of my favorite spots to visit in Southern California is Catalina
Island. The island is a world way from the hustle and bustle of
the Los Angeles area even though it is only about twenty miles off the
coast and accesible within an hour by ferry. Once on the island,
it is advised to rent a golf cart to drive around the main road to see
the Wrigley Mansion and Memorial and end up back by the coast
again. I highly recommend making reservations in advance for the
ferry service since it fills up fast during the summer months.
