Overview

Introduction to Anaheim, California

Incorporated as a city for the first time in 1870, Anaheim is the tenth largest city in California. It is part of the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana metropolitan area which is home to over 12 million people. Anaheim is located on the Santa Ana River in southern California, 36 miles southeast of Los Angeles, and 15 miles east of the Pacific Ocean.

Anaheim began in 1857 when German farmers arrived. Disneyland opened here in 1955. The Anaheim Convention Center, the largest on the west coast, is also located here. In order to serve these facilities, the hospitality business has become a large part of the economy. Those interested in pursing a career in Anaheim's booming tourism industry should explore how to become a travel agent or visit our online college directory for a list of schools that offer degrees in hospitality management.

Anaheim operates it's own utilities, affording residents and businesses lower rates than other local municipalities.

August average daily high and low temperatures are 85.6 and 63.4 degrees Fahrenheit. January average daily highs and lows are 68.6 and 45.2 degrees Fahrenheit. Annual precipitation is about 11 inches.
