Coronado: Land of Beach Cruisers and Rooftops

We were invited to spend a weekend at a friend’s family beach house in Coronado. I KNOW. Who could possibly say no to that? No one. No one could ever say no. And this wasn’t just any house in Coronado. Walking distance to the beach (although most things are walking distance in Coronado), pool, hot tub, beautiful summer weekend, beach cruisers for days, and some locals to show us around; this house had all the trappings for a great weekend, and did not disappoint.

It probably won’t surprise you that we spent the weekend days walking the beach and cruising the island. Do you know how fun it is to form an impromptu bike gang and ride all over the place on beach cruisers? During ComicCon weekend? Let’s just say best people watching EVER.

To be honest, the people watching was so amazing and I was so preoccupied with riding a bicycle and staring that I did not take a single photo of the ComicCon madness (For those blissfully unaware of this event, it’s an annual conference in downtown San Diego relating to all things comics. And everyone dresses up. And I mean really dresses up!). Oh well, maybe I’ll remember photos next year? Hint, hint, Kyle…

After an exhausting day of cruising, we headed into San Diego to see what kind of trouble we could get into. Remember how I mentioned hanging out with the locals? Well, we got invited to a rooftop party, overlooking the entire city. And managed to get there before the sun set. And they were BBQing, and the food was fabulous. To whomever those people were, your life rocks. Thank you for including us for the night!

So, to our hosts, thanks for the best weekend in the history of Coronado. And to those of you traveling to Coronado, here’s my advice: stay at a friends beach house, form a beach cruiser bike gang, take in all the ComicCon hilarity, and get invited to a rooftop party overlooking the city. Come on, it’s not that hard…
