Restaurant

Quote:
On a hot summer day we needed a respite from the weather and a place to get a meal. Not wishing to again frequent the ever popular "chain restaurants" found in Orange County, we opted for something different. The Olde Ship is British owned and Operated and is quaint. It is located in downtown Fullerton on Harbor Blvd. just north of Chapman Ave. Off street parking is located behind the restaurant reached via side streets. There is a back door entrance also.

Disneyland Park

Attraction | "Disneyland"

What can't you say about Disneyland? It is one of the first theme parks in the U.S. and the start of the Disney empire. The entire economy of Anaheim, California and southern California now revolves around it. The park is set up with different theme areas, such as Tomorrowland and Fantasyland, each including multiple rides, attractions, and eateries to go along with the theme. Costumed characters roam the park bringing fairy tales and movies to life. Upon entering the parking lot, you can ride a tram to the front entrance and then walk down Main Street, U.S.A. lined with shops and characters and end in front of Sleeping Beauty' Castle. There's so much to see, you best plan several ...Read More
