Catalina Island, California

Catalina Island, California

Catalina Island, located off the southern coast of California, is the home of the Mediterranean-style town of Avalon, with its small-town charm and circular Moorish-style casino (now used as a concert venue) on the harbor. The population of 2,500 swells to nearly 20,000 in season, yet three-quarters of the island remains undeveloped. The picturesque island is a popular setting for movies. In fact, a herd of buffalo abandoned years ago by a film crew still roams the interior sections of this island.
