One of the best day trips in Southern California is Catalina Island. The island is part of the Channel Islands and is a popular stay-cation destination since it is only 45 minutes off the coast of California. While most tourists visit Avalon, we decided to visit one of the more untouched parts of the island: Two Harbors.
Two Harbors is an isthmus that features one restaurant, one one-room schoolhouse, one general store, and you guessed it... two harbors that are separated by about a half mile distance. The city is quaint and uninterrupted by the hustle and bustle of daily life. Two Harbors was so peaceful that it made Avalon seem hectic. There's not much to do here besides water sports, camping, hiking, and photographing of course. And that's what makes it such an attraction.
