Anaheim, CA Travel Tips
- Disneyland: Anaheim lives and breathes Disney, but it's worth it. Check with the city visitor center for deals and add a little magic to your trip.
- Knott's Berry Farm and Soak City: Don't let the name fool you - this is the oldest theme park in the country that was home to the first modern rollercoaster, the Corkscrew. Knott's will turn kids of all ages upside down with laughs, and don't miss the adjacent water park.
- Legoland: It's a bit of a drive - just outside San Diego - but it's literally built for kids to play!
- Discovery Science Center: Located in nearby Santa Ana, it's always got something new, and there are plenty of hands-on exhibits for kids.
To See & Do
- On a budget: There are plenty of free or cheap attractions, such as the Bowers Museum and the Fullerton Arboretum [subject to individual schedules]. The stand out attraction is the Great Park Balloon Rides.
- Beaches: There's no shortage in SoCal. Huntington Beach, Newport Beach and Laguna Beach are only a few, and every beach has its own activities, whether its surfing, kayaking, or long walks.
- Theme parks: Disney and Knott's aren't the only ones. Universal Studios Hollywood and Sea World San Diego offer completely different options for fun.
- Medieval Times and Pirates Dinner Adventure: There are few dinner-and-a-show restaurants that can top the interactive family fun that these two offer. Step into a different time, eat a hearty meal, and watch knights or pirates battle it out.
- San Diego and L.A.: One of the best parts about vacation houses for rent in Anaheim is that you don't have to miss out on the experiences of nearby locales. Whether you want to take a tour of Hollywood or the zoo at Griffith Park in L.A., or the Children's Museum and San Diego Zoo, it's all only a car ride away.
When to Visit
Anaheim is known as the "Mouse's House" but there's a lot more to this area of California than Disneyland. This city is ideal for thrill seekers, sports and outdoor enthusiasts, as well as those who enjoy cultural events. An Anaheim vacation rental can help you see it all with an economical home base.
Things to DoAnaheim is an amusement park junky's dream. With Disneyland, nearby SeaWorld San Diego, LEGOLAND California, and Knott's Berry Farm all within a short drive, you could spend an entire vacation just at the parks.
But parks aren't the only source of entertainment in this fantasy-fueled town. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy games year round with the Anaheim Ducks (hockey), Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (baseball), Los Angeles KISS (arena football), and a host of nearby college teams. If you prefer your own sports, Anaheim's weather makes it the perfect spot to get in some golf, enjoy rollerblading, stand-up paddle boarding, boating, sports fishing, hiking, and biking.
Its location also makes whale watching a top activity among locals and visitors alike.
TransitUnless you plan on staying in an Anaheim vacation rental within walking distance of the park and spend your entire vacation exploring Disneyland only, you'll want a car. With a car you have access to the ocean, the many amusement parks, tons of outdoor recreation spots, and shopping. While you could see some of the nearby areas on a tour bus company or through Anaheim's easy public transportation (check out the new ARTIC), a rental car offers the most options and flexibility.
While a car gives you flexibility, it will also add expense. In addition to the rental fee (if you don't bring your own) the amusement parks have steep parking charges, most between $15-$20 a day.
ClimateAnaheim is in Orange County (OC), which means mild winters and sun-filled days. The average temperature is 70 degrees with sunny skies about 70 percent of the time. Summers are hot but with cool evenings. Smart travelers bring layers.
EventsPartly due to its fantastic weather and mix of cultures, Anaheim is host to a number of events and festivals throughout the year. March brings the much-anticipated OC Restaurant Week where restaurants throughout the county offer amazing food on prix-fixe menus. The parks also host a number of holiday-related events. In this area, whale migration is even an event. Don't miss winter's California Grey Whale or the summer's blue whales frolicking off the coast in nearby Dana Point.
ShoppingOrange County takes their shopping seriously. Many OC shopping locations offer shuttle service from the Anaheim resort district. Also don't miss the Center Street Promenade in downtown Anaheim where you can find unique shops and artisans.
An Anaheim vacation rental keeps you in the middle of all the excitement but provides you with the comforts of a laid back California lifestyle. Many of the places have pools where you can create your own private oasis. These vacation homes are the perfect spot from which to explore or escape to, depending on your preference.
