hotels, b&bs, or camping: catalina vacation fun and deals!

i have two exciting tidbits today:
(1) i found some great deals on stellar activities and lodging on catalina island and...
(2) my camping in catalina article was just published on!

i name this day... catalina day!

(linked to my article!)

catalina is just an hour away by boat. the island boasts so many activities, you probably won't be able to do them all in one trip! but it's worth a try.

let me show you what kinds of can't miss deals i found:

so i stumbled upon where i found awesome deals on a zip-line package that includes your catalina express boat round trip tickets, 2 nights lodging at the "hotel atwater" and a zip-line ecotour!

some packages will be cheaper than others depending on the date, number of people, and type of room. i was able to find a zip-line package for 2 people, 2 nights, starting september 25th for under $500! click -here- to view the rooms and rates.

you can also stay at the historical banning house, in two harbors!

lastly, i found a charming bed and breakfast place in avalon called the old turner inn where you can rent a 2-person room for $180-$220 a night! if you have a family of four, you can rent a room for $240-$280 a night! click -here- to view the rooms and rates.
