If you and your partner want to make your friends at home jealous with cute photos of you two biking, eating caramel apples, or taking a food tour, you won't find a more picturesque place than Avalon. As the only city on Catalina Island, it offers botanical gardens, casinos, places to fish, and boat tours with underwater views. Add Lovers Cove to your list of must-visit places. While it may be too chilly for some to snorkel and dive, Lovers Cove is a great spot to enjoy a picnic and relax on the beach.
