Anaheim


Attracting visitors from around the world, Anaheim hosts millions of people who flock to the city that beholds the “Happiest Place on Earth.” Founded in 1857 by German immigrants, it became an industrial center and agricultural site for orange groves past the turn of the century. This all changed in 1955 with the opening of Disneyland, which is when Anaheim was put on the map of international tourism. The influx of people inspired the spawning of other parks such as the Anaheim Angels Stadium, Anaheim Convention Center, and Knott’s Berry Farm (in Buena Park). The Downtown area of Anaheim is notable for its historic preservation, particularly in the Anaheim Colony neighborhood. When visiting Anaheim, there is no shortage of places to stay. From the Hilton to the Portofino Inn to the Marriott and more, there are plenty of centrally located hotels at a range of prices. Popular music venues include the House of Blues and the Glasshouse.
