Anaheim is famous for its unparalleled offering of entertainment. More than 5 theme parks, the Honda Center, the Convention Center… it’s impossible to be bored in this buzzing city! But if you want to get away from the crowds for a day, try Anaheim’s coolest off-the-beaten-path spots.

Anaheim Brewery

Friendly service for friendly beer. There is nothing pretentious at Anaheim Brewery, one of the city’s many craft brew stars located in the popular Anaheim Packing District. Take a seat in the Tasting Room or Beer Garden to relax with a classic, locally-made brew and learn the fascinating history of this pre-prohibition brewery.

FlightDeck Flight Simulation Center

Are you a Goose, Maverick, or Iceman? Climb into the cockpit of a fighter jet or Boeing 737 to find out for yourself! Take a class to learn and then receive in-air instruction to feel the aerial maneuvers during an authentic military flight simulation.

Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament

Travel back in time for the night at this unforgettable dinner-and-a-show experience. As a guest, you’ll enjoy a feast inspired by Medieval cuisine and be placed on the side of a particular knight. While eating, cheer on your knight in a live jousting and combat tournament.

Anaheim Ice

Southern California might get 300 days of sunshine each year, but at Anaheim Ice, cold is cool. This ice skating rink is where the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks practice. But don’t be intimidated - lace up for open sessions to the public or sign up for a lesson.

Angel Stadium

"Take me out to the ballgame, take me out with the crowd...!" See America's favourite pastime live as you watch MLB home team Los Angeles Angels play ball. Don't forget to participate in baseball game rituals: the 7th inning stretch and eating a ball park hot dog.
