About Anaheim

The vibrant, exciting city of Anaheim, California, hosts some of the top technology shows in the world, including CES, NAB and InfoComm. More than 1.5 million business travelers a year visit Anaheim, making Anaheim one of the top destinations for B2B and B2C conferences in the United States.

Attractions

Anaheim is known as a premier business and leisure destination. There are plenty of quirky, fun and adrenaline-pumping reasons to leave your hotel:

  • More than 650 million visitors agree: Disneyland is "The Happiest Place on Earth." Experience thrilling rides from Adventureland to Frontierland (maybe you'll get a peek at the soon-to-come Star Wars Land!), search for Hidden Mickeys and enjoy fireworks, parades, live music, shows and much more.

  • Discovery Cube—Imaginations run wild through more than 100 hands-on exhibits at Discovery Science Center. Take the Eco Challenge and become a green superhero, feel the power of a real rocket engine "launch" and try your best slap shot against the Anaheim Ducks' goalie!

  • Marconi Automotive Museum—View a $30 million car collection spanning exotic, historic and high-performance classic cars.

  • Island Express Helicopters—Soar above the wonders of Los Angeles and skip the traffic with an LA/Hollywood Heli Tour. Keep your camera ready as you get up close and personal with the Hollywood sign, the skyscrapers of downtown LA, Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach and so much more.

  • Flightdeck—Experience the thrill of aerial maneuvers at 600 knots and air-to-air combat in an authentic military flight simulator. Feel what it's like to take the controls of a commercial airliner in our Boeing 737 flight simulator.
