    I'm going to Huntington Beach for two days and was wondering if I should spend a day at Catalina Island. Is it worth it for only one day? I hear its great for snorkeling which I like to do. Anyone been there?

    You won't find a better place to snorkel in SoCal unless you go to San Diego

    Eat on mainland food on cataLina is overpriced garbage. I'm serious. Eat on land, pack a sandwich for cat. Don't buy food there.

    I remember reading that on Huntington Beach they straight vandalize your shit if you're not a local. The beach douches hate tourists

    Better take the gf's car bro

    Huntington Beach is like some shit outta the movies for a boy from Montana. I was in awe the whole time. Good food, unreal ladies.

    I went to Catalina on vacation a few years ago. I loved it.
    We did the trip on the cheap, Ferried to Two Harbors, camped there for two days, took the bus to Avalon, and camped there for two days.

    Most people go to Avalon, but I thought Two Harbors was awesome. Tiny, super chill, awesome snorkeling.
    The bus ride is pretty amazing as well.

    No its not worth it. I go there on the family boat every couple of months. If you can spend 5 days there on a vacation it is amazing. But one day is kind of a waste of your money. If you want to rent a place for a week I recommend you check Airbnb months in advance, housing is so ridiculous in Avalon that shiitttty rentals are expensive.

    I considered working there at one point but you need to have 2 jobs to afford rent there.

    I was just there at the end of July. Yeh, it is worth a one day trip. Go snorkeling at the various places, and if you like you can book a SCUBA trip too. I wanted to do some shark cage diving, but no one could point me in the right direction. Or if you big on fishing, you can book that or go whale spotting.

    Is Huntingdon Beach ghetto or at least close to Long Beach in those terms? It is in the OC, so I always thought it was affluent.

    HB is a nice, wealthy, white neighborhood. LB has some...decent parts to it I guess but it's pretty fucking ratchet.
