Head out towards to Descanso Beach Club, to take to the trees at Catalina Aerial Adventure, a unique and alluring outdoor experience. Catalina Aerial Adventure is just a short stroll from the beach, but you’ll feel like you’re deep in the woods, as you climb, swing and slide from tree to tree on a series of obstacles suspended in a grove of towering eucalyptus high above the canyon floor.

Once you are done with your climbing adventure, hike towards the Wrigley Memorial and Botanic Garden, a 30-minute stroll up Avalon Canyon from the center of town. The Botanic Garden offers beautiful views, enchanting plants and a historical memorial.


Head back towards the center of town for a bite to eat at Mi Casita. Serving up everything from steak to seafood and all of the traditional favorites, Mi Casita is an Island favorite. If you’re feeling thirsty, their margaritas are some of the best on Catalina.
