Explore the stunning scenery that makes up the island of Catalina off the California coast and enjoy a journey through its history. Spend time virtually strolling through its main town, Avalon, full of quaint shops and restaurants. Embark on a voyage through time, from the island’s ownership by the Wrigley family to the Hollywood era to the conservation efforts of today. Find out what sports team spent their time on Catalina training, and what sports announcer would later go on to become a major political figure. Hear fascinating details about people ferrying over for a single night of dancing in the ballroom. Discover secrets of Catalina’s back country, where bison roam free, and take in some of the incredible island activities: bus tours, ziplining, snorkeling, parasailing, riding golf carts, or relaxing at the beach, to name a few. As the Four Preps song goes, “26 miles across the sea, Santa Catalina is waiting for me.”
