Coronado is primarily a resort community. This incorporated town was established in 1890, after the Coronado Beach Company completed a schoolhouse, several recreational clubs, and the Hotel del Coronado. The Hotel del Coronado, a building that is also referred to as The Del or Hotel Del, was one of the first establishments that put Coronado on the path to becoming the premier vacation destination that it is today.
Hotel del Coronado is the 2nd largest structure in the United States that is made entirely out of wood. (The largest being the Tillamook Air Museum in Oregon.) It is also one of the only remaining buildings that was built in the style of the wooden Victorian beach resort. This architectural style was extremely popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s, but the majority of these wooden resorts fell into disrepair and have been torn down since then. Hotel del Coronado, on the other hand, is surprising well preserved. Because of this, it was added to the list of National Historic Landmarks and California Historical Landmarks in the 1970s.
The resort island of Coronado is not actually an island. Instead, it is connected to the mainland by a tombolo. This thin sliver of land, called the Silver Strand, makes Coronado a prime example of a “tied island.” Coronado and the Silver Strand wrap around to form the San Diego Bay, with Coronado lying directly across the water from Downtown San Diego. Prior to 1944, a shallow strip of water that was known as the Spanish Blight separated Coronado from the North Island. When the United States Navy came in before World War II, they developed the area on and around North Island, including a project that filled in the Spanish Blight and made the area one continuous land mass. Coronado was named after the Spanish word that translates to “crowned one,” earning it a nickname of The Crown City. This city has also shared a name with three local naval ships, the most famous of which was the USS Coronado.
