You're Going to Love Anaheim

Located in southern Los Angeles, Anaheim is one of America's finest tourist destinations, mainly thanks to the presence of Disneyland California. Disney's massive entertainment complex draws 18 million visitors annually, and while it's a good reason to visit Anaheim in itself, it is a mere fraction of what the city has to offer.

Anaheim's city center is an oasis of calm away from both LA and Disneyland. In pedestrianized areas like Center Street, you can shop at farmers' markets, window shop for crafts and designer clothing, and dine al fresco in Hawaiian, Mexican, or Italian eateries.

Sports fans can watch the Ducks in the NHL or the Angels in Major League Baseball, while all visitors can take the Orange County Line into LA to sample the city's nightlife and tourist attractions. Whether you just want to visit Disneyland or you need a base to explore LA, Anaheim is ideal.

Whether you are visiting for Disneyland or not, head to Anaheim outside high tourist season to avoid the worst of the crowds. Between March and May, school isn't out yet, and the weather will be fine. Fall is another good time to go. The crowds will be receding, and there are events in town like the Fest of Ales to enjoy.
