Downtown Coronado's Orange Ave is a village-like, slow-paced, area with mainly local, mom-and-pop stores, just a few blocks from Coronado City Beach.
Downtown Coronado's Orange Ave is great for strolling and enjoying the sights.Driving can get congested at times along the narrow, windy road. At the south end of the shopping district is the Del Coronado Hotel, and just beyond that, The Silver Strand.
Many boutique stores, jewelry stores, and so forth, cater to visitors with upscale merchandise, while "regular" stores and offices round out the shopping district. Downtown also has a good selection of restaurants.
Downtown has a beautiful, grassy median. Differently themed gardens are located in different areas of the median. Each garden is funded by private donors and the design is approved by MainStreet’s Design Committee and the City Council.
