Going Off the Beaten Path in Anaheim, CA

8 December 2016

Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Ana Mountains between Los Angeles and San Diego, the two largest cities in Southern California, Anaheim very easily might have gotten lost in the shuffle. Instead, this city of more than 330,000 has become one of the world’s top vacation destinations. And now, it’s the home of Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Anaheim, CA.

Located just a half mile from the main gates of one of the world’s largest family resorts, and across the street from the Anaheim GardenWalk, the hotel is the ideal staging point for your Anaheim trip. Featuring our latest interiors, spa-inspired bathrooms, free Wi-Fi and an outdoor heated pool and whirlpool tub, it’s the perfect place to kick back and relax when you need a vacation from your vacation.

But if theme parks and thrill seeking aren’t your thing, what else is there to do in Anaheim? Plenty.

First, get your day started off right with our complimentary Be Our Guest Breakfast, featuring delicious entrees, Belgian waffles, build-your-own yogurt parfaits and more. From there, check out Anaheim’s historic downtown, where you can walk the promenade and explore trendy boutiques, daily events, festivals and delicious restaurants.

If you’re a sports fan, you can take in a ball game during the summer, or watch hockey’s best battle it out during the winter. Located nearby is the City National Grove of Anaheim, one of the city’s premiere venues, and host to concerts, theatre, shows and much more.

If you’re looking for a bit of excitement, Anaheim has a flight simulation center where you can “fly” a fighter jet and dogfight against your friends, a go-kart track, and two trampoline parks (here and here) — all located within 10 miles of your front door.

But if you’re looking for something a bit more relaxing, Anaheim can provide that as well. The Orange County Museum of Art is located in nearby Newport Beach, highlighting modern and contemporary art. The Santa Ana Mountains offer a number of day hikes that feature stunning views and vistas, lush forests that line deep canyons, and lovely waterfalls. And of course, the Pacific coast is less than 20 miles away, in case you just want to go lay on the beach and soak up the California sun.

Whether you’re headed off on a magical adventure or are in the mood for something a bit different, there’s something for everyone in Anaheim. Whatever your taste, we can’t wait to welcome you to the Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Anaheim, CA!
