AVALON HOME TOUR, an afternoon-long peek inside "some of Avalon's most memorable homes." The Catalina Island Medical Center Foundation is the event's beneficiary, and a quintet of houses are on the map. But you won't need to drive your golf cart to each, as transportation is provided. A ticket? It's sixty bucks. Finally getting to know what it is like to live on a gorgeous island all year long? We can ponder such things from our hotel room, as we gaze out at the local houses dotting the Avalon hills, or we can go a bit deeper and see what it is like to live full-time on this bison-beautiful, flying fish-fantastic, beachy-fun slice of olde California.
