    Think you know Catalina? Try visiting the Isthmus/Two Harbors. It's a completely different beast. I spent a day kayaking from Avalon there and back, but you might want to take a boat.

    If renting a golf cart from Golf Cart Rentals of Catalina Island, book online at their website to get three hours for the price of two!

    Due to the current drought, when you ask for water at restaurants, they will charge you 50 cents for bottled water.

    Get a hotel in the center of Avalon, if you go up the hill or have a long walk back at the end of the night, it takes away from your nightlife experience.

    LA County doesn't seem to include Avalon except for profit...If one regulation applies, they all do. With politicians taking strong platforms, like accountability and positive change...

    Honestly, I was expecting a far more "island" feel than what was given. While it is a safe and friendly community, it is way too touristy. Try going deeper into the island! That may be different.

    Take a golf cart to the botanical garden! It was really fun and very pretty up there. Didn't realize Wrigley (Cubs, bubblegum) had such an effect on the island. Interesting!

    Splurge on the fast catamaran, rent a bike on the island, and spend the day poking around this island. Bonus points if you find the herd of buffalo, which were brought here in the 1920's for a movie.
