As part of the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area, Anaheim is the 10th most populous city in California and home to various theme parks, including Disneyland.
Anaheim was founded by German immigrants in 1857 as a colony. The settlers voted to name the area “Annaheim” with the “anna” relating to the Santa Ana River and “heim” which translates to home in German.
The town grew into what was then the wine capital of California during the late 1800s. Although viruses killed most of the grape vines, the city shifted focus into growing and selling oranges through the continental railroad network by the end of the 1800s. With the cultivating of produce, many immigrants came to the city and helped shaped the downtown community of Anaheim.
During the 1900s, Anaheim transitioned from a rural community to a tourist city when Disneyland opened on July 17, 1955.
Top Anaheim attractions include: Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park, Angel Stadium, Yorba Regional Park, Anaheim Packing District and Anaheim’s city center.
Anaheim is home to two professional sports teams, including the Los Angeles Angels (MLB) and Anaheim Ducks (NHL). Both teams have had recent success in the last 15 years as the Angels won the 2002 World Series and the Ducks won the 2007 Stanley Cup. In addition, the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Clippers have previously played their home games in Anaheim before moving to their current stadiums.
