Treat yourself to free island paradise.
“26 miles across the sea, Santa Catalina is waiting for me,” Bing Crosby sang back in 1942. ‘Tis true - Catalina’s an easy boat ride and getaway from LA, and has a wonderfully relaxing ambience. Just to make it even easier, you can ride to and from Catalina on your birthday until April 30, 2014. Considering an adult roundtrip ticket is $74.50, this is a pretty great deal, and leaves you with lots of cash for a drink on that boat, eating on the island, or putting toward a ticket for Catalina’s zipline with an ocean view: http://flavorpill.com/events/catalina-zip-line-eco-tour
