Lots to do and see here!:-)

Lots of shops, restaurants, beach shores, and beautiful weather!!!!

Coronado didn't start to develope till two retired business men decided to build Hotel Coronado in 1885 who had to developed the island to make inhabital and brought in water, electricity, a ferry and a rail system on the island. They even planted the old trees you may notice still thriving every where. Hotel Cornando soon became the "the talk of the Western World" with offering first class grand service. It has been visited by Presidents, Royalty, and countless celebrities. It has been the backdrop of so many famous movies like for example with Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon "Some Like It Hot". I love this movie still. You must visit!

History of Coronado
Coronado City

I visit here probaby twice a year since this is my sister's favorite spot. They have one of the best beaches in California.

Movie Stars?

Update! Since this lovely photo of some of the most important people in my life. My little neice has since married and has three children. They are all just as adorable as she is and so is her wonderful hubby. I visit them often.

Ahhh.....I think my sis and my neice are movie star want-ta-bees.....LOL!

It was a lovely day, my niece just graduated from one of San Diego University, we had a lovely lunch and went exploring. We explored the whole hotel. It was a bit crowded, but we enjoyed our time. A really beautiful area.


Hotel Coronado - It also made famous because of the Ghost of Kate Morgan. She checked in in 1892 depondent and weak. Five days later her lifeless body was found on the exterior hotel staircase. It was assumed she claimed her own life. So sad:-( If I could hug her I would. She is still being seen strolling the halls ways of Hotel Coronado to this day.

Haunted Hotels- Kate Morgan ?Beautiful Stranger.?

    This sounds to be a lovely place with the beach, sea, some beautiful historical buildings and the possibility to rent a bike.

    I love "Some like it hot" - an absolute classic! It's great to see how well the history of this elegant hotel has been preserved. It would be an amazing place to stay I reckon :-)

    I have not got to her in trips to SAn Diego-but now wish I would have stopped for a beer at the bar in the hotel. You took good pictures and the comments are well done.

    Nice write-up about the history of The Boathouse! We ate at The Boathouse on Valentine's Day. The dishes weren't too expensive ($15-$20) but with wine and desert our total was right at $100. The view of the marina is awesome at night!

    Dee, If I didn't know better, I would swear (not right for this) that the Graham Memorial Presbyterian Church could be right out off a Honolulu Street. Same look, same feel.

    Fascinating history of this church and its campus on these pages: gmpc.org/pages/campuschurch.... gmpc.org/pages/campuskirkhou... gmpc.org/pages/campuskirkcot... gmpc.org/pages/campusthrift....
