A 75 minute boat ride from San Pedro is an easy and fun getaway for Los Angeles locals: Catalina Island. It was a bit of a random decision to go here but turned out to be my favourite place I visited on my recent CaliTrip (see my L.A. recap here).

You can rent golf carts and drive them around the island, allowing you not only easy access to random beaches and great views along the way but it's also super fun! I definitely recommend this if you're ever in the area.
