A Christmas Legend at the Hotel Del Coronado

One of our favorite Holiday traditions is visiting the Hotel Del Coronado.

Every year The Del has a new Holiday theme and 2018 is “A Christmas Legend”

My boys enjoy ice skating with their friends, while listening to Holiday music and after sunset. Click here for tips to enjoy Skating by the Sea.
