Anaheim, California: Magical Playland About a Half Hour from Huntington Beach
Less than an hour from Hollywood and Universal Studios, Anaheim is centrally located for those wanting to make the most of a Southern California getaway. Atop the list of things to do here is Disneyland. Walt Disney’s original park, it has a handful of nostalgic attractions that, though upgraded over the years, have been here since the park opened in 1955. You can ride the Mad Tea Party spinning teacups, hop on the King Arthur Carrousel, or sail in the Storybook Land Canal Boats (keep an eye out for the small pine near Geppetto’s home that Walt Disney personally planted).
Disneyland has plenty of modern rides too, including Cars Land, one of the newer additions to Disney California Adventure Park. If you’re in the mood for thrills, ascend the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror before dropping in a heart-pounding free fall, or climb aboard the roller coasters thundering around Paradise Pier with sweeping views of the park.
Trade fairy dust for white sand at Huntington Beach, where you'll find 3.5 miles of free-to-the-public beaches filled with surfing, pickup volleyball games, and countless stalls selling flip-flops and other wares.
