We get it. Comic Con badges are nearly impossible to snag these days. That doesn’t mean you need to miss out on the entire experience. Should the badges elude you, commit to joining the underbelly comic event. This takes place outside the convention walls, down alleys, tucked away in warehouses, and in basement bars.
Compared to basically every other conference around, Comic Con is a completely different beast. Seriously, what other conference encourages walking around like a zombie? We also can’t remember a single other conference where the attendees skipped the bulk of the event to spend three days outside waiting in line for a panel.
Spring fever is in the air and it’s time for you and Fido to hit the road. With countless destinations at your fingertips, you might be wondering how Coronado ranks on the list. More importantly, what Fido will think of the experience once you get there.
With all the splendors right at your fingertips in Coronado, you can go an entire vacation without ever venturing out to our iconic neighbor San Diego. Should that skyline lure your over, though, here’s how to master America’s finest city in a single day.
Not to brag, but in Southern California we sure know how to throw a great shindig. Whether you’re looking for a family-friendly event, refreshing cold brews or delectable dishes, we have you covered every which way.
What’s the point of bringing Fido to the beach if he has to hang out at the hotel the entire time you visit? While we pride ourselves on the caliber of our rooms at Coronado Inn, we know that your pup doesn’t want to spend the entire day stuck indoors.
Let’s face it; choosing a dog-friendly hotel comes down to more than just the ability to bring your pup into the room with you. Location matters. Opting for a dog-friendly hotel in an oasis of neighborhood dog restrictions only makes for a headache bringing your dog out of the room.
’Tis the season for merriment, cheer, and jubilation! While we may not enjoy the traditional white Christmas, Coronado glistens each holiday season. Our streets light up with spectacular displays, unique holiday events speckle the calendar, and the white sandy beach mirrors any snowscape around, all while enjoying our 70-degree weather and constant sunshine. Add in eggnog, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for your holiday festivities.
While the rest of the country bundles up to watch temperatures continually dip into dismal lows, in Southern California we keep our shorts out and our flip-flops handy all winter. In fact, January proves to be the sunniest month year after year.
Delighting visitors and locals alike, Southern California’s diverse wildlife provides some of the most memorable encounters around. Celebrating the natural marine life in the Pacific Ocean, visitors can discover anything from the harmless leopard shark to the giant gray whale along the coast. Start venturing inland and you’ll find an entire world of biodiversity hosting creatures from around the world. The phrase “lions, tigers, and bears” doesn’t do it justice.
Visiting California doesn’t necessarily cry out, “cheap vacation.” Well, we’re here to tell you that you can actually enjoy our gorgeous coastline and vibrant town all while staying within a budget.
Breakfast, in some ways a forgotten meal, loses sway with many travelers. Food-seekers scour through countless reviews analyzing the best lunch spots, cheapest happy hours, and Instagram worthy dinners. Breakfast falls to the wayside.
