    Love this island, lil piece of heavenA great hotel to stay at is the metropole, it is a great family hotel and a great spot for a romantic getaway, DO NOT stay at vista del mar, dirty and unfriendly.

    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.

    it's a unique place with unique people and an amazing history! there's so much to do!!! and it's just across from Los Angeles area. come for the day or come to stay; Avalon will bring you back:-)

    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.

    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.

    Walk 5 minutes up Avalon Canyon road and visit The Sandtrap for delicious $1 tacos, $2 beers and $4 margaritas from 2-7pm!! You won't believe you spent less than $10 on this island for so much stuff!

    The package deal at Hotel Catalina was worth it. Round trip boat, two nights stay, and one activity (we did parasailing). All for less then 400 for two.

    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!

    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.
