Went into to get a map and came out with a zoo ticket and saved $10 bucks! They also have a museum of the island you can visit with a local docent giving the tours. Very personal and unique!

Fun island. Lots of fun things to do. Good places to eat. Loved the beach and Hotel Del Coronado. Beautiful. Weather was perfect. Fun to tour around. There was free public parking for the beach too. Walked out on the pier. Good times

A great stop to learn the islands history and many famous faces that have visited! Located on the beach next to Hotel del Coronado this is easy to access with good hours. Tip: Free public restrooms, hard to find near the beach!
