Island Style : Coronado

I had the pleasure of spending 5 blissful days on this Escape from San Diego in early July.
We attended a reunion (my husband is a native), and had a chance to really soak in the breathtaking scenery & colors.

I'd almost forgotten the abundance of natural beauty, and all the other positives to Coronado Island, especially for planning a wedding from near or far...

Perfect Weather year round
Hotel Room Availability - B & B's , Timeshare Rentals, Four Star Hotels
Clean, Safe & Family Friendly
Walk & Bike Friendly City
Easy access from Downtown San Diego Airport
North Beach

There's always the tried & true staples to visit:

Hotel Del Coronado
Moo Time

Coronado Florist
Miguel's Cocina
Coronado Brewing Co.
The Brigantine
McP's

I was pleasantly surprised to see a few darling new offerings too:
Seaside Papery
Offering custom design invitations; including two North County designers: elum & Delphine

Several new restaurants, including Village Pizzeria & the Beach-n-Diner, both on Orange Ave.

Hotel Del Coronado has also expanded, with new rental homes on their property.



Pretty pricey at $20k per week, for a 3 bedroom 2 bath, but this is your evening view...



Coronado is a little piece of heaven, whether planning a once in a lifetime event, or just looking to get away from it all.

Go Islanders!
