Here are 3 reasons to plant yourself in Buena Park

Proximity to Top Attractions:

Only 5 minutes from Disney Land and a short drive to sandy beaches, many of Orange County’s top attractions can be found in Buena Park. These attractions include John’s Incredible Pizza, (a totally unique experience that combines a made-from-scratch all you can eat pizza buffet with rides, games and attractions all under one roof), Big Air Trampoline Park, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament, Pirate’s Dinner Adventure, Teatro Martini (an edgy, fun, interactive dinner show for adults that blends great dining with world class entertainment), Knott’s Berry Farm (the oldest and one of the largest theme parks in the United States), Knott’s Soak City Waterpark, and Ralph B. Clark Interpretive Center (filled with displays and fossils including a 9 million year old baleen whale skeleton, which is believed to be one of the only complete ice age whale fossils in existence). 

Immersive Entertainment: 

In addition to the attractions already mentioned, entertainment abounds in this little city. Rock and Brews is great for everyone from families to singles. The creation of Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of the band KISS, this trip through rock memorabilia offers quality American comfort food in a rock & roll themed environment. 

Just for the adults, The Cauldron Spirits and Brews is the perfect place for a night out with friends or a date. This spooooky speakeasy takes you back to the 17th century. A witch-themed bar where visitors are transported back in time to a French inspired pub adorned with antique furniture, a spell-binding cauldron and secrets hidden around every corner. Or head to Beach Boulevard club for a saloon-style evening of 1920’s style entertainment and the impromptu talents of dueling pianos. This is but a sample of the entertainment to be found in one of the “most fun small towns in America”. 

Flavors of the World:

Yelp’s number one restaurant in the nation, Porto’s Bakery & Café, is located in Buena Park and this is where you must sample authentic sandwiches, famed cheese rolls and potato balls. The region is anchored by Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant, started by the Knott family back in 1934, people come from everywhere to taste her original recipes.

A great gastronomic feature is the multitude of food cultures you can sample here. The Source OC is perfect for this, filled with fantastic Korean, Taiwanese, Japanese and other flavor choices from around the world. There also many choices for a more relaxing sit-down meal, such as the Gaucho Grill Argentine Steakhouse, complete with an authentic fire grill and 8 delicious empanada choices, oh, and be sure to look into their “Tango Night”.  This is just a small sample of your choices, Bon Appétit!
