Anaheim’s theme parks are places to play with your favorite movie and comic book characters. Let your imagination run wild!
The highlight for most trips will be Disneyland® Park, the most iconic of all theme parks. It’s always evolving but never strays from Walt Disney’s vision of bringing magic to life. Disney California Adventure® Park is a collection of seven enchanting lands that tell the story of the Golden State.
Knott’s Berry Farm® embodies the American dream. The farm started as a humble roadside jam stand serving chicken dinners. It grew to become California’s very first theme park, and it remains an enduring icon a century after opening.
Universal Studios Hollywood™ is where the movies come to life. Explore real film sets or hit the thrilling rides and shows that bring your favorite films like The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™, Jurassic World™ The Ride, and Transformers™ The Ride-3D.

Arts & Culture
Anaheim has a show for everyone. Take in a performance at City National Grove of Anaheim, a 1,700-seat arena that hosts chart-topping artists. For something a little more intimate, the Anaheim Ballet, the city’s resident ballet company, and school offers regular performances. During the summer, don't miss the Festival of the Arts Pageant of the Masters in gorgeous Laguna Beach. The summer festival features showcases, workshops, and performances with 140 of Orange County’s greatest artists. The serene, 26-acre Fullerton Arboretum is Orange County’s largest botanical garden. It’s close to everything, but its garden paths seem a world away.
Museums & History
So much of Orange County’s cultural history is written every day, but stepping into a museum offers a glimpse into the story of the region, and America at large. Muzeo Museum and Cultural Center offers a rotating selection of thought-provoking exhibits from contemporary artists. For those who want to dive deep into history, the Orange County coast connects two unmissable relics of World War II. You can walk through the longest-serving battleship in United States naval history aboard the USS Midway Museum, or walk the deck of the storied Battleship IOWA.
