Anaheim is outside of the ordinary. Here you’ll move beyond the ballroom or the boardroom to curate an alfresco adventure. Anaheim offers an array of unique options for outdoor venues. Anaheim and Orange County are home to 42-miles of coastline, elevated dining and libations, and a mixture of refined offerings and recreation. Plus, with nearly 300 days per year of sunshine, the forecast calls for fun-filled events, networking opportunities, and receptions.

While Anaheim is a top convention destination, there are many unconventional venues to make an impact on visitors.
