The Anaheim Lifestyle: A Great Place to Live, Work, and Play
Anaheim enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with an average temperature of 70 degrees and only 9.8 inches of rain per year. It definitely does not snow in Anaheim, but if you’re itching to strap on the skis, there are a variety of mountain resorts available within a short driving distance. If your tastes run more to surf and sand, you’re in luck, because Anaheim is located only 13 miles from the Pacific Coastline. With the warm, dry heat and minimal humidity during our summers, those beaches will sure come in handy!
Our climate is conducive to a wide variety of outdoor activities. In fact, there is even a twenty-mile bike trail leading along the Santa Ana River right to the beach! In addition, there are several challenging and beautiful golf courses, two of which are owned by the city, a small stocked lake for fishermen, numerous public parks and recreational facilities, tennis clubs, and horse trails.
Anaheim is located 28 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles, and 90 miles north of San Diego, so that doing business in those areas is a simple matter of a short drive. Our city is located in Orange County, one of the nation’s most dynamic and technologically forward areas. Anaheim is well connected to the rest of the world by Orange County’s John Wayne Airport and numerous other airports in the region. Anaheim is also serviced by Amtrak for coast-to-coast travel needs as well as by Metrolink for commuting between Anaheim and other outlying areas.
Anaheim has housing options for all income levels. Housing assistance programs are also available to assist families in purchasing their first home. For more information about these down-payment assistance programs, click here or click on "Housing Assistance" in the menu to your left.
Anaheim has picturesque and historic downtown neighborhoods. In addition, there is executive living in East Anaheim and great family enclaves in West Anaheim.
Anaheim's crown jewel for business is the Anaheim Convention Center. With more than 1.6 million square feet, it is the West Coast's largest convention center.
If you’re looking for fun, you need look no further than Anaheim. We're best known as the home of Disneyland and now Disney’s California Adventure that includes the Grand Californian, a 4-Star hotel. Anaheim is also home to Downtown Disney offering shopping, nightlife, and restaurants for visitors and locals.
Anaheim is also home to the Anaheim Angels and the Anaheim Ducks of Anaheim, who play at Edison International Field and the Honda Center, respectively. Both of these facilities also regularly feature other entertainment such as concerts, circus performances, and family shows.
Anaheim is truly a world-class destination to live, work, and play!
