In many of my previous posts about The Coronado Shores, I’ve written about how amazing the views are from 10 giant apartment buildings.  There’s the ocean on one side and the bay on the other. You might imagine apartments that are oceanside must be the clear winner since...well, since it’s the ocean and watching the sunset over the Pacific is an absolute treat.  


But in this case, especially this time of year, living bayside at The Shores trumps that of an ocean view. I say ‘this time of year’ because the best day of the year is upon us.  That’s right, Independence Day. The 4th of July is on the horizon and is, hands down, the best time of year to be in the Crown City.  It goes OFF in this little Cali town.  


The 4th of July in Coronado begins with a parade running through the town, along Orange Avenue.  This morning event is definitely the favorite event of the day among children.  And possibly for the adults too - watching the kids dance and shriek with excitement over horses, clowns, military troops, bagpipe players and characters of all sorts.


The afternoon melts into a party throughout the town - the hard part is picking which one to attend; they’re all a blast! And then in the evening, around 9pm, you have a glorious fireworks show that blast off from the Coronado Bay.  And this is precisely why living bayside at The Shores is perfection.  Sitting cozy on a couch or even cramped onto a 5th floor balcony, these are some of the best seats in the house.  


Get ready, plan accordingly...the 4th of July is just around the corner.
