Tour one of California’s most famously beautiful neighborhoods on a Coronado Island Daytrip!
Cross the San Diego Bay on a ferry with Coronado Island Daytrip tickets! San Diego enjoys worldwide fame for its zoo, wild animal park, and aquarium. But, local Californians know there’s a lot more to S.D. than its flashy, big name attractions. San Diego is divided up into several trendy and diverse neighborhoods. And, they all have something different to offer and are worth a visit during any San Diego vacation. But, one of the best things to do in San Diego is to cross the bay and explore the neighborhoods on Coronado Island.
Hop on the ferry and get a new perspective on San Diego from the waters of San Diego Bay! Enjoy spectacular views of the Coronado Bridge! Then, once on Coronado Island, head down Orange Avenue into the center of town. An extremely quaint and sleepy town center plays host to a number of upscale restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and an incredibly popular ice cream parlor. Grab a cone before heading towards Coronado Beach! It’s what to do in San Diego!
On the way to Coronado Beach, you might be struck by the sheer size of some of the houses. Coronado is home to some pretty wealthy people; but, it also has a lot of interesting history, too! Check out the “Wizard of Oz House” near Star Park. It’s the house where L. Frank Baum wrote 3 of his books from the Oz series. Look from the wicked witch peeking out at you! Then, learn who lives in several of these multi-million-dollar mansions as you make your way to the famous Hotel del Coronado!
Known locally as the Hotel Del, this beautiful San Diego attraction has maintained a 4-star rating for nearly 125 years! Presidents, celebrities, and the extremely wealthy would take cross-country train trips just to stay at the Hotel del Coronado during their San Diego tours. And, as the second largest wooden structure in the United States, it still draws visitors from around the world to spend the night in the hotel that ushered in the era of the luxury resort! You’ll get to explore the grounds before ending the tour outside the Crown Room, a lavish Sunday Brunch facility. What you do from there is up to you!
