Located a ferry ride away from San Diego, Coronado is known for its sparkling sandy beaches (it's mica that does it), which rank among the top 10 in the US. Scenic Segway and walking tours are available, and there's shopping at Ferry Landing. You probably won't want to miss seeing the Hotel del Coronado, built in 1888. It's a National Historic Landmark, has a scandalous past and a few ghosts, and is said to have been the inspiration for the Emerald City in the Wizard of Oz books.
