July Activities in Coronado

July is without a doubt the busiest month of the year in Coronado. Visitors are drawn from all over the world to experience our perfect weather, our Independence Day activities, and the one-of-a-kind Comic-Con International.  If you are planning a trip to Coronado in July, make your reservations early!

Independence Day - July 4

The highlight of the month for locals is the 4th of July. Activities start early and end late and the events are all close to the Hotel Marisol.

If you enjoy early morning exercise on your holiday, Coronado hosts the Crown City Classic run and the Annual Rough Water Swim. The 7 a.m. Classic run offers both a 12K and 5K run, plus a ½ mile fun run. They all start and finish at Coronado’s Tidelands Park on San Diego Bay. Register online today as the price goes up on June 1.

If a swim in our brisk ocean water is your preference, plan to be at Central Beach (1 block from the Hotel Marisol) at 7:30 a.m. to check in. All ages and levels of expertise are welcome, with numerous race categories. Preregister today!

The annual Independence Day Parade is San Diego’s biggest celebration on July 4th. Borrow our loaner chairs and get a prime spot to watch the parade on Orange Avenue, just a few steps away from the hotel. The parade reaches our end of town around 10:15 a.m. but we recommend staking your spot by 9 a.m.

Don’t miss the fireworks over Glorietta Bay that start promptly at 9:00 p.m. We recommend walking down to the Coronado Municipal Golf Course around 8:30 p.m.  Take our loaner beach chairs and relax on the greens along Glorietta Bay and have a great view of our local fireworks display.

Comic-Con International: July 20-23


Comic-Con International has been hosted in San Diego since 1970. It is now the largest convention in our county, so you need to get your hotel reservations early. All hotels in Coronado will sell out for that weekend, July 20 -23.

Reservations for the Hotel Marisol for the weekends of Independence Day can only be made by calling us directly. There are special minimum stay restrictions and deposit/cancellation policies that apply to these high occupancy dates.
