Knott’s Berry Farm

Knott’s Berry Farm has 160 acres of exciting rides and fun attractions. But what we like most about this park is the food! The annual Boysenberry Festival, featuring dozens of unique boysenberry-inspired creations, is not to be missed. But it’s not just about rides, shows, and food. The kids will love Knott’s Soak City Waterpark, and you’ll enjoy shopping at the numerous shops in California Marketplace.

The Dr. Willella Howe-Waffle House and Medical Museum

How about treating the clan to deliciously quirky breakfast before a busy day at the parks? The Dr. Willella Howe-Waffle House and Medical Museum sits in the original mansion, which was built in 1889, and contains medical artifacts from that era. Besides serving up a fantastic breakfast, they also offer tours on the first Saturday of every other month (check the website). This is no doubt one of the most unique things to do in Anaheim, CA.
