Makes me want to go out, buy an RV and go see all the lighthouses in the world! I love lighthouses, and to have so many in one place, even if they're "just" replicas, is great! Thanks, Samantha.

Cool idea, lighthouses all over. Do boaters on the lake count on them, or just for fun?

They are cool to see. Some are just for fun, but many of them do actually light up to help the boaters.

Re: Top 7 Things to do in Avalon – Catalina Island

PHeymont ·
I've never really had Catalina on my list, but it's been in my head for nearly 60 years since the Four Preps song told me that "26 miles across the sea, Santa Catalina is waiting for me..." For any others who remember (or would like to), here's a YouTube link...

Thanks Samantha, great report! I'm from Southern California and I sure miss going to Catalina. My favorite thing has to be watching the flying fish as you take the ferry across. They used to rent motorboats to go around the island yourself, which was cool. Do they still do that?

I only visited Catalina once in the ~25 years I lived in Southern California, but I remember it being exactly as you describe it -- a quieter place that's well away from the glam, glitz and adrenaline-paced speed of the mainland. We also did an island tour and enjoyed that. Mr. Wrigley introduced a herd of bison on to the island which are still very popular.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Loved the song! Hadn't heard it for a LONG time. Not being near the ocean is the hardest thing (besides missing family/friends) about being in CO. But that's what vacations are for, right? Thanks again all.
