Go to Catalina, it's your birthday...

No, seriously. Catalina Express, the ferry that takes travelers to Catalina Island and back, started offering free round-trip birthday rides last year. If you want to take advantage of them before they run out (and if your birthday is this month or next month), now's your moment -- the offer expires on April 30.

The only requirements are that you start travel on your actual birthday, and come back within 30 days. Of course you will also have to bring an I.D.
