The Central San Diego city of Coronado (“Crowned”) is a conservative and prestigious city occupying a strip of land jutting upward from Imperial Beach. This peninsula covers almost 8 square miles and practically encloses the San Diego Bay. At the northernmost end of the peninsula is North Island Naval Complex.

Coronado sometimes goes by the erroneous name Coronado Island. Another common nickname is The Crown City, an Anglicization of the Spanish name. The Coronado area can be accessed by heading north on Route 75 from Imperial Beach or by crossing the approximately 2-mile San Diego-Coronado Bridge from downtown. Ferry services are also available.

Coronado has been a resort city since its inception in the 1880s. Like La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe, Coronado is one of the most expensive residential areas in the country. It has been home to many notable figures over the years, and many more celebrities have visited. Most residences get a view of either the ocean or the bay, and lots are usually peppered with palm trees. Streets and lots are carefully planned.

Coronado has a hugely successful tourism industry, generating income through lodging, restaurants, and upscale shops, particularly along Orange Avenue. Coronado Beach is a highly-rated beach, and the Hotel del Coronado is a famous resort and historic landmark. Because of Coronado’s popularity with visitors, community events and celebrations are common and popular.
