Learn More About Anaheim

While Anaheim, California may be best known for iconic attractions like Disneyland Resort and Angels Stadium, the city offers much more. Established in 1857 by German settlers, its name means “Home by the Santa Ana River.”

As Orange County’s most populated city, Anaheim extends from Cypress in the west to the Riverside County border in the east. It’s surrounded by cities like Fullerton to the north and Orange to the south.

The city is divided into distinct neighborhoods, each with its unique flair. The Anaheim Resort area is the hub of tourism, featuring not just Disneyland but also the Honda Center and Anaheim Convention Center. Adjacent to it is the Platinum Triangle, a burgeoning urban area perfect for working professionals. Southwest Anaheim offers a more family-friendly environment but maintains an urban vibe.

Venturing northwest, you’ll find North Anaheim, characterized by its family-oriented neighborhoods and local amenities. In contrast, Anaheim Hills boasts opulent homes and is a favorite among the city’s affluent residents. Between these lies Anaheim Canyon, the second largest industrial park in the county.

For a touch of history, the Colony in downtown Anaheim showcases the city’s oldest homes in styles like Craftsman and Bungalow. It’s also home to the city’s first house, the Mother Colony House, and the Muzeo art and culture museum.

Amenities abound in Anaheim: 84 public schools, 8 libraries, 2 golf courses, and 51 parks that span over 600 acres. For those seeking cultural enrichment, the city has strong international ties with sister cities in Japan and Spain.

Easy access to Freeways 5, 57, and 91 connects Anaheim to all of Southern California, making it easy to understand why it stands as a preferred residential hub in Orange County.

This condensed yet comprehensive overview of Anaheim is perfect for anyone considering making this diverse and vibrant city their home.
