San Diego: Coronado Highlights Small Group Walking Tour

4. San Diego: Coronado Highlights Small Group Walking Tour

A trip to Coronado feels like you’re leaving behind the mainland for a dose of island living, but it’s not your typical beach town. Part resort, part Naval Base, part luxury homes for the rich, Coronado is many things to many people. Learn about the first military flying school located on the island, where sailors first learned to fly. Spy architectural gems, some of which employed the latest technology when built over a century ago. And you’ll hear what drew Charles Lindbergh, L. Frank Baum and Marilyn Monroe to this unique beach town. Pop into a local museum (subject to availability) to look at photos that bring these stories to life. Make a quick stop for a snack at a local eatery. It could be something sweet or something savory – depending on your mood – but whichever way you go, it will be locally made and delicious. Refreshed, take a stroll down to Star Park, where the “Wizard of Oz” house is located and then make your way to Coronado beach, one of the best in the country. On a clear day you can see all the way to Mexico! Stroll by multi-million dollar homes that line Ocean Blvd and you’ll hear about the people who once lived there, including the residents of the historic Spreckels Mansion. Your last stop will be at the world-famous, historic Hotel del Coronado. This icon is over 130 years old and is an American treasure, having hosted celebrities, dignitaries, and US presidents in its rooms. Take a tour around the grounds, finishing up just outside the spectacular Crown Room (home to a luxe Sunday brunch). From here, you’re free to explore on your own or stroll back down Orange Ave. to where the tour began. Your guide will make suggestions on what else to see and do, give you tips on where to eat and shop and let you know the times for the next shuttle or ferry.

What people are saying about Coronado

Easy location to find . Parking adjacent to the location (well highlighted by GetYourGuide). Sailed on time , and a live and nice commentary during the “informative” journey . Nice chairs / seating on deck, with some snacks to buy in the lower floor . A nice well organized one . I liked it .

It was worth the money! The boat was a little outdated on the inside but the experience was nice. I think they should include the pictures at the end in the package since they just toss the ones that people don’t buy. Over all I had a great time

Jennifer was the BEST guide. She made the tour specific to our interests which never happens. She was sooo knowledgeable!!! Great experience!!!!

Overall great price for the tour. The information by our tour guide about the harbor and San Diego was great. Must do.

Good opportunity to see alot of San Diego in a short time - at your own pace
