Buena Park out of the shadow of the mouse!

Buena Park is of­ten known, on these shores any­way, as ‘the turnoff to get to Knott’s Berry Farm®’…and that’s about it. Well… wrong! There is plenty to see and do in this en­clave of Ana­heim and Or­ange County, as I re­cently dis­cov­ered.

Ava­ca­tion hot spot, the lively city of Buena Park is lo­cated just 10 min­utes from Dis­ney­land and 45 min­utes from Los Angeles. The city is not only known for its pre­mier lo­ca­tion but for its world fa­mous en­ter­tain­ment… in­clud­ing the na­tion’s first theme park, Knott’s Berry Farm®.

Don’t for­get to stop by the Cal­i­for­nia Wel­come Cen­ter (6601 Beach Boule­vard) to get your dis­counted at­trac­tions tick­ets, free maps and travel guides on things to do in Cal­i­for­nia.

Buena Park truly is a des­ti­na­tion where the whole fam­ily can be en­ter­tained. From din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences, to ex­hi­bi­tions, to theme parks and ev­ery­thing in be­tween. An ex­cit­ing new de­vel­op­ment called The Source, is well un­der con­struc­tion and when fin­ished will add a new vibe to Buena Park with its multi-faceted shop­ping, din­ing and en­ter­tain­ment ar­eas.

Make sure you take the kids (big and small) to the world’s most in­ter­ac­tive din­ner shows - Pirate’s Din­ner Ad­ven­ture and Me­dieval Times Din­ner & Tour­na­ment.

Look­ing for a lit­tle cul­ture? Don’t miss the new block­buster ex­hibits, Ti­tanic The Ex­pe­ri­ence and Bod­ies... The Ex­hi­bi­tion. Lo­cated in Ralph B. Clark Re­gional Park is the Los Coy­otes Paleontology Mu­seum, which fea­tures ice age fos­sils and lo­cal ge­ol­ogy ex­hibits.

Come and ex­pe­ri­ence for yourself why Buena Park draws mil­lions of vis­i­tors each year.
