One of the most romantic places on Catalina is the Wrigley Botanical Garden. It is a peaceful place to sit and meditate among the beautiful variety of plants that grow in the chaparral environment of the island. It is very educational to walk through the information center and to learn about the geological history of the island. The garden walkway meanders around the variety of plant life with name tags at the bottom soil. We walked over bridges and sat on benches surrounded by trees and listened to the sound of birds rustling in the leaves. It was very romantic and peaceful. It was a perfect way to spend our Sunday.

We walked from Avalon to the Wrigley Memorial and then onward to the Garden in the Sky trail marker (tough climb), and back to Avalon. It was a long way (10 miles), but worth the effort. The Memorial building is a super cool example of Art Deco architecture. This is well worth the time.

I was really hoping to see something as amazing as wild and crazy from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, after all, William Wrigley Jr was one rich AF American during his time. Both Wrigley and Wonka were uber wealthy right? It's still an impressive moment, sort of. A long curving stone staircase leads to a fairly tall arched tower with some colorful tiles, a fountain(not running during my visit; drought?), a forum, and...and..and...that's pretty much it. No big "WOW" factor. No outrageous William Wrigley Jr statue. No Wrigley Gum sculptures. No golden ticket. No 3 course dinner gum that turns your into a blueberry. No Oompa Loompas singing silly sonnets, though there were some bratty kids running around. Oh, and there's cactuses, lots and lots of different kinds of cactuses. $8, I'll probably won't return again. Perhaps there is something more awesome for Wrigley in his hometown of Chicago
