You’re on Island Time…

The archway located at the intersection of Casino Way and Crescent Avenue has stood for decades as the portal to something exciting.  Whether heading to the majestic Catalina Casino building for a dance, a movie, graduation, or a wedding, there is just something fascinating about passing under the Via Casino structure.  Perhaps it still holds the energy & excitement from every person who passed that way before.  Just check it out the next time you walk towards the west side of town.  The stress and the tension seem to melt away, the sound of the ocean and the cool air surround you.  Your stride becomes a stroll.  You’re on island time now and all is right with the world.
