in Coronado to enjoy the holiday season.
Coronado takes pride in organizing numerous events--mostly free for residents and visitors. There are Christmas parades (on land and water), concerts, glittering trees and decorations everywhere. The Hotel del Coronado is a fascinating place to visit any time of the year, however, it is spectacular at Christmas. They build a very popular outside ice skating rink directly on the Pacific Ocean. To give you an idea of all that is going on here, I just counted 29 holiday events listed in The Coronado 2012 Holiday Guide. I have not had the time to experience all of them but so far my favorites have been a leisurely weekday visit to the Hotel Del (built in 1888) to observe the lovely Christmas decorations, watching the Christmas Boat Parade from our apartment window with friends, and viewing the beautifully decorated trees along Orange Avenue. The variety of homes and churches built in the early 1900's add to the magical charm of Coronado.
