Anaheim: The Hometown of Mickey Mouse
A vast and modernized city in Orange County 40 kilometers apart from Downtown Los Angeles, Anaheim is known for its Disneyland Resort locations. Apart from all that, this place is also quite popular for its convention center known as the Anaheim Convention Center which is the greatest convention center available on the West Coast.
This place was founded by a group of Bavarian farmers and German winemakers in 1857. Later, this place turned into citrus orchards (orange and lemon orchards to be precise) colonized with the rural communities. You can get your hands on the area’s local fresh produces at the Farmer’s Market.
Most of the time, people travel to Anaheim for its iconic Disneyland which is the landmark of California, and to meet the Disney characters and have an experience of their stories. When the parades and rides of Disneyland are over, one may always amuse themselves on the ever-popular Sunset Beach which is just a few minute's drives away.
Whenever sports are considered, this palace is heaven in these terms. If you’re a baseball fan then head straight to the Angel Stadium, also addressed as The Big A, being home to one of the most famous and highly professional baseball league teams; the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. And if you’re a fan of hockey then pay a visit to the Honda Center which is also known as the Pond; a famous place to enjoy major hockey events and games.
