Catalina Island is the perfect “staycation” destination for adventure or relaxing

Catalina Island is the perfect weekend getaway, or for those living near the coast of Southern California, “staycation.”

Located only 22 miles from the coast, it’s a short boat ride to paradise where visitors can do everything from exploring the island’s natural beauty to relaxing at an upscale vacation rental.

Our Audra Stafford shows you how to make the most of your stay at Catalina like kayaking around the island, watching sea creatures underneath the waves at lover’s cove, and where to eat after working up an appetite.

For this and more, watch Audra’s story below. Or tune into this week’s episode of California Life with Heather Dawson airing statewide.
