When people think of Anaheim, Disneyland is often one of the first attractions that comes to mind for family fun entertainment!

While normally families would be planning their spring break escape to the wonderful world of Disney, this year things look a little different.

While many people are currently unable to travel and escape to somewhere exciting, there are also those who (for many good reasons) would rather just stick close to home this spring.

Learning to appreciate and enjoy where you live and what you have could be the theme for the last year, and as we’re in the early months of 2021, it looks like this theme will continue!

Luckily, Anaheim is an exciting place to be and full of fun options for the whole family, even without Disneyland! Below we’ve listed three totally different but equally good opportunities to get your family to come together and enjoy themselves.

We’ve listed a few of our suggestions for getting the family out together for some fun!

Fly High and forget your troubles…

Anaheim’s SwingIt Trapeze teaches circus and acrobatic lessons by professional and experienced staff. Fly high through the air, hang on some aerial silks, or jump on the trampoline in a safe and friendly environment. Trapeze and trampoline classes are offered for all ages without any experience necessary.

Escape for fun and fantasy…

To fulfill that long overdue fun and fantasy we all could use right now, why not check out an escape room Anaheim?!

Escape Room Era knows how to do family fun right! With two different themed Escape Rooms and a horror themed third room opening soon, why not challenge the family to master the clues, solve the puddles, and achieve victory by ‘escaping the room’ together?

These times have been very trying for families often cooped up together with no clear picture of how the future will look. Bonding through an escape room game offers the perfect balance of high energy but with light physical activity, mixed with using that family brainpower to come up with strategies to win the game!

Stroll and eat along Center street…

Grab a taco, or a chimney cake, or even one of those deliciously cute Japanese style cakes, and take a leisurely stroll with the family around center street.

Anaheim’s revitalized food and shopping district in the center of Anaheim boasts unique food goods to satisfy all tastes, and outdoor dining options to take in all the colours and flavours of the atmosphere.

Why not make a family trip on a Thursday to the farmer’s market? Plan a wonderful family meal and do the shopping together! Meet vendors, taste fresh produce and enjoy the local performers. It’s the little things these days that can bring great pleasure! And what’s more pleasurable than delicious food shared together as a family?

Anaheim All-the-time!

If travel restrictions, physical distancing, and hand-sanitizing has got you down this spring, remember how truly great Anaheim can be, and escape for some family fun whenever you can!

Whether you’re soaring through the air to forget your woes, coming together as a family to win at an escape room challenge, or strolling along centre street, thinking how lucky you are to be alive and having fun! We hope these family-friendly suggestions for a bit of escape in Anaheim will serve as some potential alternatives for your family’s trip to Disney!
