Las Fajitas Mexican Grill might serve up its Mexican dishes fast, but that's where the similarities between this eatery and typical fast-food places end. Along with the chefs' attention to using the freshest ingredients, from the vegetables to the boneless, skinless chicken breasts and slow-roasted pork, they also remain health conscious. All of the authentic Mexican recipes get their flavors from only fresh vegetables, with no artificial flavors or enhancements. The menu includes everything from burritos and tacos to fresh seafood and breakfast options.

Armed with a round trip boat ticket, visitors from four mainland California ports can explore the island for anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks.

Having grown up on a farm in central Canada, Marlowe Huber already knew about crop harvesting and soil when he began making wine in the early 1980s.
