Avalon, Catalina Island – get a taste of the French Riviera in California

We recently took our first day trip to Catalina Island in the summer. Even though we live somewhat close to the boat dock to Catalina we have never traveled there until recently.

What could California possibly offer that is comparable with Italy’s famous Tuscany ? Well, Catalina Island surprised us and it will surprise you!
