How Does Coronado Compare with Other SoCal Beach Communities in Providing "Beach Path" Access?

View of Coronado’s beach shared by motorists, cyclists and pedestrians from the intersection of Marina Avenue and Ocean Boulevard.

In June the City Council unanimously approved funding up to $100,000 for a study of the feasibility of constructing a multi-use path on the beach has become the source of substantial discussion.  Vocal opposition to…

How to Close the Deal in a Competitive Market

The incredible charm of our island lifestyle paired with limited land creates an extremely competitive real estate market. Bottom line, there aren’t enough houses for everyone who wants to enjoy our slice of paradise. 

That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the luxury of homeownership in Coronado. In fact, we want to help you to achieve that goal.

So how do you enter into a competitive market and surface as a successful new homeowner? It takes an aggressive buyer…

Community Voices: Vehemently Opposed to Bike Path on Coronado Beach

Dear Mayor Tanaka and City Council Members:

As a long time resident, I feel…

Historical Moments from Coronado: 1880-1890


In the 1880s there was a boom of opportunity and growth for San Diego. The California Southern Railroad connected San Diego to the East Coast.  Within a week products (honey, oranges, lemon, butter, and salt) could reach the West Coast.

Two gentlemen who came west about this time were entrepreneurs looking for opportunities for building cities, infrastructure and making money. Elisha Babcock, a retired railroad executive from…

Community Voices: The Other Side of the Bike Path Issue

Last Saturday evening we walked the length of Ocean Blvd. at about 5 o'clock. We were reasonably well dressed because we were on our way to a reception at the Hotel Del. At least half dozen or more times, we were forced to find a way to move off the sidewalk to allow surreys and/or bikes go by. With even minor heels and nice dress shoes, this can be a daunting task since, in some places, the rather narrow sidewalk is bounded by boulders on one side and parking slots on the…

Community Voices: My Husband's Views on The Bike Path Study

My wife and I attended the city council meeting on August 18, 2015 and were surprised and amazed at the opposition to the “bike path study.” As I listened, what particularly amazed me was that statements and arguments were being set forth based on a lack of any facts, reasons, or evidence which could be used to make a logical decision regarding just a “bike path study.”

Having been trained in research and having had professional experience in large organizations related…

My Coronado Memory -- 'Summer Days at the Beach'

Summer Days at the Beach

By Bruce HB Johnson

I chose my parents wisely, so I could be born and raised in Coronado. My dad was a Navy Fighter Pilot. Growing up on the island was like being in Mayberry, except we had a beach. Summers were magical. School got out in early June for summer vacation and did not resume until after Labor Day…

Perspectives on Market Volatility

In recent weeks, and in recent days in particular, stocks around the world have fallen sharply.  The S&P 500 Index was down 3.94% today and is now down 11% from its May 21 all-time high close of 2130.82.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average has fallen to an 18-month low.

Sudden, sharp declines can be disheartening for long-term investors, as gains built up over months or years can be erased in a matter of days.  However, volatility is unavoidable in investing and 10% declines in…

Celebrate the Unforgettable '80s with MIXTAPE at Lamb's Players Theatre

Spandex and side-ponytails reigned supreme at the Horton Grand Theatre in downtown San Diego this weekend -- and not just on the stage. Audience members sported 1980s scrunchies and legwarmers as they mingled in the lobby, complimenting each other on the brightest shade of neon.

Inside the theatre, a feeling of familiarity permeated, and not just because everyone had loved and lived through the…
