 Skating by the Sea Returns to the Hotel Del Coronado Beginning November 26, 2019 Believe it or not the time has come for the popular Skating by the Sea at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, the 15th consecutive year. I believe this is the only beachfront ice skating in San Diego! Skating by the Sea starts Tuesday, November 26th and runs through January 5th 2020. Because of our rain (which was badly needed) the opening of the skating rink has been delayed a few days according to the hotel website. Wow, imagine ice skating under a bright blue sky with palm trees waving, the sun shining, and a gorgeous beach and ocean just steps away!?  It’s possible you MAY need a sweater, especially with our fall and winter ocean breezes, but generally at this time of year you can expect temps in high...

Ice Skating by the Sea at the Hotel Del Coronado for 2018 The holiday season is here, and it’s time once again for the very popular Ice Skating by the Sea at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, the 14th consecutive year. As far as I know this is the only beachfront ice skating in San Diego...and maybe in California! Can you imagine ice skating under a bright blue sky with palm trees waving, the sun shining, and a gorgeous beach and ocean just a few steps away!?  It’s possible you MAY need a sweater, especially with our ocean breezes, but generally at this time of year you can expect temps in high 50s to low 60s at the beach, sometimes better!  Of course there is no snow to worry about! The Hotel Del Coronado is a San Diego icon, a special place by the beach and ocean. It’s well worth a...

We took a day and a half to enjoy being tourists in San Diego, and spent some of the time on Coronado Island on Father's Day in the town and at the Hotel Del Coronado. We stumbled across this amazing sand castle memorial to the horrific shootings in Orlando on the beach in front of the hotel. It was very moving, to say the least, and amazingly detailed.

Christmas at the Hotel Del Coronado "A Time to Celebrate" This year's Christmas theme is  " A Time to Celebrate". The Hotel Del Coronado, or as some us refer to her as the Grand Dame of Hotels, has prepared some special treats for this years celebration. With over 100,000 lights, lighting the entire hotel and the decorations this year are in silver and gold accents with vintage Santa Clauses throughout out all of the decorations. This year the hotel created a veritable Christmas Wonderland throughout the hotel and the grounds, including its 8th year for the beachfront ice skating rink.   The hotel is also celebrating the resorts 125th year in 2013 and that kicks off on New Years Day. I expect it to be a celebration that will impress all who will take part in this historic occasion. If y...

New Years Day Ice Skating At The Beach The location was the Hotel Del Coronado on Coronado Island and the temperature was about 70 degrees. Did I mention that was temperature in the shade. In the sun it was down right hot!  You can see the affect the sun was having on the surface of the ice in the great reflection of the hotel on the surface. All in all, a great way to bring in the New Year appreciating our magnificent weather and the many wonderful visuals of living in Southern California.

  Christmas as the Hotel Del Coronado is an inspiration in charm, grace and merriment. Traditions of old fashioned decorations as seen many decades ago, are ever present and fill the space in a reflection of how Christmas might have looked many decades ago.  Collections of ornaments from decades past decorate the enormous tree in the lobby. Even the icing decorated Gingerbread cookies are real.  The Grand Dame of Historic Hotels with her many lights framing the outline remains one of the areas most outstanding iconic figures. Her beauty remains timeless. I ran across an interesting bit of Christmas Trivia about a claim made by the press in the early 1900's about the Hotel Del Coronado. A long standing tradition that was started with the Grand Dame of Historic Hotels on the west coast, T...
