    Mrs. BBAM and I are heading to the island in December for our honeymoon. I'm looking for suggestions, tips and advice from the SportsJournalists.com crowd. Spew your knowledge on me, oh great ones.

    Can I be the first to say, "Catalina wine mixer?"

    Be careful that this doesn't happen to you.

    I thought this thread was going to be about salad dressing.

    FYI, I don't think you can rent a car there.[/jayfarrar]
     
  10. I was hoping it was about the girl (with pictures) from My Name is Earl. She is sooooo hot.

    It's really, really, really touristy. The only ways to get around, aside from on foot, are on golf-carts (you can only go on approved roads) or segways, and both are expensive. They have a nice little golf course, where they've preserved the old Cubs spring training club house. It's a nice place, but really, not a whole lot to do. Went on a cruise that stopped there earlier this year and pretty much saw all I wanted to see in the span of 2 hours.

    Also, if you get arrested, you have to pay your way back to Long Beach for processing.

    Absolutely beautiful though. I'm sure it'll be a great place for a honeymoon.
