    Best Free Thing #5: Spring Flowers

    by goodfish Written Jun 1, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I’m adding this along with my previous review on Community Landscapes. Here are some close-up examples of some of the gorgeous blooms you’ll see on an April ramble about the island - and they are simply everywhere. A walkabout to admire the gardens was especially fun for me as some of the blooms are varieties which don't grow in my northern climate. Beautiful!!!

    Coronado-San Diego Bridge

    by machomikemd Written Nov 25, 2013

    the long Coronado-San Diego Bridge is an attraction in itself, this now toll free bridge is part of CA Route 35, connecting the Coronado Peninsula to Downtown and stretches for 2.1 miles (3.7 kilometers) along the San Diego Bay with an average ceiling of 200 feet or more (62 meters) to allow the US Navy Ships to pass through to the Naval Base. It was opened in 1969 and The bridge contains five lanes: two eastbound, two westbound, and a reversible middle lane with a moveable barrier system which can be used to create a third lane in either direction in response to traffic volume.

    you can also take the slower but more romantic ferry to and from Cornonado to San Diego at the Ferry Landing Terminal.

    Best Free Thing #10: Glorietta Bay

    by goodfish Written Jun 11, 2013

    John Spreckles, who once owned the Del Coronado, most of the island, and was the wealthiest man in San Diego to boot, loved this little bay so much that in 1908 he built his magnificent Beaux Arts mansion on the bluff above it. Here he could overlook the Del’s boathouse - designed by the same architects as the hotel - and the expanse of his resort’s lively Tent City on the finger of the Silver Strand below.

    Today, the mansion is an elegant inn, the boathouse has been turned into restaurant, and towering condos stand where summer folk once flocked to little gaily striped pavilions to enjoy the sea breezes. The bay is no less lovely, though, for its billowing sailboats and attractive homes that line Glorietta Boulevard. The harbor is home to the Coronado Yacht Club, and vessels large and small cluster along docks ringing the curve of the cove. A stroll or bike ride down the promenade on the Strand, past the marina and community center, winds up in Glorietta Bay Park: a green oasis with a playground, restrooms, small beach and tables for a bag lunch al fresco.

    All sorts of craft - from paddleboards to yachts - may be leased or chartered from Seaforth Rentals near the old boathouse.

    Gelato fresh

    Wandering Coronado, especially in the spring and summer, one can get warm. What better way to refresh but get an ice cold Gelato at Bottarga Italianate.
