Put Your Best Foot Forward

Without a doubt, Coronado is a “walker’s paradise.”

For those who are counting, the island received a walkscore of 98 out of 100 from walkscore.com.

Stroll or Take a Tour

Anyone who strolls the quaint town will agree, as the island’s main street, Orange Avenue, features wide, pedestrian-friendly sidewalks and stretches all the way from the Hotel Del Coronado at one end to the San Diego Bay at the other.

Moseying down this iconic street, you’ll discover delightful mom-and-pop shops, classic cafes such as Night and Day (which opened in 1927), as well as Central Drug Store and Holland’s Bicycles, some of the city’s oldest businesses.

Tours

Try one of these fascinating walking tours to get in step with Coronado’s easy-paced lifestyle and to soak up a bit of the island’s history and charm:

  • The Coronado Historical Association offers a docent-led tour through the iconic Hotel del Coronado, a Victorian marvel that has been designated a California Historical Landmark and has hosted presidents, royalty and celebrities over the years.
  • The Coronado Heritage Walk is a promenade through the past where guests learn about the island’s famous residents, buildings and architectural sites; includes admission to the Coronado Museum of History & Art.
  • Join Coronado Touring for a guided walking tour of historic homes that give this “Crown City” its enchanting character, including the Duchess of Windsor cottage and the home where the Wizard of Oz was created.
  • Take a walk on the wild side with Loews Coronado Bay Resort on one of their fun and interactive nature walking tours, where guests can explore the rare plants, animals and birds at Silver Strand State Beach.
