ROAD TRIP Ragged Point, CA


QUIETER THAN NEARBY Big Sur but with the same stunning views, Ragged Point is a spectacular cliff-top community overlooking the sea along Highway 1. You’ll know you’re getting closer as your phone gradually loses its signal. On the drive, explore the historic streets


of Cambria, a quaint town with little niche shops where you can pick up a stained-glass trinket or some local art. For a hearty brunch, head to Linn’s Restaurant (2277 Main St, Cambria, CA; 805-927-0371, linnsfruitbin .com), for pot pies, towering salads and fresh breads with fruit preserves. To help pass the time, check out the spot’s downstairs bakery and sample delicious pastries—just don’t ruin your appetite. Pack a beach towel and stop at Moonstone


Beach, a quiet spot on the coastline with a one-mile boardwalk and a great view of frolicking sea otters. During molting season, a trip to Friends of the Elephant Seal (Plaza del Cavalier, 250 San Simeon Ave, San Simeon, CA; 805-924-1628, elephantseal


Hearst Castle


.org) is a must; from the lookout point, hundreds of adorable elephant seals can be seen sunbathing and lazing about. Plan in advance for a tour of Hearst Castle


(750 Hearst Castle Rd, San Simeon, CA; 800- 444-4445, hearstcastle.org), the sprawling historic landmark mansion designed by architect Julia Morgan for newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. Pick from a variety of tours that focus on specific parts of the house (or do them all!); each one


ends with a peek at the castle’s ornate indoor pool. You’re free to explore on your own after. Once you arrive in Ragged Point, grab


an ocean-view room at seaside property Ragged Point Inn (19019 CA-1; 805-927- 4502, raggedpointinn.com), which has its own nature trail leading 300 feet down to a private beach. It’s a steep descent, and the Inn recommends it only for the fit and adventurous, so hikers beware. ■ Rozette Rago


IN SEASON Santa


Catalina Island, CA


NOW’S THE TIME to catch a ferry to Catalina; the weather is warm, the island is hopping, and the wine is flowing. Inspired by the upscale soiree


in Step Brothers (you’ll recall Will Ferrell’s sloshed shouting), the real-life Catalina Wine Mixer takes place at Descanso Beach Club in Avalon (1 St. Catherine Way; 877-778-8322, visitcatalinaisland.com) from September 22 to 24, with live bands, swag bags and plenty of wine pours from SoCal vintners. More into dive bars? Check out


the Marlin Club (108 Catalina Ave; 310-510-0044, marlinclub .com), where locals hold court around the jukebox and pool table. Hungry? Dine on fresh cilantro-lime mussels on the deck of Bluewater Grill (306


Descanso Beach Club


Crescent Ave; 310-510-3474, bluewatergrill.com) overlooking the ocean. For a peek into the island’s unique history, visit Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden (1402 Avalon Canyon Rd; 310- 510-2897, catalinaconservancy .org), where you can pay respect to former Chicago Cubs owner William Wrigley Jr., who once owned 90 percent of the island. He’s also the man responsible


for Catalina’s booming buffalo population: Wrigley agreed to give the beasts free roam of the island’s interior when they were abandoned there in the 1920s after a Western movie shoot. If you have time, split your


trip between Avalon and the sleepier town of Two Harbors on Catalina’s east side. There’s not much there by way of nightlife (or shopping or dining, for that matter), but if you want to hike,


71


snorkel, kayak or camp, Two Harbors is the place to do it. While hiking, keep an eye out for the famous buffalo, as well as bald eagles and the endangered Island Fox, one of the smallest foxes in the world at an average of just five pounds. Along the coast, emerald green waters lap at scalloped, sandy beaches accessible only by boat or kayak, which you can rent from Two Harbors Dive & Recreation Center (1 W Banning House Rd; 310-510- 4272), along with paddleboards and snorkeling gear. You’ll feel miles away from Avalon (and light-years from L.A.). ■ Kate Wertheimer
