Thread: Catalina Island

  1. Default Catalina Island

    Hi all!

    I am planning a trip for June 2009 (LA-San Francisco-Las Vegas). WE have 2 weeks and I was wondering if it was worth going over to Catalina Island?

    Does anyone know much about it? What is there to do on the Island? Whats the best way to get there? How long should we spend - is it a day trip or would we be best to stay over?

    Thanks
    xx

    Here is a site that can answer a lot of your questions about Catalina. I suppose you could make a day trip out of it, because the boat ride to get there only takes about an hour. Lodging is quite costly - $100 to $300+ a night.

    Thanks for that link!

    Have you been to Catalina? Is it worth going to or are there better places you would suggest spending a day?

    I haven't been there in about 50 years, to be honest with you, and I remember very little and I'm absolutely certain I wouldn't recognize anything if I went back. I suppose what you do for a day is all up to what interests you the most. I personally would take that extra day and apply it to taking your time going up the coast to SF on the coast highway, or taking your time from SF to LV, but Catalina may have exactly what YOU are looking for. I suppose it would be a good alternative to spending the day at Disneyland or something like that.

    Are you going in June or July?
    You can also check the Chamber's website at www.CatalinaChamber.com or twitter.com/catalinachamber. They have specials and packages, including day packages if you are interested in going over for just a day. There's lots to do on the island though- either in the town of Avalon - snorkeling, parasailing, diving, kayaking, golf, bicyling, hiking, shopping, eating, relaxing on the beach, touring the beautiful Casino building or the Wrigley Memorial Botanical Gardens - or just exploring the picturesque town. Or go into the interior in search of the island buffalo and enjoy the undeveloped interior of the island.
