Millions of people from around the globe descend on this charming city in Orange County with thing on their minds: Disney. Here you’ll find Disneyland, with its choice of eight themed areas, or “lands”, like Main Street USA and Adventureland, each bursting with new and classic rides and attractions, and its little sister, Disney California Adventure, equally packed with attractions. Even Downtown Disney keeps them coming, with its free admission and countless choices for entertainment, dining and shopping.

But Mickey doesn’t run this whole town - at least, not yet. Baseball fans can’t miss a Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim game at Angel Stadium, while thrill-seekers unsated by Disney can pull their share of G’s in the supersonic flight simulators at Flight Deck Air Combat Center. Nightlife mavens can dance the night away at Anaheim clubs like Chain Reaction, or even learn a new move or two with Nonosina Polynesian Music & Dance. And thanks to a few successful TV shows, the OC’s gorgeous beaches in Huntington and Laguna are again getting the attention they rightly deserve.
