The second day of me and my honey's San Diego weekend trip a few months back was spent exploring Coronado Island. Years ago it was featured on an episode of Baywatch and ever since I've wanted to go.
Remember when they go to the "haunted" Hotel Del Coronado and one of the lifeguards gets spooked?

I love ghosts, real haunted houses and scary stories, so I had to check it out for myself.

I guess this place is a tourist attraction because there were so many people just hanging out (with cameras). Back in the day, old Hollywood movie stars would shoot their films and hang out here.

I was a little disappointed with the inside of the hotel. It was a little smelly and the decor was less than desirable (very traditional and stuffy and needed to be refurbished) but I loved the outside of the hotel and the grounds! Simply beautiful!
Not sure what Dr. Seuss was doing in the courtyard but it was kinda cool to see.
And of course I loved the beach!
Unfortunately, I didn't see any ghosts! ; )
