Last Saturday Jim and I headed down to Coronado just across San Diego bay. Our destination? The famous Hotel del Coronado.
If you haven't heard of this hotel, where have you been? Just kidding. When it opened in 1888(What?! Yes, 1888), it was one of a kind. At that time, it was considered the largest resort hotel in the world, and is now the largest all wooden building in California, and also the oldest!
I think when most people see this hotel they see Marilyn Monroe in Some Like It Hot, which was filmed there. But there were numerous other famous guests who stayed there. Some of them being Frank L. Baum, Charlie Chaplin, and even Thomas Edison. Sixteen US Presidents stayed there as well. How cool, right?
This place was really beautiful to see. Jim and I stopped at a mexican restaurant called Miguel's Cocina first, to grab some delicious fish tacos and margaritas. It was pretty windy out that day, but we still had a blast.
Hope you guys enjoyed! This place is really great. It was fun getting to see the other side of Coronado besides the Naval Base. We also went to a few other places this weekend, so more adventures to come!
Have a great day!
