Southern California’s recent heat wave sometimes makes it difficult to remember that fall is just around the corner, but the time available for a summer getaway is quickly running out. Fortunately, one of the best times for a Catalina summer getaway is the last time for a Catalina summer getaway.
Santa Catalina Island has seen record crowds this summer, with perfect weather and a wealth of new activities and experiences creating an irresistible combination for Southern California travel enthusiasts. Most Catalina island visitors think they’ve got to wait until fall to beat those summer crowds, but the last two weeks of August often offer a chance for a Catalina Island summer vacation without quite as many fellow travelers. Many schools are back in session beginning August 24 and for those that aren’t, parents are often making last minute preparations for when school does start. For those who can escape school obligations, Catalina Island in late summer offer the perfect respite from the mainland, with cooler temperatures, sea breezes and a carefree attitude perfect for this idyllic Island.
Catching that last wave of summer for a Catalina Island vacation is even easier, thanks to Catalina Island Vacation Rentals. CIVR will be offering an end-of-summer special offer of 50 percent off on stays between August 23 and August 27 (must reserve by August 22, certain restrictions apply).
