Discover a land of amusements in Buena Park

Resting comfortably in the middle of the laid-back suburbs that sprawl out from bustling downtown LA, Buena Park is a comfortable community of shopping and golf, plus some of the country's most famous amusement parks to boot. Just 20 miles southwest of the City of Angels, you'll feel far from the stress of big city life. A Buena Park vacation rental is the perfect home base for exploring all the major attractions of Orange County and the greater Los Angeles area, including Knott's Berry Farm, the town's main event.

Things to do

Unleash your inner child in Southern California's playground

Whether you're young or just young at heart, you can't skip a visit to Buena Park's hometown amusement park, the famous Knott's Berry Farm (and don't forget its sister water park, Knott's Soak City). Haven't had your fill of theme parks? Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are just 10 minutes away. Taste the luxury cruise liner life on a tour of the RMS Queen Mary, docked in Long Beach. You'll find exhibits of local history at the Buena Park Historical Society. Gamers will want to hit up Howie's Game Shack, the largest interactive gaming center in North America.


Out there having fun in that warm California sun

There's no shortage of ways to fill up your free time at a Buena Park vacation rental. Right in town there's plenty of top-notch shopping and 27 holes of championship golf at Los Coyotes Country Club. Sports fans can catch some pro baseball and hockey at Angels Stadium and the Honda Center in Anaheim. Ralph B. Clark Regional Park offers everything from fishing and hiking, to picnicking and mountain biking. For some quality beach time, you can be on the coast in half an hour. There's even a casino in town if you're feeling lucky.


Where the winters are warm and the summers are warmer

Get ready for the good life, because at your Buena Park vacation rental, it will be warm and sunny all year long. Highs range from the low 70s in the coldest months of December to February, to the upper 80s in the hottest months of June through August. Overnight lows tend to be in the 50s to low 60s year round, so pack layers. You'll see little rain (maybe a few showers in the coldest months), but plenty of sunshine to go around. If tanning is your thing, you'll get one here.

Natural features

Stretching out between the mountains and the sea

California is known for its suburban sprawl, and Buena Park is in the heart of it all. Halfway between the sandy beaches of the Pacific Ocean to the south and the wooded mountains of Angeles National Forest to the north, the town is a quiet community of residential homes and public green spaces. Small but diverse, Ralph B. Clark Regional Park is home to plenty of wildlife such as rabbits, lizards, and over 130 species of birds, plus plenty of fish and turtles in the lakes. But be on the lookout for the coyotes that sometimes wander through.
