Things to Do in Anaheim & Buena Park

A trip to Disneyland (aka the Happiest Place on Earth) in Southern California is every child’s dream, but the fun doesn’t end once you leave Disneyland Resort and Disney’s California Adventure Park. There are plenty of other kid-friendly attractions less than 15 minutes away in and near the neighboring towns of Anaheim and Buena Park, and securing tickets in advance—or combining admission to Disneyland with a nearby park—reduces the stress of long ticket lines. At Knott’s Berry Farm, kids can ride rollercoasters and meet Snoopy and the Peanuts crew. Next door, Knott’s Soak City has waterslides and a wave lagoon. Finish your day at Medieval Times Buena Park with an evening of feasting and jousting. Hollywood is just 32 miles (52 kilometers) northwest, and families can experience the magic of Tinseltown during studio tours of Universal Studios Hollywood and Warner Bros. Hollywood Studio. Spot celebrities in Beverly Hills on a bus tour of Rodeo Drive, take a horseback ride up to the famous Hollywood sign, or discover Los Angeles on a sightseeing tour of the city. Or take a beach break on the sunny California coast. Between Santa Monica and San Diego, you can kick back at Huntington Beach, Laguna Beach, or Newport Beach in Orange County. From Newport Beach, take a whale-watching or deep-sea fishing cruise, or catch the ferry for tours of Catalina Island. If you are visiting during Memorial Day weekend, don’t miss the famous Garden Grove Strawberry Festival.
