Coronado is Spanish for 'the crowned one,' and thus it is nicknamed The Crown City. The city became a major resort destination in 1888 with the opening of the Hotel del Coronado. In 1900, a tourist/vacation area just south of the Hotel del Coronado was established by John D. Spreckels and named Tent City. Over the years the tents gave way to cottages, the last of which was torn down in late 1940 to early 1941.
