    Short Description of the Area: Coronado is an affluent island with a small town atmosphere and is often called a "resort city". It used to be an island until the shallow water between it and and the mainland was filled in when the Navy moved into North Island, the northern half of Coronado, so the island is now connected by a peninsula known as the Silver Strand. Coronado and all other mentioned communities are part of San Diego County. San Diego, one of the largest cities in California and the U.S., is the seat of the county, which is the 5th largest county in the state. The San Diego-Tijuana, Mexico metropolitan area has a population of nearly 5 million and is one of the largest bi-national metro areas in the country. Warning: Crossing the U.S.-Mexico border does not always allow for easy re-entry, even with a Military ID.

    Climate and Weather: Coronado and the San Diego areas are widely considered to have one of the best climates in the country. Summers are warm and dry with very mild winters. Over 200 days per year are over 70 degrees Fahrenheit. January has an average temperature of 56.6 degrees F. and August averages about 73.5 degrees. The annual average rainfall is 9-13 inches and most falls between December and March. Since most cities in San Diego County are coastal, they can experience "June gloom" from May to early July; cloud cover over the water keeps the area cloudy most of the morning to afternoon, with inland areas clearing up before the more coastal regions. The risk of an earthquake in Coronado is less than in the rest of California but higher than the national average.
