A few weeks ago I went to Catalina Island for the day, and it was so beautiful I had to share. Catalina Island is is a little island off the coast of Southern California, about an hour ferry ride away from Orange County. I have had it on my list of places to go since I moved to LA, and finally made the little trip.
When you pull up to the island, it looks like a postcard from the South of France. There are colorful houses lining the hills and boats docked in the water — it truly looks like paradise. I think one of the reasons I was so excited to travel here was because it reminded me so much of Nantucket Island. I used to go to Nantucket almost every summer with my family, and it is still one of my very favorite places in the world. Something about taking a ferry to a little island reminded me so much of those trips, which I loved.
Anyways, I thought I’d share a few recommendations for places to eat, things to do, and some places to stay on Catalina Island, in case you’re heading to the quaint little island in the near future.
What is your favorite place for a weekend getaway?
