      Thank you, Tony, good job. Since Anaheim is the only city I have visited in California, I was interested to see what you recommended as sites to see. The one thing I didn't see on your list that I found fascinating is the Crystal Cathedral. It was worth just driving through the grounds. The immensity of the Cathedral was awesome.

      I would go to Disneyland that's all. And I think if you went with kids, with the intention of visiting Disney, no other sights would be seen! Except for maybe the pool when they wanted to have a swim! I haven't been to Disney for 16 years so would love to go back and see how vastly it's changed!

      You've brought back memories... I lived in Orange County when I was a pre-teen. (Later, I lived in Redondo) Anyway, my favorite memories are of Disneyland. Ooooh, it's a small world after all. (Just singing the song to one of the most popular rides in my head) I enjoyed your hub very much. You've pointed out all the best things about Anaheim, some of which I've never visited.

      A lovely hub. No doubt, it will give the tourist lots to think about.

      Love it, great hub, lots of info. Haven't been to Anaheim in what seems like an eternity. Who can resist Disneyland, my kids loved it. Would like to do it again now that the kids are all grown and gone. Don't know if the old ticker can take the rollercoasters anymore though.
