About Coronado

The City of Coronado is a small beach community, with an island feel.  Incorporated in 1890, Coronado has a rich history and exceptional community assets in a village atmosphere.  Surrounded by the San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, Coronado offers a unique lifestyle enjoyed by residents, and has also welcomed visitors from around the world for nearly 120 years.

Coronado is the perfect place to swim, sail, surf, bike, run, walk, rollerblade, play tennis, golf, or take in a play. Coronado beaches are consistently considered some of Southern California’s best, and there are miles of bike paths along the coastline that provide a great way to exercise and enjoy the spectacular scenery.  Or, enjoy a round of golf in the shadow of the San Diego-Coronado Bridge at the Coronado Municipal Golf Course.

The City Council encourages residents and visitors to “shop local” and take advantage of the many unique shops, restaurants, and hotels throughout the city. For a complete list of local businesses, visit the Coronado Visitor Center website. The Coronado Chamber of Commerce website has a listing of member businesses.

The thriving cultural and arts scene is also an important part of our community. The Coronado Playhouse is home to our local community theater group, while the Lamb’s Players Theater boasts a well-regarded professional theater group, and the Coronado Historical Association houses the Coronado Museum of History and Art. In addition, the Coronado School of the Arts at Coronado High School offers a wide variety of shows throughout the year including plays, dance recitals, classical music shows, and more.

There are also several very popular annual community events. Each April you can check out the Annual Flower Show and Motorcars on MainStreet events; in the summer months, the Fourth of July parade and fireworks show and the weekly Sunday concerts in the park, held from Memorial Day to Labor Day, are popular with residents and visitors alike; and in December, the Chamber of Commerce Open House and Holiday Parade brings families together in a festive holiday atmosphere.

The City Council is committed to preserving our unique residential and business-friendly village atmosphere.
