Hotel at a Glance: Zane Grey Pueblo Hotel

Perched on a hill on Catalina Island, this Hopi-style building was once home to Zane Grey, an American author best known for his adventure books about the Wild West and sportfishing. Like its former resident, Zane Grey Pueblo Hotel focuses on the outdoors; it has dazzling views of Avalon Bay and the surrounding mountains from the guest rooms and the front balcony.

  • Peace and quiet: There are no phones, TVs, or clocks in the guest rooms, and quiet hours are observed in all public areas from 10 p.m. to 10 a.m.
  • Lounge around at the arrow-shaped outdoor swimming pool.
  • Freebies include coffee, hot chocolate, tea, pool towels, and a mini continental breakfast with whole fruit and toast.
  • Explore the island: Go snorkeling at Lover’s Cove to see kelp forests and colorful garibaldi fish, or hike the Trans-Catalina Trail.

Catalina Island, California: Desert Foliage and Secluded Coves in the Pacific Ocean

The rocky Catalina Island is only about 22 miles southwest of Los Angeles, but it’s a world away from the crowded metropolis. For starters, there are hardly any cars here⎯golf carts are the preferred way to get around. Much of the island’s interior is unpopulated, home to a vast array of native desert foliage and wildlife. Visitors can hit the many secluded coves that dot the landscape for sunbathing or snorkeling in temperate waters among starfish, sea urchins, and bright-orange garibaldi. Travel + Leisure called these coves “ready-made for romance,” naming Catalina one of the world’s most romantic islands in 2010.

Much of Catalina Island is accessible only by challenging dirt trails, but you can see many of its endemic plants in town at the Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden. Some of the featured vegetation can only be found here, including wild tomato and rare Catalina mahogany. The memorial itself was designed to incorporate as much local material as possible, including quarried Catalina stones, blue flagstone rock from the harbor, and hand-painted tiles from a local pottery company.

You can get to the gardens by catching a taxi or tour bus from nearby Avalon, the island’s only major city. This small village, with a surrounding backdrop of steep, amphitheater-like hills, occupies only about 3% of the island. Still, it’s where most visitors spend the majority of their time, thanks to a popular beach, a lively harbor, and a surprising variety of restaurants. The most famous landmark here is the art-deco-style Casino building. Surrounded by the sea on three sides, the circular structure stands at the equivalent of 12 stories tall and houses an art gallery, a museum, and a theater.
