Wish upon a star for an Anaheim vacation rental

Don't know if you've heard of this little local theme park they have in Anaheim? Something about a mouse? Ask 99.9% of people why they've opted for an Anaheim vacation rental, and they'll wink and nod towards the glittering spires of Disneyland. But even if you're in town specifically for the princesses and loop-the-loopers, Anaheim's got plenty more to offer. Whether you're into video game events at the Anaheim Convention Center, Major League Baseball games at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim, or getting a whole lot of water up your nose at Knott's Soak City water park, Anaheim's got you covered.

Not every vacationer wants to be Buzz Lightyear

So an Anaheim vacation rental is the perfect opportunity to check some of California's most popular thrill rides off your list. But what if clinging on for dear life as you get blasted round a roller coaster isn't quite your bag? Never fear, old Walt thought of that. Downtown Disney is the resort's major shopping and entertainment area, with stores, shows, and restaurants spread across a number of themed areas. The other major thing that brings folk to Anaheim is the Anaheim Convention Center. It hosts a whole heap of annual events and festivals, many of them concerned with technology and gaming.

You'll be mad about the mouse with an Anaheim vacation

There are 2 theme parks at Disneyland—Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure—and they're both awesome. Disneyland Park is the better-known one, with 8 themed areas, including patriotic Frontierland and futuristic Tomorrowland. And if you still haven't got your fill of theme parks, take a ride just out of town to Knott's Berry Farm, where you'll find some thrill rides to rival Mickey's, plus a water park called Knott's Soak City. Sports fans, meanwhile, will want to try and catch a Major League Baseball game at the nearby Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

The weather in Anaheim doesn't take the Mickey

The weather in this part of California is pretty obliging. Think hot summers and mild winters, without too much rain at any time of year. Not that it matters anyway, since Mickey never takes a day off. Anaheim is a year-round destination, but the Disney Parks are at their busiest during the main summer and winter holidays. If you're flexible and looking to snag yourself some shorter lines and tastier rates, it might be worth booking your Anaheim vacation rental in early spring or late winter. Weekends are always busier than weekdays too.

Remember when all this was just orange groves?

Anaheim is in Orange County, which is bordered by the Santa Ana Mountains and the beaches of the Pacific Ocean coast, and is famous for a cult TV show called The O.C. about a delinquent kid living with some rich folks. When Walt Disney first rocked up here, Anaheim was a backwater with orange groves as far as the eye could see, but Walt spotted they were building a freeway. Fast-forward 60 years and Anaheim is set in one of the biggest urban areas in the county. Apparently old Walt had a nose for business. Who knew?
