One of the best things to do downtown is to explore the hip vendors and artisans that make Anaheim unique. Downtown Anaheim shopping is in the midst of one of the most vibrant city centers in the United States and near the city’s top attractions like the Disneyland® Resort.
Center Street Promenade
Center Street Promenade used to be the financial and cultural center of Anaheim at the dawn of the 20th century. Today, the street has enjoyed a revival, making it once again, the heart of Downtown where locals meet. It’s easy to see why too. This palm tree-lined corridor features displays of public art and hip local businesses including California-style cafes, artisan coffee shops, and stylish salons. At one end of the promenade, the commercial space leads to the must-see Muzeo Museum and Cultural Center. Along the way, pass by boutiques, that reflect the stylish health-conscious Southern California lifestyle.
If you find yourself at Center Street Promenade on a Thursday, you won’t want to miss the Downtown Anaheim Farmer's Market. From fresh veggies and fruits to hand-made jewelry and soaps, the vendors at this farmers market offer a unique shopping experience.
Anaheim Packing House
For a different take on an Anaheim shopping experience, check out the Packing House at the Anaheim Packing District. This industrial space, once an orange processing plant, has been reclaimed as a food hall and hosts some of Orange County’s emerging culinary artists serving cuisines that reflect a diverse population. The marketplace setting makes an appropriate lunch stop in the middle of a day spent strolling between shops.
