This Orange County, California, hub has theme park fun — and so much more.

Anaheim is the California capital of pixie-dust-fueled fun. But while the many area theme parks are awesome, the city itself offers real-world merits with no admission fees. Lively Anaheim is saturated with craft breweries, a fabulous food hall, hip music venues and much more. You’ll also find some seriously magical resorts, including the JW Marriott, Anaheim Resort, which delights guests with augmented-reality art and one of the area’s highest rooftop restaurants.
