Travel Tips for Avalon

Make time to relax!!!

by cyndec

There are too many 'favorite' things to list...but one you should definitely plan for is......REST! Because the city is so small we've made the mistake (twice!) of plannin' too short of a vacation here. Some tours are a must to see the Bay from above...add that to the very interesting Casino tours and wonderful shops and you'll run out of time before you know it! We had hoped to just 'lounge' one whole day...but ran out of time! :( Plan accordingly!!! I miss the view of the Bay. The colorful boats moored in the Bay and Avalon's Green Pier are just beautiful and the view of the colorful hillside makes you feel your continents away.

Go Somewhere else

by Graeme_Webb

No, it really does look like DisneyLand, you will find no Trash on the ground, everything is in pastle colors but you wont find any rides or Mickey Mouse.
I really find it all a bit false. For a day trip I liked it but for any long stay I would go out of my mind.

HAVE FUN IN THE SUN

by travelgourmet

Pack your beach gear so that when you want to go in the water for a swim or to snorkel you will have the things you need. A swimsuit, no nude beaches. A hat for keeping your head cool. Flip-flops to walk around in. Beach/water shoes to avoid the rocks in the sand and maybe even sunblock.

SCUBA Diving - boat diving

by squidly2

The ScubaLuv dive shop in Avalon runs a boat called the King Neptune. It is almost always 3 tank diving at 3 different sights.
In general, they have a good system to handle quite a few divers, (up to about 25).
No guide goes into the water, but everyone gets a breifing on where to see stuff and what to expect.
The typical scheudle is to meet at the dive shop at 0830, leave the dock close to 0930. Diving might not finish up until around 1700.

It's a good, spacious, fast and safe boat that can handle the crowd very well. They have a make-your own sandwich bar for lunch and plenty of drinks. Rent your gear at the shop when you check in. You'll need a 5-7mm wetsuit.

The Buffalo

by Gypsystravels

I am not sure how many travellers actually arrive via Cessna (or small aircraft), but we were lucky enough to have our cousin fly us from LA to Catalina Island.

We arrived very early and the only way down to the main city is via bus. We got on a "trolly" type bus that worked its way down the winding hills and we were surprised to find herds of buffalo.

My daughter fell in love with what she called the "Buffalo Billies"...

I am not sure on the actual history, but I have read that these buffalos are ancestors of buffalos brought here by a huge movie production and then left here after the filming of the movie.

I will try to get more information about the history of the buffalo.
