When Hotel del Coronado opened in 1888, it was the largest resort hotel in the world. It’s still the second largest wooden structure in the United States right behind the Tillamook Air Museum so it’s worth a trip to check it out. Rooms start at $300.00 a night and go into the thousands so we’ll never stay at the hotel but we did go inside to see the lobby and wandered around the grounds a bit. It’s a cool building!
The smooth, wide concrete promenade is about 3/4 of a mile one way with good views of the ocean and beach.
