Re: Anyone At Catalina Island, Dana Point?

Fun place to sail to as there area few places to anchor or pick up moorings.

Who wants to live on a desert island where your mode of transportation is a golf cart. Nothing grows here. Big tourist trap.

Nice place to visit for a few days. Restaurants very average but they have a captured clientel so they dont have to be good. Only one I thought interesting was the wine shop with all the cheesecakes. Tons of T shirt places and estate jewlelry shops. Great Zip line. After a few days youll get bored or feel isolated. Everything comes by barge so choices are limited.

Everyone should visit Catalina once to say youve been there, but there are so many nicer places to live and stay in Southern California on the mainland
