Hotel Del Coronado and Coronado Island

hit counter script
When my friends Jayson and Hazel recently visited San Diego, they visited the famous Hotel Del Coronado, also known as "The Del." But first they saw San Diego Harbor which has statuary galore along the waterfront.

Coronado Island and "The Del"

Coronado Island Ferry Landing They also visited Coronado Island! They were staying downtown, and took the ferry across the harbor (Free!). Here's the ferry landing on the island. Please note that if you're planning to take the ferry, call ahead and make sure it's running. A few weeks ago I read on CNN that they might stop the service.

They also went to La Jolla, where the beaches are small and cozy, (and OK, sometimes crowded). Read about their visit to La Jolla!
