Many people think about Disney when they think about Anaheim. I have news for you. There are so many other things to do in Anaheim while you are visiting besides Disney. When planning a trip to Anaheim, Browning Dodge wants you to get the most out of the area, so I want to share a few other things besides Disney that you can do while you are there.
If you are a fan of baseball, you are going to want to catch a game at The Angel Stadium. This is the home to the Los Angeles Angels and you will not want to miss a game here. It is the fourth oldest stadium when it comes to baseball and there is a halo that lights at the top of the stadium whenever the Angels win a game. How cool is that?!
Sports fans will also not be disappointed if there are into hockey. You will instead want to visit Honda Center. This center is the home of the Anaheim Ducks. This is a great indoor arena that not only hosts hockey but also music shows. Another fun tidbit about this place is that it is where part of The Mighty Ducks was filmed.
There is not just Disney to enjoy if you are into theme parks either. You will definitely want to take a visit to Adventure City if thrills are more your speed then sports. The park covers 2 acres and has all sorts of rides to be able to please the whole family. If you are visiting Anaheim, but it’s not for Disney, this is a cheaper form of thrill ride entertainment and fun for the family.
If you are in Anaheim for Disney, then you will want to stay at the Disneyland Resort. The hotel has various themed areas including Fantasy, Adventure or Frontier Tower. There is also themed eatery that can make the stay there all that much more fun. There are multiple swimming pools with waterslides that kids and adults will love.
History buffs will enjoy seeing Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. This stage show has been around for more than fifty years. It was first started to be part of a show that would show off all of the previous presidents, but this one never came about until a later date. A tribute to Mr. Lincoln was instead what was built and became the focus. The show has changed a few times but now it focuses mostly on the Walt Disney story and moments in history that included Mr. Lincoln.
For those loving the outdoors, you will want to check out Oak Canyon Nature Center. Oak Canyon Nature Center is in the Anaheim Hills and covers an area of 58 acres. There is so much to see and it is the best way to get back in touch with nature and the great outdoors. A stream also runs straight through the park making it even more beautiful. The three adjoining canyons just add to the sheer beauty of it all. If you love to hike, there is a four-mile trail to enjoy and discover.
The kids are sure to have fun if you take them to Seascape Kids Fun. With three stories to the park, you will be sure to have a blast. There are enormous slides, lots of foam balls and many places for the kids to have fun and climb. You do not have to have a special occasion to enjoy your time here. You can just show up with the kids and have a blast.
So when you are in Anaheim next for a trip, there is so much more to do and explore than just Disney! Make sure you check out some of these recommendations or tell me if you have been here before. Other recommends are also welcome!
