Spring and fall both bring sunny skies and mild weather, with highs in the upper 60s. In December and January, you can usually expect highs around 60, along with occasional rainstorms.

Below are reviews of the city of Avalon, CA from an actual visitor's perspective.

"Nice Stay"
Score 4.0 / 5

The island is very quaint. The new Vons is awesome. We loved Jack's for breakfast, affordable great home cooked food. The little walk up counter burger place with a patio to eat on has great $6 burgers and good onion rings. It's on the corner of the main street across from the golf cart rental. The El Galleon for Kareoke is really fun.
