For over half a century people have flocked to Anaheim to experience the wonder of Disneyland, but this city in southern California has more to offer than just the mouse! Its weather is superb and it's within 30 minutes of SoCal's beaches. This area can get a tad expensive, but Travelocity can help you easily find cheap flights to Anaheim, CA!
Attractions to Visit in Anaheim
Disneyland is the most popular attraction in Anaheim. It draws large crowds year round. If Disney is your single vacation destination, you won't need a car. Disney has ample transportation. If you're not staying at a Disney property, many of the surrounding hotels still offer shuttle service. While this place is quite magical, the rest of Anaheim has a lot to offer, too.
You'll find many other exciting attractions in Anaheim. Adventure City is sure to please the younger crowd, with a Thomas the Tank Engine train-building area, a mini Ferris wheel, and other rides. The tickets are less expensive than Disney and it's less crowded.
For families with older children or those grownups who are still kids at heart, Knott's Berry Farm in nearby Buena Park, is the amusement park of choice, with tickets costing about half what Disney's tickets cost. There, you'll find a bevy of coasters to keep the thrills going all day.
For the Active Vacationer
A number of fun physical activities await you at Yorba Regional Park. From bicycling to horseback riding, jogging to paddleboats, this lush park has everything you could hope to find!
The Flightdeck Air Combat Center will get your heart pumping. From the moment you step into the mock cockpit in flight gear to the moment you complete training, you'll begin to feel like a character from Top Gun. After engaging in dog fighting and death-defying aerial maneuvers, you'll be insisting your friends call you Maverick. No matter how realistic your training, please remember it doesn't license you to pilot any flights to Anaheim, California, or anywhere else for that matter. Another thing to remember: this attraction fills up, so book it at least a week out.
For Those Who Prefer Relaxation
If you'd rather watch baseball than play it, the Angels Stadium of Anaheim is the perfect spot to do so. In addition to catching a game in season, visitors can dine at one of the three full-service restaurants on site. If you come during batting practice, which starts two hours before and ends 40 minutes before the game starts, you just might snag a player's autograph.
Downtown Disney offers unusual shopping and dining options. Sample some chocolate or build a Lego car. The themed restaurants allow you to choose between dining in a rain forest or a sports zone. Downtown Disney offers the same magic you've come to expect from Disney, making it some of the most entertaining shopping you'll ever do.
The MUZEO Museum and Cultural Center is a great place to see some terrific fine art and get a taste of Anaheim's rich heritage and culture. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday.
Best Time to Visit
Anaheim flights are the cheapest during the border seasons of mid-to-late spring and early-to-mid fall. The weather is enjoyable during these times and the lines at the parks will be shorter because school is back in session. Those who visit in May will be able to catch the Taste of Anaheim, while those who put off their visit until the fall can experience the Anaheim Fall Festival & Halloween Parade as well as Halloweentime at Disney September-October.
