Anaheim City Guide
Anaheim, California is synonymous with Disneyland, the most frequently-visited theme park in the world, and if that’s not reason enough to move here, I don’t know what is. With a population of 336,265—and that’s not including Mickey and his friends—a Mediterranean climate, and a 15% lower crime rate than the state average, it’s no wonder it’s called the Happiest Place On Earth. Technically that moniker is for Disneyland, but it suits the surrounding city, too.
In 1857 Anaheim was founded by Germans who named it: “Ana” for the Santa Ana River, and “Heim,” which is German for “home.” As you explore your new home, be sure to stop by the Anaheim Garden Walk Shopping Center for dining, shopping, and entertainment. Enjoy the seafood at the Forrest Gump-inspired restaurant or dinner theater at Houdini’s Hideaway. For fun that doesn’t involve talking mice, check out the UltraLuxe Anaheim Cinemas, a state-of-the-art theater with adjustable seats and seat-side food and alcohol delivery.
If you work at Disneyland you may find your house cluttered up with your numerous elaborate costumes and props. Declutter your home by renting a local self-storage unit!
Believe it or not, there are plenty of things to do in this city that aren’t anywhere near “Walt Disney’s America,” like the Orange County Symphony, the Anaheim Ballet, and the Art Crawl Experience—a quarterly event that showcases local artists’ work in the blocked-off streets of downtown. Tired of crowds? Get out of the city and enjoy the 140-acre Yorba Regional Park where you can hike, cycle, or sail. Pearson Park is in the heart of the city, and includes tennis courts, trails, and a lake.
Anaheim’s annual Halloween Parade (since 1924!) is an event not to be missed—it’s been dubbed the “biggest Halloween party in the nation” and consists of 1.5 miles of downtown streets dedicated to a carnival of ghosts, witches, and goblins. To work off all that eating and drinking, visit the Sky Zone, the world’s first indoor trampoline park where freestyle bouncing, dodgeball, and SkyRobics classes makes fitness fun. For a low-key experience, check out Ink and Bean Coffee Saloon where you can enjoy a cup of coffee, live music, book signings, and writers’ workshops.
If you indulge in the Halloween Parade, you may find your house cluttered up with your numerous elaborate costumes and props. Declutter your home by renting a unit at a nearby self-storage facility!
