(we rented a partial condo from someone off of craigslist, and had a great experience with them, if you're interested)
We brought our bikes, which Jake managed to magically fit into the trunk of our Geo, and they totally made the trip.
Our days basically went like this:
deciding on our favorite houses in the neighborhood,
and then park our bikes at a local restaurant for dinner.
Coronado is such a family-friendly place. The beaches were full of little kids, and everyone walking around town either had a dog or a 2-year-old with them. Or both. And at night, the hot spot was the local ice cream shop. Which was heavenly and ridiculously reasonably priced.
Other highlights of the trip:
Our afternoon in Balboa Park
And our day in La Jolla, visiting the sea lions.
All in all, I would say we had an awesome time, and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
