Knott's Berry Farm
Knott's Berry Farm
Knott’s Berry Farm is billed as “America’s First Theme Park” and has been a California favorite since the 1940s. A nostalgic part of a classic Southern California family vacation that’s now packed with some of the most modern thrill rides to date, Knott’s is no longer just a berry farm in a sleepy little town. Knott’s Berry Farm is conveniently located just over 5 miles to the northwest of Disneyland Resort.
It all started with a roadside farm stand selling rhubarb, asparagus and, of course, berries. The business expanded to jams and jellies, biscuits, and homemade pies. Mrs. Knott served her first chicken dinner in 1934 for a whopping 65 cents! Soon, there were so many folks waiting for the southern-fried delicacy that Walter Knott constructed a Western ghost town of buildings relocated from real Old West towns for diners to wander through for entertainment. From these humble beginnings, it’s evolved into a 160-acre amusement park that caters to both thrill-seekers and folks in search of an old-fashioned good time. The park was family-run until 1997, when it was sold to Cedar Fair Amusements (the same company that owns Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio—a childhood favorite of Jennifer’s).
Knott’s Berry Farm is organized into six California-themed districts: California Marketplace, Ghost Town, Boardwalk, Fiesta Village, Camp Snoopy, and Indian Trails (see park map on page 159). Below are the districts, clockwise from the entrance, along with descriptions and headline attractions.
