If you’re like me, every year your birthday rolls around and you go into stressed out ‘What should I do?’ mode? Throw a party? Have a small dinner? Wing it? Do nothing? Hey now, you are supposed to CELEBRATE your birthday and have fun, not dread it. So good news, I now have the PERFECT way to spend your birthday and it involves incredible weather, freebies and an island adventure!
This year indulge on your birthday and spend it on Catalina Island like me! Catalina is quickly getting the nickname the Birthday Island for their great deals on island activities, shopping, dining and lodging AND you get to ride for FREE on your birthday on the Catalina Express! Watch and enjoy my Catalina Island birthday adventure and see what I mean:
As you can tell, I had the BEST time! Let’s break down my adventure!
I booked my birthday trip over by registering for the Catalina Express birthday promo. Please note you MUST travel on your actual birthday. Once your register, you’ll see all the amazing birthday deals you can get!
I stayed at the lovely Avalon Hotel. The rooms are spacious and the location is incredible. They have a fabulous sun deck, free breakfast and I of course loved the complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival. And the staff is so helpful and cheery 🙂
I enjoyed some of the BEST meals at the Lobster Trap and Bluewater Grill. My suggestion, enjoy the fresh seafood and trust the bartender for your cocktails. And I simply can’t get over how FRIENDLY everyone was! Can you believe I made friends so quickly I stayed an extra day to go out on their boat?? AMAZING! One of my friends on the boat was telling me about their lovely birthday present they got recently. She got a brand new car for her business along with some fantastic traders insurance. Jealous! But happy for my friend!
Whether you love water sports, hiking, shopping, wining or dining or just want to relax, there is truly something for everyone on Catalina Island. This really was such a wonderful and memorable way to spend my birthday! Everyone was so sweet and hospitable and it so easy get to from Los Angeles. I will most definitely be back!!
