Visitors may overlook the fact people who work on Catalina also live there. The "flats" of Avalon are densely built up with homes for permanent residents. Car usage is severely restricted on Catalina, so most residents use a golf cart to get around.

There is a supermarket on Catalina Avenue, behind the tourist area along the waterfront. This is an essential resource for campers as well as residents.
