Husband, 12 YO daughter, and I are planning a trip on a Sunday in mid March, 2014 for what looks to be a fabulous visit to Avalon. We want to take the Catalina Express from Long Beach but are requesting suggestions re; timing. Earliest shuttle to arrive early moring? If so...what options for attractions should we hit that early? Tide pools? Golf cart rental? Shopping and other ticket counters (for attractions) probably won't open that early... We love a good beach (but I'm sure morning temps will limit that activity). Not so much into hiking but love to stroll. Our return time is open also. Thanks for the advice!
