Get a little of Coronado's history sample some local food and have a great time. We went restaurant hoping and had appetizers at six different places. Walking a few blocks while in Coronado and eating lightly was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.

No question here, read the reviews, liked them, and then made a reservation for 2 for Friday, January 30. Just to let you know, we did a Culinary Walking Tour in Napa last June and it was great! Looking forward to an equally enjoyable tour. See you in a month! Karl
