One Day in Catalina

by graceisthenewglam

Soooo – my guy and I have both lived in SoCal for 10+ years now and neither of us have ever ventured to the island of Catalina. We’ve talked about going but never got around to it.  It was Steve’s birthday this past Sunday – so I decided to surprise him with a boat ride on the Catalina Express (you get yo ride for FREE if it’s your birthday!).

We pulled up to the port in Long Beach and were shocked at how many people were lined up to board the boat! People going for the weekend, just for the day, bikers, fishers – you name it, they gathered there. We hopped on and off we went – 1 hour on the water and then we arrived.

Catalina  is STUNNING. As soon as you pull up to Avalon – you are immersed in pure beauty.

Here’s what we did:

  • Rented a golf cart for 2 hours and toured the island (total highlight!)
  • Played in the arcade for an hour or so
  • Had a delicious meal at Blue Water Grill 

I (and we) highly recommend a day trip to Catalina. Steve and I had a blast.
