There's probably no more appropriate place to celebrate the Fourth of July than in a military town, and beautiful Coronado, home to Naval Amphibious Base Coronado, is the perfect blend of setting and tradition. Even if this year’s celebration won’t include the annual simulated raid by U.S. Navy SEALs, the run/walk, art exhibition, rough-water swim, parade, concert, and fireworks will hold plenty of excitement of their own. And of course, leave it to a military town to advise visitors to start picking out their spots on the parade route by 4:30 a.m. – or as the SEALs probably call it: a late start.
