GadlingTV's Travel Talk - Zip Lining on Catalina Island



GadlingTV's Travel Talk, episode 21 – Click above to watch video after the jump

In part one of our Catalina adventure, we surprised Aaron with a trip to the island for some quality undersea exploration. Now, join us as we explore more of the island for some zip lining, a tour of the famous Casino in Avalon, and yes, more scuba diving.

Located 22 miles southwest of Los Angeles, Catalina Island has a rich history as a private island and as a tourist destination. On the couch, we'll talk about some of the many people who have claimed ownership to the island and why Avalon's iconic casino isn't the gambling type, and how Catalina is looking to boost their tourism industry once more.
