Toast the Moon at the Best Coronado Picnic Spot

The word “picnic” first appeared in the English language in 1748, when an English lord associated it with card-playing, drinking and conversation. On this romantic date, it’s a good idea to replace the cards with some dinner and aphrodisiacs (including a bottle of wine!) picked up from the local market. Once your basket is bursting with sustenance and love stimulants, stop off at the French pastry shop around the corner for some delectable desserts before heading to your final destination—a tiny park with a big view. Here, at our favorite Coronado picnic spot, be sure and toast the moon, the stunning skyline and each other…and, let the “conversation” begin.


  • WHERE: Coronado
  • VIBE: Eat & Drink, Relax, Romantic
  • INVESTMENT: $, $$

  1. Fill your picnic basket with dinner, aphrodisiacs, and wine at…
    Boney’s Bayside Market
    155 Orange Avenue
    Coronado, CA 92118
  2. Grab your dessert at…
    1106 First Street
    Coronado, CA 92118
  3. Then, walk or drive to your picnic spot…
    Bayview Park
    1st Street and I Avenue
    Coronado, CA 92118


  • If you’re a diehard romantic, do some pre-date setup so when you arrive at the park, your date will find a plush picnic blanket covered with (fresh) rose petals, (soon-to-be-lit) candles, and (plastic) wine or champagne glasses. The odds are it won’t be bothered in your brief absence.
  • If you’d really like to pump up the pheromones, wear a perfume or cologne with vanilla undertones. Smell brings back memories the strongest…so consider the scent a date souvenir that will remind both of you of your special evening.


  • Glass containers and alcohol are not allowed in Coronado’s parks or beaches. This would be a good time to make brilliant use of certain clear liquids and an empty Sprite or 7-Up bottle. We won’t tell anyone if you won’t!
  • If you don’t own a picnic basket, we love this one—2 Person Picnic Hamper Set
