Focus On: Anaheim
Other amenities of the Anaheim Resort include Anaheim Garden Walk, Orange County’s newest
oasis of outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment.
Just down the street is a bustling district of unique eateries, retail shops, the City National Grove of
Anaheim (a concert entertainment center) and sports venues where you can catch MLB’s Angels at
the Angel Stadium of Anaheim or NHL’s Anaheim Ducks at the Honda Center, which also doubles
as a concert and event venue.
Anaheim is the oldest incorporated city in Orange County where historic and futuristic venues live
side by side. Located just a block from the Honda Center, is the Phoenix Club, a cultural center
celebrating the Germanic roots of Anaheim. German grape farmers and wine makers founded
Anaheim in 1857 and gave the city its name. “Ana” is included for the Santa Ana River that runs
adjacent to the city and “Heim” means home in German.
Recently opened in 2011 was Founders’ Park, a carriage house that serves as a museum for historic
artifacts, and includes a full-sized windmill, historically inspired gardens, a water pump, a sun dial,
walkways and trails with interpretive panels depicting the area’s history.
Downtown Anaheim is another burgeoning neighborhood building on roots of old. This quaint
environment is home to the MUZEO, an interactive museum of ever-changing traveling exhibitions
selected for their cultural, educational, and pop culture merits.
Whether you are looking for a hug from Mickey Mouse, an autographed baseball or a dab of
European charm, you’ll get all that and more in Anaheim.
