GLORIETTA BAY BEACH features bonfire cement containers on the beach. They
are free, fun and one of many

Overlooking some stunning scenery
that includes the Glorietta Bay, harbor, Coronado San Diego Bay Bridge that
keeps kids awestruck with its tall sweeping lines and San Diego skyline,

Coronado enjoys large tourist crowds
across the street and up the hill at the nearby Hotel del Coronado. It is
the jewel of San Diego hotels and has hosted kings, queens and movie stars
such as Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon, who worked on location to film a

When visiting and playing at Glorietta

but you'll have to pay a permit fee. The last time we checked it was around
$100. Specific information is available at wwww.coronado.ca.us
