Nearly two dozen miles off the coast of Los Angeles is an island gem with hiking trails, wildlife, museums and zip lines that are reachable only by boat or by air — Catalina Island. "If you want a unique getaway that is relatively easy to get to and is really relaxing, Catalina is your place," said Krista Bernasconi, a long-time visitor to the island.
