What I would like to see change is to lower the cost of living. In average, a one bedroom apartment might cost around $1300 plus other living expenses might be out of hand. I do understand that Disneyland might be one of the causes that allow the value of certain properties to go up but this is insane! For the most part, the residents of Anaheim are humble people that spent their days working hard. The nightlife in Anaheim is basically dead. All the nightlife from Anaheim migrates to Fullerton, to be more specific Downtown Fullerton. Which is not so far from Anaheim. Anaheim is a great place to raise a family because as much as it is filled with tough people who will not take attitude from others, it is filled with kind and humble people that love to help one another.

Anaheim is a large city and there is great culture down to the roots besides the main tourist attractions like Disneyland, the Honda Center, and Angel's Stadium. We are spoiled with an array of authentic food from different cultures like Ethiopian, Middle Eastern, Mexican, Peruvian, Polish, Dutch, German, Greek, and many more! There is always something to do in Anaheim
I should start off by saying I have been a resident of Anaheim my entire life! For many people Anaheim is known just for "Disneyland" but to me, his could not be further from the truth. I have witnessed this city build and transform immensely. The downtown Anaheim area is buzzing with new trendy restaurants and bars. Many parks have been updated as well as new hiking trails! My favorite aspect of Anaheim is the friendly demeanor many residents have!
