You'll find plenty of things to see and do in Anaheim, the second largest city in Orange County. There are inviting beaches, unparalleled shopping and entertainment, trendy restaurants, sexy nightlife, championship golf, lively art districts, beautiful historic landmarks and the ultimate family attractions. Warm sunshine, swaying palm trees and breathtaking ocean views create a relaxed lifestyle where shorts, sandals and sunglasses are always in season.
Orange County itself abounds with everything that defines the Southern Californian lifestyle - a warm Mediterranean climate, sandy beaches filled with surfers and sun seekers, restaurants serving fresh and creative cuisines, and world-famous amusement parks - like Knotts Berry Farm, Universal Studios Hollywood, and Six Flags Magic Mountain - that provide constant thrills. Located between Los Angeles and San Diego, it stretches from the main coastal cities of Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, and Laguna Beach to the inland communities of Irvine, Orange, and Anaheim.
The county is named after the citrus groves that used to populate the landscape. Today, it is home to some of the wealthiest ZIP codes in the country and priciest real estate in the world. For a taste of this luxurious lifestyle, take an L.A. Shopping tour or an "O.C. Experience" tour of Newport Beach and Fashion Island. But along with high-end luxury, there still remains a casual attitude where flips-flops and board shorts are as common as Jimmy Choo shoes and Gucci accessories. From arts, cultural and historical hotspots, like Bowers Museum of Cultural Art and Mission San Juan Capistrano, to sports - the Anaheim Ducks and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are both based here - you'll discover all that California has to offer in Orange County.
