about San Diego Bay Ferry:
The Ferry Landing Marketplace houses a collection of shops and restaurants, most with a nautical theme. At the Ferry Landing you can either connect to the local Trolley system or rent a bike there at Bicycles and Beyond.
Bikes are allowed on the ferry for a $0.50 fee and are a great idea to bring along for exploring Coronado.
A few minutes ride south along the bay you will find Tidelands Park which has the distinction of being at the foot of the Coronado Bridge. You may want to pedal over to Spreckels Park on summer Sunday evenings for free concerts in the park. The Silver Strand Beach and Hotel Del Coronado on the Pacific coast side of the island are worth a visit as well.
You may also want to pedal over to the Silver Strand Beach and enjoy the long strip of sandy beaches that look out over the seemingly endless Pacific Ocean. Forgot to pack a picnic? No problem. Dozens of small cafes dot the main road in this pristine island community and make picking up a sandwich easy.
Whether you're crossing for a day or just to see San Diego from its best vantage point - the water - the ferry is a great way to go.
