Welcome to Anaheim

 
Home to the happiest place on Earth
 
By building Disneyland in 1955, Walt Disney is often credited with placing Anaheim on the map. However, more than a century ago, a group of German immigrants planted wine vines to commemorate the city's earliest claim to fame. The Anaheim colony was founded in 1857 and included 1,165 acres. The settlement was given the name Anaheim by the settlers, with "anna" alluding to the Santa Ana River and "heim" meaning "home" in German. Later on, the name was changed to Anaheim.

The city now covers 46 square miles and has a population of approximately 311,000 people, making it Orange County's largest and most populous city. It's also the wealthiest, having over $1 billion in assets in the city. Despite the abundance of apartments in these cities, Anaheim still has a number of lovely houses nestled amid the tourist attractions. These magnificent homes are available in a variety of designs, each of which perfectly captures the homeowner's own lifestyle.
