WHO WE ARE

AN AMAZING PLACE WE CALL

You feel the magic of Coronado when you drive over the bridge. The San Diego skyline glitters nearby, the beach beckons ahead and the Grand Dame, the Hotel Del Coronado, anchors its history.

 

We’re a mix of residents, military staff and visitors joined together in this special place that is just 3.5 square miles, bounded by the Pacific Ocean and the San Diego Bay.

 

It would be hard not to love Coronado. And we do love it. City government works here. Residents are engaged. Volunteers are active. Nonprofit organizations are changing lives. The military watches over our country, while we keep an eye on ways to support military families.

We’re an engaged community, invested in making our area even better. For that reason, we created the Coronado Community Foundation.
