Located in the heart of Orange County, Anaheim offers the perfect California vacation getaway. As the legendary home of Disneyland and several other popular Anaheim theme parks, this region of Orange Country seems to be made for both children and children at heart. But don't overlook the beautiful aspects of southern California that appeal to grown-ups as well. Make the most of your vacation by taking a tour of vineyard country and experiencing a seasonal wine tasting. Hike the trails of state and local Anaheim park areas. Visit the beach and spend an afternoon surfing, sailing, snorkeling, or just soaking up the golden sun. Play golf, relax in a spa, or see a live show at one of several performance venues in town. At the end of a long day of sun, sand, and roller coasters, retreat to your private luxury vacation rental and relax in style. Make dinner for your family and friends and watch the sun set over the Pacific Ocean from the deck of your villa or beach condo.
Here are a few additional suggestions as you plan your trip:

When you're ready for more laid back adventures, spend the day on an emerald green golf course or indulge in some head-to-toe pampering at a world class luxury spa. After the sun goes down, retreat to your vacation home or rental apartment and host dinner for your family and friends.
