Southern California really has it all—if an international visitor could only visit one region in the U.S., we would recommend this one. Of course, we can’t possibly include details on every attraction in this guide—a book with all that would require Dr. Wayne Szalinski’s shrinking machine! Instead, we present the most popular sites that we think will interest you:
Anaheim Area Attractions
Discovery Cube is full of hands-on exhibits—at last count, there are over 100 exhibits here! You can rock climb, discover the science of hockey, and experience what a 6.3 earthquake feels like. And let’s not forget the 4-D Movie Theater, virtual helicopter tour, and more. The Center is open 10:00 am–5:00 pm, daily except Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. General admission is $17.95/adults, $12.95/ kids ages 3–14 and $14.95 for seniors 62+. Children under 3 are free. Discovery Cube is located at 2500 N. Main St., Santa Ana, CA 92705—look for the 85-foot-tall Delta III rocket. Phone: 714-542-2823.
Christ Cathedral is a spectacular, world-renowned church. It’s the largest glass building in the world (more than 12,000 panes) and resembles a four-pointed star. It is open daily for free public tours, as long as no events are planned. Tours are offered Monday–Friday, 10:00 am–3:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm. Sunday masses are held at 9:30 am and 5:30 pm, with Saturday mass at 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. Formerly known as Crystal Cathedral, the church was founded in 1955 by Dr. Robert H. Schuller. The ministry filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and the campus was sold to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange in 2012. The building is currently closed for extensive renovations, but will reopen in late 2016 or early 2017. Address is 13280 Chapman Ave., Garden Grove, CA 92840. Phone: 714-620-7916.
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball team was once owned by the Walt Disney Company (which called it the “Anaheim Angels”), but is now owned by Arte Moreno. The Angels home is Angel Stadium of Anaheim, known as a power hitter’s park because the ball carries well. It boasts three full-service restaurants, a family-oriented seating section, an interactive area (Pepsi Perfect Game Pavilion), and the Outfield Extravaganza area. Modeled after the California coastline, the stadium has a 90-foot geyser, fireworks, and pyrotechnics to celebrate great plays. Home games run through the end of September. Seating, ticket information, and a pricing chart can be viewed at their web site. Angel Stadium is located at 2000 Gene Autry Way, Anaheim, CA 92806. Phone: 888-796-4256.
The Anaheim Ducks hockey team is one of Southern California’s most popular professional sports teams. They were known as the “Mighty Ducks” before the Walt Disney Company sold the team in 2005. The season runs October–April. Ticket prices range from $28 to over $200 and parking is $25. Home ice is at Honda Center, 2695 E. Katella Ave, Anaheim, CA 92806. Phone: 877-945-3946.
Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament is a popular dinner show. Go back in time and watch a “medieval” jousting tournament with amazing horsemanship and pageantry. All this while you enjoy a four-course meal inside a faux 11th-century castle. Prices are $61.95/adults, $36.95/kids ages 12 and under. 7662 Beach Blvd., Buena Park, CA 90622. Phone: 714-521-4740.
Pirates Dinner Adventure is a pirate-themed dinner show, similar to Medieval Times. Prices are $61.95/adults, $36.95/kids ages 12 and under. Tip: If you are retired military Pirates Dinner Adventure gives you half off the dinner and an upgrade to Captains Chair Monday through Thursday. 7600 Beach Blvd., Buena Park, CA 90620. Phone: 866-439-2469

RE: More Southern California Attractions
If you go into L.A., I highly recommend eating a mid-afternoon lunch at Philippe's, the restaurant where the French dip sandwich was invented. It is so classic and the food was scrumptious as well as a good value. We ate there on a Friday around 2:15pm and it was not crowded.
