William Wrigley Botanic Gardens Near Avalon Catalina Island
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 40-metre/130-foot tower that was built to honour the man who brought life to the island.
Avalon Bay Catalina Casino Catalina California
"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 film in the original cinema.
It's your holiday, so grab your swimsuit and towel and find a spot on the soft sand at Descanso Beach. It's the only beach where you can legally drink on the island, so you can order your ice-cold treat of choice from the nearby beach club, then dig your toes in the sand as you soak up the view.
From enjoying a three-course meal at Mt Ada (William Wrigley Jr's old mansion with views of the harbour) to grabbing a burger and fries from one of the casual diners in Avalon, there are great dining options for everyone.
Wander down to the waterfront and explore the shops and boutiques. Pop into one of the many shops for fun souvenirs to take home for the whole family. If you're looking for something unique to the island, the Avalon General Store should top your list.
