Both baseball aficionados and casual fans agree: If you're in Anaheim, you should make a point to catch a game at this historic, 45,050-seat venue. Home to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim since 1966, Angel Stadium (or The Big A) is baseball's fourth-oldest active Major League Baseball stadium, behind Fenway Park, Wrigley Field and Dodger Stadium. Single game ticket prices start at $8 and vary depending on the day, time and opponent. Parking at the stadium costs $10 per car (cash only).

According to recent visitors, the park is clean, the staff is friendly and the parking is easy. If you're looking for an affordable family activity (relative to Disneyland), you should try to attend a game here, according to past travelers.

If you're not in town to catch a game, consider tagging along on a ballpark tour. Tours, which last about 75 minutes, include time on the field, a visit to the Angels dugout, a walk through the visitors clubhouse, the press conference room and several other suites and rooms at the stadium. Tours are given at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays when the team is on the road. Tickets cost $8 per adult and $6 for children 14 and younger. The stadium is located about 5 miles south of downtown Anaheim. For more information, visit the ballpark website.

#1 Disneyland

Many travelers say this original Disney resort lives up to its motto as "The Happiest Place on Earth." You'll find three unique areas inside Disneyland: Disneyland Park, Disney's California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney district.The main park is still the favorite among reviewers and frequent guests, as it harbors several differently themed areas like Tomorrowland, Frontierland and Mickey's Toontown. At California Adventure, you'll find Golden State-themed lands like Paradise Pier, which is modeled after California boardwalks similar to the one in Santa Monica, California. And after its recent enhancement, visitors can also explore the worlds of "The Little Mermaid" and "Cars." For a tasty meal and some entertainment, head to Downtown Disney.

Though recent visitors gushed about this timeless experience, they also warned that taking your family here will cost a small fortune. Tickets range in price based on the time of year, package deals and more. One-day tickets for kids and adults ages 10 and older start at $95 while single-day admission for youngsters ages 3 to 9 starts at $89.  You save slightly by purchasing multiday tickets, but you'll still fork over a hefty sum for two-day adult admission, which costs $195. Prices also vary by season; single-day adult admission can cost as much as $119. Keep in mind single-day tickets only grant you entrance to one park; if you'd like access to both Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure, you'll need to purchase a Park Hopper Ticket, which can nearly double your admission price. Other factors to consider: dining (no outside food or beverage is allowed in the park) and FASTPASS service, which allows you to virtually save your place in line instead of having to physically wait for each attraction. If these prices have you second-guessing a trip to Anaheim, consider visiting some of the area's more affordable theme parks, such as Knott's Berry Farm and Adventure City. Though these parks lack the flash and beloved Disney characters you and your children grew up with, they can cut costs significantly.
