The Hotel del Coronado’s oceanfront Windsor lawn began to transform into the annual ice skating rink in late November. It is open for visitors and locals that continue to enjoy the unique opportunity to ice skate practically on the beach. With Christmas music echoing all around, it’s accompanied by the sound of the distant waves hitting the sand.
The beautiful Christmas lights illuminate the Hotel Del since they made their highly anticipated traditional appearance in early December. The lights aren’t the only thing that accompanies the holiday spirit. Many decorations can be found all around the hotel, such as this sweet family of happy bears.
But what seems to be gaining the most attraction from locals and visitors alike this year is the unusual and unmistakable upside-down Christmas tree in the center of the main hotel lobby. As most notice, and wonder about, the tree is not hanging from the ceiling, but is solely being supported from the bottom. What do you think?
Many families and friends participate in another fun pastime on the beach, as they gather around a beach firepit adjacent to the ice skating rink and enjoy roasting marshmallows and listing to the holiday music. Click for info on the Jingle Roast.
