The Best Walking Tours on Catalina Island
When you are in a setting as beautiful as Catalina Island, then why not take your time and soak in the scenery? Now is as great a time as any to start walking and getting some clean air and moderate-level exercise. In fact, most vacationers and residents prefer to walk around the island to soak up and experience all the beauty associated with island life.
If you can’t walk for long periods of time then consider a short walk. The city of Avalon is small and offers many architecturally ingenious houses. Some houses still remain on the 20-foot-wide lot created by George Shatto in the 19th century. You will find most of these homes around the Green Pleasure Pier. Another quick walk is around the Wrigley Memorial and Botanic Garden, where you can view native fauna and flora of Catalina Island.
