Located off the coast of California, Catalina Island is a little paradise, perfect for a day of unwinding and exploring. Everything is within walking distance, so have fun with the family exploring the town of Avalon or grab your hiking shoes and hit the trails. If you're looking to relax by the seaside, head to Descanso Beach Club, which is considered the nicest beach on the island, or set sail on a catamaran to circle the island and take it all in.

Walk Through the Wrigley Memorial

William Wrigley, Jr. was the one responsible for developing beautiful Catalina, so why not spend the afternoon paying tribute to him? Hike up about 30 minutes from the beach to the Botanical Gardens and Wrigley Memorial, where you can stroll through 37 acres of Californian plants and admire the 130-foot tower that was built to honor the man who brought life to the island.
Insider tip
There are no cars for tourists on this island! If you want to get around quickly, rent a golf cart.

Art Deco Appreciation

"Casino" is derived from the Latin word for "gathering place" and that's exactly what Catalina Casino is. Opened in 1929, this Art Deco masterpiece is one of the most famous attractions on the island, but you won't find any gambling in here. Instead, take a tour back in time to explore the world's largest circular ballroom or catch a flick in the original movie theater.
Insider tip
A free shuttle runs from town to Descanso Beach every half-hour. However, you should check the schedule to make sure it's running on the day you're visiting.
