Anaheim is the largest and oldest city in Orange County. The city’s proud history started in 1857 and recently celebrated its 150-Year Anniversary. A colony of German farmers migrated to the area and named the city Anaheim after the Santa “Ana” River and “heim” meaning home in Germany. The German farmers loved their “home by the river.”
High-end entertainment is Anaheim’s current history. Visitors from around the world travel to enjoy this unique tourist destination. Anaheim offers extensive family entertainment including Disneyland, Disney’s California Adventure, Angel’s baseball, Mighty Ducks hockey, Disney Ice and the Anaheim Garden Walk.
The city offers many options for housing, as Anaheim has diverse neighborhoods and wide range pricing throughout the city. Affordable-housing apartment units are available citywide. The Promenade in Downtown offers lofts, million dollar estates of Peralta and Anaheim Hills to family neighborhoods illustrate many of the Anaheim homes.
The community-oriented farmers’ market is one of the best in the county. Located in Downtown, venders sell fresh produce, baked goods, handmade crafts, and original art every Thursday afternoon.
