Adventures Await in Buena Park, California

By: Erica I. Peña-Vest

I recently heard a wealthy person on television say they were going to sell their house because they lived next door to a very famous celebrity and couldn't stand the traffic of the paparazzi.  With that in mind, can you imagine what it would be like to live next door to Mickey Mouse, arguably the most recognized and well-known celebrity in the world?  The people and businesses of Buena Park, California know first hand what that's like and they revel in it.  Located a stone-throw away from Disneyland Park, Buena Park, California has become a favorite destination within itself among vacationers.  Home to Knott's Berry Farm, Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament and many more attractions within their 10 square miles, Buena Park has blossomed into a vacation destination in their own right.  Lined with family friendly hotels, traditional family friendly restaurants, attractions and dinner adventures, the main thoroughfare of Beach Blvd. is an entertainment hub for those that are looking for a day or night away from the Disney traffic. 

Knott's Berry Farm, which calls itself America's first theme park, is a great attraction for those looking for more of a thrill ride.  Home of Montezooma's Revenge, the Silver Bullet and Ghost Rider, as well as a dozen other thrill rides, Knott's Berry Farm is bound to be a favorite of those looking for excitement that can only found from high speeds, sharp turns and spins.  

Other Buena Park attractions include Pirate's Dinner Adventure and Ripley's “Believe It or Not” Museum.  Pirate's Dinner Adventure can't be missed by those pirate enthusiasts that are looking for a good meal and fun entertainment.  Guests are seated in a coliseum type theater around Captain Sebastian the Black's pirate ship, where you can enjoy a traditional pirate meal while watching the show.  Kids will enjoy the swash buckling and audience participation, though the show runs a little long for shorter attention spans.

Local Buena Park hotels including the Knott's Berry Farm Resort Hotel as well as many others offer a special discounted military rate.  The Hampton Inn and Suites at Buena Park has ‘family suites' that consist of two adjoining rooms which can't be beat for those of you traveling with children.

Buena Park is truly a family-friendly city with a small town feel.  Hospitality and service are of the utmost importance with a great emphasis placed on fun!  If your travel plans take you to Southern California anytime in the future, don't miss the adventures waiting for you in Buena Park, California.
