Find the best car rental deals in Anaheim, California
For a long time, Anaheim has been dominated by one big, enchanting attraction: Disneyland. Yet the populous Orange County city is also a common destination for business conventions, while other attractions, too, compete for attention in the area. Knott’s Berry Farm, on the edge of the city, is another theme park promising hours of entertainment.
While you can’t drive in Disneyland, Orbitz can help you rent that essential car for navigating Anaheim and the surrounding area. The various neighborhoods of Orange County are linked by a busy network of roads, all leading toward the nearby metropolis of Los Angeles.
Anaheim is not only full of delights, but is also located near some of Southern California’s coolest neighborhoods. Here’s where to visit in your rental car.
There’s no point in trying to resist the allure of Disneyland. Two theme parks sit side-by-side. One is the classic Disneyland of your imagination, complete with fairy-tale castles and space-themed rollercoasters. Its neighbor is California Adventure, with vintage rides and an immersive section dedicated to the world of Cars. The whole place is thrilling, irrepressibly happy and – of course – magical.

The beach town of Newport is one of the coolest in Orange County. A vast beach, a pier from 1906, and a glamorous population make this the perfect place to relax by the ocean. Come here in summer for live music nights and for warm days spent surfing in the Pacific Ocean.
