” was established for more modest vacationers, and the fun has continued as the island burgeoned into an established residential community with resort flair.
It’s also home to the Naval Air Station North Island, the Naval Amphibious Base Coronado, and a training center for Navy Seals, who one can often see training on the beaches in the distance. Therefore, it should come as no surprise the population is full of military men and women.
If you’re looking for great views, ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, a close-knit community, access to downtown, or everything in one, perfect package, Coronado Island is the place to be.
