                  Avalon Details

                  Off of the coast of California, the town small Santa Catalina Island is found. Avalon is the only city on the island, though the island is considered part of Los Angeles County. There is an unincorporated town on the island, called Two Harbors, but about 3,200 of the island’s 3,500 people live in Avalon. The island is a popular tourist attraction, and the coastline is dotted with shops and small houses that give it a charming appearance from the bay. Apartment complexes exist on the island, but they are hidden out of view from the coast. Your discount hotel in Avalon will give you the chance to experience this lazy and lovely Californian island up close.The island is visited today in a large part for the town’s trails that take you through the countryside. But during World War II, the military took over the island and closed it to tourists. You can learn more about the island’s history at the Catalina Island Museum. Two other popular stops include the Botanical Gardens and the Wrigley Memorial.
