San Diego’s theme parks and zoos make it a popular family-friendly spot, but this city has more to offer than meets the eye. Coronado Island is one of the most astonishing day-trip attractions of San Diego Bay, and these three landmarks make it worth the visit.
Hotel del Coronado
This lavish hotel was the largest resort hotel in the world when it first opened in 1888. Over a century later, it no longer holds that title, but that doesn’t make it any less spectacular. Presidents, royals, and celebrities went through its doors, and it rightfully earned the status of Coronado Island’s most Instagram-friendly attraction.
San Diego Skyline
Coronado Island is located across from downtown San Diego, and that’s why it’s photographers’ dream. If you’re looking for the best possible shots of the city’s skyline, this is the place to be.
Another extremely popular attraction with photographers visiting this island is the historic lifeguard towers of Coronado Beach. Their blue and white color gives them a nostalgic quality and looks really great in the pictures because it matches the color of the sky, sea, and sand.
