Anaheim, California

Having a rental car in Anaheim is the best way to get around and online are excellent national travel deals to Anaheim.

Getting there

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is one of the nationеs busiest with connections all over the world. Alternatively, if Anaheim is your primary destination, you can fly directly to Orange Countyеs largest airport, John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana. Amtrak has passenger trains that run north south through Californiaеs major metropolitan areas as well as eastward from San Francisco connecting to the inland states. Greyhound bus services connect all of the major cities in California to destinations beyond the state.

By car rental to Anaheim, it is just 30 miles south of Los Angeles (about a 45-minute drive). It can thus be either an additional stop in California or a destination in itself. Interstate I-5 is the major north-south highway through the state. From I-5 there are several off-ramps leading to Anaheim and its major attractions.
