Everyone deserves a vacation where you can unplug, reset, and refuel.
Everyone needs A BIRTHDAY GETAWAY TO CATALINA ISLAND! It’s the season of the Aries!!!! There have been a lot of birthdays this month, my own included! Our most recent celebration took us to Catalina Island for a surprise birthday getaway for our friend Brittany, and some extra celebrating for myself 😉 I can’t even describe how gorgeous it is there!
The closest thing to a personal island getaway from our home in L.A., is Catalina Island! If you’ve never been, it’s about a 40 minute drive to the dock in Long Beach from Los Angeles, then we took a 45 minute boat ride to Catalina. I’m telling you, everyone deserves a vacation where you can unplug, reset, and refuel. It was just what we all needed and it couldn’t have been any more perfect!
The hotel was nestled right in the middle of town, surrounded by huge vibrant flowers and families of succulents. We even sat by the fire the night we arrived and went on the prowl for smores!
We stayed at the Pavilion, just a five minute walk from the pier and a hop and a skip away from the beach front restaurants and sand! P.S. They have the world’s best continental breakfast complete with the usual suspects from brekky and an assortment of fruit, pastries, and the best lattes!
This point here is actually where I got scuba certified last year, I mean just look at how clear the water is, so beautiful. This view was just a short walk from the hotel to the beach where you see the casino and surrounding boats, sadly we didn’t spot any bison on this trip! Next time!
Check out the video capturing our time in this beautiful place, up on my channel now!
These pictures only show you how beautiful the island is and where we stayed, but wait until you see what we got to do while we were there! Huge thank you to my beautiful and uber talented friend Brittany who took these photos! Happy birthday Brit, we love you!
It was so nice to have spent time with friends that know us and get us and I wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else! Do you have friends that just GET you and that you’d be neighbors with for life just to exchange morning chats and giggle fests with?
If you’ve never been to Catalina I hope you get to make your way there and check out the island and everything it has to offer. There’s so much to do and see there, and it inspired me to relaunch my travel series! Stay tuned and happy week to you!!!
