City of Coronado Visitor Center
Coronado Visitor Center
The City of Coronado Visitor Center is a partnership between the Coronado Historical Association and the City of Coronado.
Located in the heart of Coronado (at 1100 Orange Avenue), our Visitor Center is staffed with knowledgeable Ambassadors and stocked with an array of free resources to help visitors and residents experience Coronado in a unique way. Whether in Coronado for leisure, business,or a special event; the Visitor Center has resources to help make each visit special.
Visitors can also experience the Coronado Museum of History and Art to learn about the history, people and culture that make Coronado such a special place. While at the Visitor Center, be sure to stop by the Museum Store for unique gifts–for you or your friends and family.
The Visitor Center has a team of Docents who lead two tours: The Hotel del Coronado Tour and the Heritage Walk. The Hotel del Tour is offered five days a week and represents a partnership between CHA and the Hotel Del; the tour script is even written by the Hotel Historian. The Heritage Tour includes the Hotel Del for a portion of the tour but also explores downtown Coronado, Ocean Blvd, Star Park and other points of interest. Both tours are 90 minutes long.
Coronado’s official tourism website, www.coronadovisitorcenter.com, welcomes over 45,000+ visitors each month. This site is a great resource for people planning a visit, but also for those already on the Island. Full of essential information about where to stay, eat and play, transportation and events – as just a few examples, the website also contains links for easy access to Coronado businesses.
The Visitor Center responds to emails and calls from all over the world requesting information about Coronado. The Manager works with businesses and community organizations to promote their efforts. Additionally, the General Manager works closely with other tourism agencies, including the San Diego Tourism Authority, the Coronado Chamber of Commerce, Coronado Tourism Improvement District and Coronado MainStreet to collaboratively promote the one-of-a-kind community we call Coronado.
