Tip of the week
Taking a short cruise from the Port of Long Beach? If it’s your first time visiting Santa Catalina, you’ll have plenty of shore excursion choices. Instead of signing up on the ship, take the tinder to the island and make the short walk up the street to Golf Cart Rentals & Tours. A do-it-yourself tour of the island is a good way to see it, from the mountains to the beach. A two-hour rental for four people costs $90.
