San Diego: Coronado Highlights Small Group Walking Tour

3. 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.

Our Tour Guide, Jennifer, provided an informative and light-hearted experience sharing her knowledge of Coronado. The weather was exceptional the day of the tour which made the entire time memorable. Coronado holds a special place in our hearts and it is our go-to vacation spot. We always look forward to spending time in the 'Crown' city.

I really liked it just because of the times that are two hours different from my local time and that's why I think I asked for the notion of time and I couldn't use a ticket, everything else was excellent!!

The GO City Pass worked great. I booked the zoo and the hop on hop off bus tour and everything worked great and was inexpensive. You could even do the bus tour two days in a row. I can only recommend the pass.

This was an excellent tour. We covered a lot of territory in seven hours. We especially liked Balboa Park and La Jolla. Our guide, Judy, was excellent. Would highly recommend.

Great! It's hard to fit all of the choices into our agenda but it was great to have, easy to use and very worthwhile.
