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.

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.
The city of Anaheim is filled with many diverse residents. I love the active community and how the majority of the city is filled with minorities causing the residents to have a sense of unity and togetherness while having one another's backs. On another hand, Anaheim has a negative connotation to it because people living in more upper middle class cities like Cypress have misconceptions about Anaheim being an unsafe city. No city is ever completely safe if you think about it. There is always a danger in the world, driving itself is dangerous as well. I like Anaheim, once again, for being diverse in different ways.
