How are you connected to Coronado?
I'm a Coronado local.
What are some things you love about Coronado? Favorite places on the island?
Coronado has it's own identity, separate from the big city and it changes very little over the years. Favorite place is the magnificent beach and the beautiful bay. I was born here and love it even more now.
