Why We Love It

Avalon, the only incorporated city on the island of Catalina Island, is home to beaches, restaurants, hotels and outdoor recreational fun. The island, most recognized for its unique and rocky terrain, was transformed into a tourist destination by William Wrigley Jr. (yes, the gum aficionado). Mostly controlled by the Catalina Island Conservatory to balance conservation, education and recreation, the island is known for its outdoor adventure, roaming buffalo, beautiful waterfront, amazing zip-line tours, and its famous glass-bottom submarine tours. Note: You'll have to take a ferry or helicopter to get here!
