You can't really talk about Anaheim without mentioning Disneyland – but if that's all you talk about, you're missing out. Anaheim has grown into Orange County's largest city. It's a major convention destination and is home to major league baseball and hockey teams. Especially in the last decade, Anaheim has developed some surprising pockets of cool that have nothing to do with the Mouse House.
So if you're seeking all Disney all the time, by all means, have at it. For everyone else, Anaheim – and the rest of northern Orange County – could provide a welcome break.
