Approximately 10 miles east of downtown Anaheim in the mouth of Santa Ana Canyon, Yorba Regional Park is an oasis of green in a city heavily blanketed in concrete. Among its four lakes and connecting streams, biking and jogging paths, and equestrian trails, there are more than 400 picnic tables, along with barbecue grills and restrooms, making it the ideal place to take a family tuckered out by all the crowds at Disneyland. There's also a bicycle rental shop at the park (Wheel Fun Rentals), which rents out a variety of bikes, kayaks and pedal boats. Consider renting a bike if you want to ride the 20-mile-long Santa Ana River Trail, which eventually leads to the Pacific Ocean.

Recent visitors loved their time at Yorba Regional Park and strongly recommended travelers make time to stop by. Reviewers described the park as a city oasis and say it offers a wonderful place to relax.

From fall through winter, the park is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.; it stays open until 9 p.m. in the spring and summer. You don't have to pay to enter the park, but you will have to pay to park. It costs $3 per vehicle Monday through Friday and $5 on Saturday and Sunday. For more information, visit the OC Parks website

#1 Disneyland Resort

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 Resort: Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney District. The main park is still the favorite among reviewers and frequent guests, as it harbors several themed areas like Tomorrowland, Frontierland, Mickey's Toontown and its latest attraction, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, which has brought a whole new level of excitement to the park. While not all the "Star Wars" rides are available (rollout continues until early 2020), the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run ride and the themed shops and eateries that are open have garnered high praise from visitors.

Meanwhile, 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, and exciting new attractions like the "Guardians of the Galaxy" ride in Hollywood Land. Visitors can also explore the worlds of "The Little Mermaid" and "Cars." For a tasty meal and some entertainment, head to Downtown Disney.
