City Love: Anaheim, Orange County

A while ago I blogged about moving to Orange County, Anaheim to be exact.  I wrote about being new to the area and wanting to explore the city and county. After almost 8 months of living here, there are definitely a few favorite things I have come to enjoy.   Well the most obvious is Disneyland, not only am I close enough to really get my moneys worth from the annual pass.  I am also close enough to Disneyland and get a view of the nightly fireworks.  This can be a good and bad thing.  They are really loud and if your windows are open, it sounds like bombs going off. Unless its Fourth of July, then its super awesome. I had a view of the fireworks from both Disneyland and Angel Stadium, best show ever and didn't pay a dime!  There is plenty of places to explore in Anaheim from Downtown Disney, if you need your Disneyland fix with out actually going inside the park. We also have the Honda Center so I am never too far from a great concert.   The area where I am at is considered Downtown Anaheim.  We have a few indie shops and restaurants and recently a brand new cute park opened up. Its across the street from my building and its called Farmers Park.  I really like having the park so close and enjoy evening picnics on hot summer nights. We also have a ice skating rink in Downtown Anaheim, and I hear you can often see the Ducks Ice Hockey players practicing there. I have yet to spot any of them, cause I don't know a thing about ice hockey...LOL 

My favorite has been the weekly Farmers Market held every Thursday. Its literally right outside my door, and love going every week to discover new things. Since moving to Anaheim the Farmers Market has been a must every week. I spend my day there checking out the vendors and our course eating some yummy food. These are just a few of my favorite things about Anaheim, as I am still kinda new to the area and finding more new places to explore. Every day, week and month I am discovering more great things about this city and will be sharing more about The Big A! 

In the mean time take a look at this video I made from the Downtown Anaheim Farmers Market. Just a little glimpse at what I love about my city. 

What do you love about your city?
