PAVILION NIGHT: Avalon is not the largest of cities, and nor should it be; when you occupy part of a small-ish island, you want to stay beautiful and perfectly sized. So when something new comes along, it is notable. The Pavilion Hotel recently debuted, and there is a new package to introduce visitors to both the hotel and some classic Catalina Island fun.
ZIPPITY DO: Book a room at the Pavilion on a Sunday through Thursday night and get a few excellent extras, like a Free Eco Zip Line Tour for one (per room and per night, note) and one free ferry transport (again, per room and per night; book two nights and get two). It's called the "Free Boat, Free Zip, and Free Tours Package," it is available through April 14, 2011. There are some details to know, about double occupancy and starting prices, so read on.
OH, AND WINE AND CHEESE: In the afternoon. The hotel wind-down. Complimentary. So fine after zoomin' down a line.
