CATALINAEXPRESS.COM 25 What to See +Do 8 perfect itineraries to help you plan your day Catalina has a lot of options: swimming, snorkeling, biking, hiking, ziplining and parasailing, to name just a few. How should you spend your time, especially if you’re a day-tripper with only a few hours ashore? Here are some suggestions. Millennials MORNING: Get to know Avalon this morning by soaring above it on a parasail ride. You’ll get a bird’s-eye view of the town and coastline. Or rent a SUP to explore the bay. LUNCH: Cool off with a Buffalo Milk, Catalina’s signature drink, at Luau Larry’s, “Where the Bar Meets the Bay.” Try the big-and-juicy Kona Burger, topped with cheese and bacon. AFTERNOON: Put your best foot forward on the Garden-to-Sky Trail for a panoramic, Instagram-worthy view of the coast. Reach the trail by taking Avalon Canyon Road to the Wrigley Memorial and Botanic Garden. DAY TWO: Head up to Descanso Beach Club, where you can rent a lounge chair or a cabana on the sand. Add some high-octane action by scrambling up the Catalina Climbing Wall. Family MORNING: Stop at Catalina Island Golf Cart Rentals and get a family-size cart and a scenic-tour map. You’ll be able to see Avalon from the hills overlooking town and you’ll get an introduction to the city itself. And it’s great for Instagrammable moments. LUNCH: Grab a bite at Antonio’s Pizzeria, where you can dine outside, and try Mamma Mia’s Day-Old Spaghetti. Or, for a grab-and-go meal, stop at Coney Island West, for some of the best burgers and dogs in town. AFTERNOON: Take a Semi-Submersible tour for an incredible look at Catalina’s colorful marine life. Or, try a glass-bottom boat, or just go for a swim at Main Beach. DAY TWO: If you stay a second day, check out Catalina Island Museum to learn more about the Native Americans, pirates and Hollywood stars who helped shape the Island. COURTESY OF ISLE SURF AND SUP
