The grand Hotel del Coronado was the creation of the founders of Coronado and to many, perhaps their greatest, because when it opened in 1888, it became the landing spot for American heroes, Presidents, Princes, movie stars and more of the rich and famous. Starting with Benjamin Harrison in 1891, 10 Presidents have visited the Hotel del Coronado. Celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and athletic heroes like Babe Ruth have also stayed at the Del.

Just steps away from the Hotel del Coronado is the exquisite Coronado Beach. Located on the Ocean side of Coronado Island, it’s the ideal setting to surf, swim or snooze in the sun. Voted the # 2 beach in America and the # 1 family beach, the pretty white sands and refreshing ocean waters attract both locals and tourists. It’s a great place to relax, play and watch the sun as it sets over the Pacific. There’s much to do, from beach volleyball to whale watching in the winter months. And because of its location, views of San Diego are panoramic.
