Destination Third Thursday: Anaheim

By Ashley Bisek 07/23/2021

The Visit California team took a virtual trip to Southern California to learn about Anaheim tourism from Visit Anaheim, Disneyland, and Strong Water. Anaheim is located in the heart of Southern California, between Los Angeles and San Diego. The city boasts the original Disneyland Resort, hip hangouts and breweries, exquisite culinary experiences and is located minutes away from Orange County beaches.

Anaheim is a magnet for leisure travel and home to the West Coast’s largest convention center, the Anaheim Convention Center. The city had eight new hotels open within the last year, three being luxury properties: Radisson Blu Anaheim, JW Marriott, Anaheim Resort, and The Westin Anaheim Resort. These hotels are close in proximity to Disneyland Resort and the Convention Center. They all offer their own unique amenities and each sports a rooftop bar with stunning city views.   

Disneyland is open again, as is the highly anticipated Avengers Campus at California Adventure Park. Here visitors can immerse themselves into the cinematic universe of Marvel and explore attractions, amazing food and beverages, and heroic encounters. This attraction is only available at Disneyland California.

Anaheim’s vibrant theme parks have rubbed off on the city’s businesses, as evidenced by the colorful Strong Water Anaheim tiki bar, which sports Disney quality tiki sculptures, interactive displays and some of the world’s best (and most authentic) cocktails.

Another popular spot for food and drinks is the Anaheim Packing District. Originally built in 1919 as a citrus packing house, it’s now a hub for locals and visitors. With over twenty different vendors including a wine bar, brewery, speak easy, and restaurants of all types, it’s a great stop for the whole family.  

Sports fans can catch a game at Angel Stadium, or Honda Center home to the Anaheim Ducks. The Orange County region is also home to South Coast Plaza, a popular shopping destination where you can shop from a variety of popular brands.

With so much development and new spots to explore, Anaheim is one of California’s best destinations for mixing work and play.
