Christmas Eve at the historic Hotel del Coronado

Out & About

Even though I’m not a big fan of white Christmas lights, one of the best places to go each year in San Diego to see all sorts of Christmassy stuff is the historic Hotel del Coronado.

As you come off of the bridge and turn left onto Orange Avenue, you’re greeted by very tall pine trees decorated with thousands of lights.

Once you get to the Hotel del Coronado, there is usually live entertainment in the lobby.

There is a tall Christmas tree in the lobby, but it’s always so dark and crowded there that I’ve never been able to get a good picture of the tree. With flash and Photoshop, I do get pictures of the decorations around the bottom of the tree.

    I’ve never been down there at Christmas but I was able to spend a couple of days there one spring. What a beautiful place. Our bed filled the small bedroom and our window opened onto the courtyard, not the beach. But we were there! 🙂
