Welcome to West Anaheim
Spanning the width of sun-soaked northern Orange County, Anaheim offers the true California dream. Once an expanse of orange groves, West Anaheim is a young, fresh city district that’s hip, eclectic, accessible, affordable, and, most of all, fun! Life in West Anaheim is a dream for sun-lovers who thrive in a vibrant city with an internationally diverse community. Anaheimers enjoy great food, a dynamic local entertainment scene, and a quick 30-minute drive to the glorious Orange County coast, home to some of the nation’s best surfing beaches. Local history is studded with the sparkle and glamor of Hollywood, and, due to its incredible nightlife, attractions, and entertainment, the city is one of America’s best-loved playgrounds. For a more relaxed day, play a round at the Dad Miller 18-hole golf course and kick back with friends at the club’s bar and grill.
With a wide range of public and private schools, innovative learning centers and programs that emphasize fun and individual creativity, public parks and recreation opportunities, and countless museums and attractions for kids, Anaheim is a paradise for families, and it offers excellent public transit. It’s also only 45 minutes to downtown LA by train, and 30 minutes by car, making it super easy to work or explore in the city of angels.
