not unless you wanna rent a helicopter or a yacht. you need to go with the flow here. the catalina express ferry has a nice bar with very limited food. we go from long beach since thats where we fly into.

went to solvang this year for the first time, it was entirely forgettable, just worth a drive thru, maybe stop for coffee and a snack or go to a bakery. just my opinion.

catalina is a great place to RELAX. watch out for the dive- ish motels. our fav stay is portofino in the portofino suite. beautiful. fav place to eat....portofino as well. we also bring our own wine but being from the wine country, we are picky. there is a small grocery store on a side street from portofinos but they have limited supplies.

fun little shops and places to eat on the water

Solvang is a good place to get a bowl of pea soup, then leave.
