Visit Anaheim, California for business or pleasure. The dream of feeling as carefree as a child becomes a reality in Anaheim, California, the destination for family fun that’s also a great place to do business. By Meredith Newlin
At the grand opening of his theme park in 1955, Walt Disney said, “Here, age relives fond memories of the past … and here, youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future.” Now with more than 85 attractions as well as live shows and parades, the Disneyland of the 21st century has surpassed even its founder’s vision. With attractions such as the adjacent Disney’s California Adventure Park and the shopping and dining in the Downtown Disney District, adults find themselves having as much fun as children.
Disneyland’s themed venues offer fun on all levels, whether it’s listening to the jazz sounds of a street band session at New Orleans Square, riding a roller coaster on Space Mountain or discovering mind-challenging ideas at Innoventions.
The locale for this world-class attraction is Anaheim, 30 miles from Los Angeles and 90 miles from San Diego. The city offers year-round sunny weather and countless places to enjoy it, from nearby beaches to golf links to museums to Knott’s Berry Farm, the American West theme park. The state-of-the-art Anaheim Convention Center is now the largest on the West Coast and a top destination for events and business meetings. Anaheim has it all, and a variety of Country Inns & Suites By Calrson accommodations await to make a visit to this diverse and diverting area even more enjoyable.
