Extending Your Stay–Explore Anaheim While at ONS Congress®

February 23, 2022
Orange County ONS Chapter
Anaheim, CA


ONS Congress is quickly approaching! If you’re planning to join us for ONS’s signature conference, we encourage you to take some time before, in-between, and after sessions to explore Anaheim, California, this spring.    

For information on things to do and places to eat in Anaheim, please allow the Orange County chapter of ONS to serve as your concierge in curating great experiences in our lovely hometown!    

Disneyland and California Adventure (Admission to the park[s] required) 

Downtown Disney & Surrounds  


  • Best tacos in Orange County: Lola Gaspar in Santa Ana (Honorable mentions include any of the taco trucks you come across in Santa Ana.)  

  • Great Vietnamese food in Little Saigon: With the largest Vietnamese population outside of Vietnam, Orange County has amazing Vietnamese food like pho (noodle soup) or bahn mi (sandwiches) at Pho 79 or Brodard. Try iced Vietnamese coffee for a strong pick-me-up.  

  • Rooftop dining: For a posh night out overlooking Anaheim, reserve an outdoor table at the BluSky Restaurant & Bar at the Radisson Blu.  

  • Hilltop views of Orange County: For the best food and panoramic views, the fan favorite is the Summit House in Fullerton. Honorable mentions include Orange Hill Restaurant and Orange Mining Company.    


  • Soak in the beach and sun: Rent a bike and ride along the coast at the Huntington Beach Bike Trail in Surf City, then have an ocean view meal at Duke’s

  • Country line dancing in a fancy steakhouse at The Ranch Restaurant in Anaheim 

  • Karaoke and Korean BBQ: Indulge in a cook-it-yourself Korean BBQ experience at Cham Sut Gol, then rent a private karaoke room for your group to sing your hearts out at Ding Dong Dang

  • Luxury shopping at South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa. While there, have some great Taiwanese dim sum at Din Tai Fung.  

  • Hidden gems: Start with an enchanting dinner at a restaurant tucked away in a neighborhood at Benchmark, then cocktails at Orange County’s first distillery, Blinking Owl, hidden in an industrial area just down the street. 

  • See Snoopy and the Peanuts gang at Knott’s Berry Farm.
