Anaheim is known for being the birthplace of Disneyland, but it’s actually so much more than that! This medium-sized city sits in Orange County, CA, which is a little slice of heaven itself. In addition to being home to the greatest theme park in the world, Anaheim is also home to the two-story Anaheim Packing House food hall filled with unique and innovative restaurants. This food hall was once a packing house (place where workers received and packaged fruits) in the 1920’s and was even home to an antique store that I frequented with my grandparents as a very young child in the 1990’s. The city of Anaheim is also home to art culture with the Anaheim Ballet studio and the Muzeo, a contemporary museum just down the street from both the Anaheim Ballet and Anaheim Packing House.

Anaheim has some nice areas around Disneyland but other than in that area, there are some very unsafe, shady areas that are dangerous. Lingering around at night is super dangerous considering that there are gangs in these shady areas of Anaheim. The educational system here in Anaheim is great! The teachers truly do their best to get their students down the right path and help them embrace their passions. Anaheim is a very diverse city, people of different ethnicities, different jobs, and different lifestyles get along and work together.
I think Anaheim pretty much has it all. Besides all the freeways you could ever need, there are tons of places to eat! It's a quick jaunt to the beach, and isn't massively far to get to the mountains. Anaheim is the home of Disneyland, as well as the Los Angeles Angels! There's always something fun to do here. Whether you enjoy some really good Mexican food, or In-N-Out Burger, or some delightful sushi, Anaheim truly has everything.
