What's Going on in Anaheim? Nothing Short of Renaissance

Anaheim California Renaissance Is Dream Realized for Tourism Professionals


Anaheim, CA--If you cruise into Anaheim by car, exiting one of the freeways such as Interstate Highway 5, many of the sights you've seen years past continue to look familiar. It's difficult to change the look and feel of freeways, much less complete neighborhoods, isn't it? Well...maybe not.


Anaheim is an example of a city that's seen remarkable change. Increasingly pushing toward trends that seek to create neighborhood centers where people can shop, live and work, Anaheim has moved forward in recent years with projects to create that type of environment. Nowhere is the change more evident than the epicenter of redevelopment, Disneyland!


The Magic Kingdom, which celebrated 50 years of theme park memories some time ago, hasn't had the luxury of a complete re-make. Socked in the center of older neighborhoods with housing, strip malls, and traffic, what's happening in this born-again theme park is nothing short of a miracle, at least in our eyes. Remembering horrific traffic that brought Anaheim to its knees several decades ago when the convention became too large to handle, traffic can still be an issue during the larger events, but all in all, the master plan for the city and Disney's theme park expansions seems to be working rather well.


Downtown Disney with anchor music venues such of House of Blues has helped create additional attractions for Disneyland visitors and local residents, and a new shopping mall will also go far to create additional dining and shops for tourists and locals to get out and explore at Anaheim's latest Garden Walk. One of our favorite chain restaurants, Anaheim - Garden Walk, 321 W. Katella Ave., Anaheim, CA 92802. Call: (714) 507-2021, is part of the mix of dining experiences long overdue in the Harbor Boulevard region that surrounds Disneyland.


Of course a Renaissance is not complete without new or updated hotels, as well. A castle-themed hotel, the Sheraton Anaheim Hotel is one of the nice options. Renovated Anaheim hotels include Carousel Inn and Suites, Holiday Inn Express and Ramada Plaza Hotel Disneyland Area. Renovations are integral to Renaissance efforts, and you'll not find a city experiencing more renovations on a constant basis than Anaheim.
