Coronado, CAHomes for Sale and Neighborhoods
Friday Night Fun
Start the evening with a casual stroll through Spreckles Park for some outdoor music and people watching. Then hit the town for a fun Italian dinner out on First Street. Finish the night at Lamb's Players Theatre catching some local entertainment. Or, if you are in the mood for some romance, rent a gondola and take a ride through the Coronado Cays at sunset and picnic at the Coronado Cays Park afterwards.
The Perfect Sunday
Grab brunch with some friends in Downtown and then head to Silver Strand State Beach for a game of volleyball and some people watching. Then go for a bike ride along Bayshore Bikeway and you might even catch a glimpse of some Navy training activities along the way. Or, live like a tourist for the day and visit the Hotel Del Coronado for their famous brunch and walk around the lobby and soak in the rich history the resort has to offer.
Where to Live
For those who want more of a city feel, the village is full of great places to live that are within walking distance of downtown restaurants and shops. Between Silver Strand Beach and the Hotel Del Coronado on Avenida Del Mundo lies the Coronado Shores Condos, which are 10 story high rises right on the sand and adjacent from Glorietta Bay. If you don't mind a little congestion and crowds, this location is prime realty. For boaters or families who enjoy a slower pace, the Coronado Cays are close to the beach but also have docks and parks and even their own yacht club.
Where to Eat
Coronado Island boasts a vibrant culinary season with fine dining and local fare to fit any budget. Upscale restaurants with beach and bay views can be found along the bay and harbor and feature all types of cuisine from French to Japanese. Orange Avenue and First Street are lined with charming cafes, family pizza joints and plenty of Italian restaurants.
What You'll See
Tourists line the streets of the downtown village area while the silver strand is full of active young people riding bikes and playing on the sand. The Cays attract the more sophisticated boaters and golfers and those that are looking for an afternoon stroll with their dogs.

Plenty of service men and women are seen around town too thanks to the Naval Air Station.
