Here are our favorites! Check out visitanaheim.org for the full list.
If visitors have a full day to spare, Disneyland® Resort is a crown jewel of greater Orange County. Two theme parks—Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure—entertain all ages, while hotels offer dining, spa and character experiences. Those short on time can visit the Downtown Disney® District, where specialty shops like the LEGO Store are nestled between fun restaurant concepts such as Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen.
An outdoor promenade, Anaheim GardenWalk is located just across the street from the convention center. The three-level shopping plaza features an array of businesses that represent the varied landscape of Orange County entertainment and dining, including the iconic House of Blues®, Artists Republic Gallery, Mission Escape Games, Rumba Room Live and Grasslands Meat Market.
Offering pickup from dozens of Anaheim hotels, Starline Tours transports passengers up and down the coast for sightseeing tours of Los Angeles, Hollywood and San Diego. Options include a city and shopping extravaganza in San Diego, narrated tours of celebrity mansions and hop-on/hop-off passes to explore Hollywood at your own pace.
