Things to do + places to see
in the OC
When the 71st Annual Key Club International Convention rocks Anaheim, California,
next summer (July 2–6, 2014), Key Clubbers from around the world will meet up in the famous
“OC”—Orange County. In this part of southern California, there’s every type of entertainment,
shopping and dining option your heart desires—and then some. So save up
some mad cash and be prepared to make a mad dash. Don’t miss these SoCal sights.
Hit the Hilton Anaheim food court for convenient lunch or
dinner options from Baja Fresh
Express, Just Grillin’, Sbarro and
Submarina. Vegetarian? Check
out the veg-friendly options on
Anaheim’s Center Street, including
the Gypsy Den’s eclectic
coffeehouse and Healthy Junk,
which offers sandwiches, salads,
juices and vegan selections.
If you’re more of a carnivore,
Umami Burger remains a wildly
popular West Coast eatery. Its
gourmet burgers are worth the
money—even if one will set you
back about US$12.
Disneyland rules in the OC with
attractions such as the Downtown Disney District, Disneyland Resort and Disneyland California Adventure Park.
The Downtown Disney
District, which is less than a mile
from the Anaheim Convention Center, is the hot spot for dining
of all sorts, along with entertainment
and shopping options.
