By Car, Coronado: 4 reviews and 8 photos
Coronado is not an island (maybe it was) - it's a long peninsula. So except by a bridge you can get there from south by a land: driving highway 75 from Imperial Beach as we did. So we had the Pacific Ocean on the left and San Diego Bay on the right.
From LINDA (lmkluque):
Coronado was and is an Island. The "Silver Strand" (the road we took from Imperial Beach to Coronado.) is "landfill" that the US Government built up to create that road, so Military Personel, living south of San DiegoCity could reach the base without having to drive all the way to downtown to get to work. (In those days there was only a ferry to Coronado. The Bridge across the SD Bay was built in 1969) The Silver Strand is like a bridge to Coronado.
Thank you Linda for your great explanations.
