LA Angels Baseball

July 22nd, 2014

LA Angels BaseballThe Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have become a favorite baseball team among baseball goers along the West coast. Having clinched eight division titles (1979, 1982, 1986, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, and 2009) most of which have been in the past few years they have slowly proven their position is deserved at second place in the American League West. With only one World Series to their name, which was earned in 2002, they continue to fight each night for a spot in the playoffs.

The organization became part of Major League Baseball in 1961 thanks to Gene Autry. Last year was the eleventh straight year that the franchise drew more than three million attendees, a feat second only to the New York Yankees, showing the loyalty of their fans.

While visiting Anaheim, treat yourself to an enjoyable game at Angels Stadium of Anaheim. Have a foot long hot dog and a beer while you relax under the lights of the stadium.

The Monkey Zoo

July 3rd, 2014

Santa Ana ZooMickey Mouse is popular here in Anaheim but why not check out some of our other animals while in town? Smaller than the LA zoo, the Santa Ana Zoo takes up approximately 20 acres and packs a punch with its many exhibits and keeps you from fighting the ever congested traffic AND…. Parking is FREE!

Take a walk through the Rainforest Exhibit and explore the White Faced Saki Monkeys or the Green Iguana. The Amazon’s Edge replicates the Brazilian rainforests and has a water moat, a wooden deck for viewing the animals and exotic animals such as the black necked swans. The Crean Family Farm is not what you would normally find in a zoo. This exhibit focuses on rare breeds of farm animals and is complete with a two-two story red barn.

Be sure to check out the parrot show while you visit, very interesting and entertaining for the kids. Also, enjoy the rare Giant Anteater. It’s pretty big! Hop on the train and get the lay of the land before you head out on foot.

The Zoo is open daily except for Christmas, New Years and Thanksgiving. During the summer, weekend hours are extended to 6 pm to provide more viewing time for summer visitors. Check out more information regarding events on their website.

Bringing Back the Simpler Times

April 17th, 2014

Roller SkateTimes used to be simpler. No cell phones, iPads or internet dating. A date was simply a movie, bowling, roller skating and a coke float. We no longer live during that day and time but you can still enjoy the simplicity right here in Anaheim.

There is nothing that says Ole School than coke float or milkshake. We have just the place to grab a walk down memory lane. Brianna’s Ice Cream is just the place. With some of the creamiest and thickest milkshakes around, you won’t be disappointed.

Grab your socks and head over to Holiday Skate Center. Forget the in-line skates and go for the original quad roller skates. If you used to be a pro, or you have never skated before in your life, this is sure to be a great time. Make sure someone has a camera ready!

We don’t want any broken bones, so if you are not the most sure footed take a detour to AMF Carter Lanes, Lucky Strike Lanes or Concourse Bowing Center. Complete with food, drinks, games (pool, arcades, etc.) and cosmic bowling, you won’t miss out on any of the fun.

Now that you have worked up an appetite, grab a slice of pizza at The Pizza Press or Pizza Boy. Rated by locals as the best pizza spots in the area, a few slices and you should be satisfied.

Just because you don’t live in the olden days doesn’t mean you can have the same fun!

 

Magical Location

The “Happiest Place on Earth” is right across the street making us the perfect hotel choice for guests visiting Disneyland®.
