Re: Avalon Mooring Mid-Week During the Summer?
At Avalon, Tuesday for sure. There will also be less tourists off the ferries on Tuesday, so it may be a bit more laid back. That said, I've always gone over on Thursday and found something. I don't go on holiday weekends. I'm planning on going next week.
First stop also could be what you want to do for distance. I'm out of Dana Point so Avalon is 8nm closer, so we hit that on the way out (since it's typically motoring the whole way). Then we return from Two Harbors, as it's a better angle of sail (typically). For points north of Newport, Two harbors is closer.
If you've never been to Avalon, I'd recommend the casino tour. Yup, it's kinda touristy, but the architecture there is just astonishing.
