In a city like Anaheim, California, with major sports stadiums and world-famous amusement parks that attract visitors from across the globe, it’s easy for the smaller local attractions to fly under the radar. However, experiencing the local activities can be just as—if not more—entertaining. 

If you will be spending time in Anaheim, California, it’s worth discovering the lesser-known gems that Anaheim has to offer. One of our favorite attractions in Anaheim is Chance Theater.
