It’s not uncommon to come across a newcomer who has never heard of the Cays. This hidden gem frequently goes undetected from residents of San Diego. Sometimes it even slips the memory of Coronado locals.
But, seclusion is part of the charm in the Cays.
This growing community brings a unique allure, especially for the yacht community. So for the homeowners looking for an extension of Coronado lifestyle, we wanted to highlight the enchanting draw of the…Continue

My husband mused on Sunday afternoon, "And tonight we have no plans..."
"... except Concert in the Park! First of the season!" I couldn't stop the huge grin on my face. The day was finally here.
We moved to Coronado last August, and our Concert in the Park experiences last summer were a blur of children all over the playground, visiting family, and a sea of faces in which we knew no one.
One weekend last summer, when my husband…Continue

“I think I’m going to get prosecco,” my friend Heather announced.
I looked up from my menu, surprised.
It was 11 o’clock in the morning, on a Thursday, and we had exactly 45 more minutes away from our kids. Well, most of our kids. Heather’s newborn son was sleeping in his stroller next to us.
“Prosecco?! I was thinking of getting some big chocolate dessert, but you put me to shame!”
Heather laughed, and when the waiter came over to our table, we…Continue

How does a neighborhood, considered to have the busiest highway for its length in the country, turn the tide and become a pride of Coronado again? The TAF (Third and Fourth Streets) group asserted that one challenge, the Navy commuter traffic, could actually become their own "Crown."
When the concept of an “Avenue of Heroes," (to honor the significant military route of Third and Fourth Streets) was brought before the Coronado Transportation Commission (CTC) in January…Continue
The recent death of a pedestrian at Fourth and A should be a wakeup call for the City of Coronado, but will it? And the serious injury of a teenage pedestrian at Fourth and B about a year ago should have raised a red flag too, but it didn’t. It’s astonishing, but an EFFECTIVE and TIMELY plan of action from our City has yet to materialize, and all we get are more studies and surveys. Yes, CALTRANS is derelict too, so is the Navy, and San Diego judges don’t help much…Continue

In an age where bookstores are fading out as Kindles and Nooks are flooding in, one local bookstore continues to stand its ground. Bay Books is the kind of place every reader dreams of making their home for an hour or two. Soft music plays in the background and seats and tables are positioned throughout the store for customers to not grab a book and go, but make book shopping an experience. The staff are friendly and share the same love…Continue
