Colony Historic District

Young Professionals / Retirees

The Colony Historic District includes the Packing House District, a hot spot for young professionals to live and socialize. Plenty of breweries, restaurants, parks and shopping all within walking distance make it an easy choice if you’re just moving to Anaheim and want to live where you go out. The District also has plenty converted and new buildings with nice (albeit pricey) lofts/condos/apts for younger population as well as retirees looking to live in an active neighborhood.

Platinum Triangle


Platinum Triangle is a really interesting newer area of Anaheim. Designed to be a mix of new businesses and new housing, it has high-rise loft and cool townhouse living options. An emerging entrepreneurial center, it's an interesting option for singles and couples who want a more upscale and growth-oriented neighborhood than the Historic District.

In addition to the versatile housing you also get an active commercial district with excellent restaurants/bars and cafes so you can walk to go out at night without needing to go downtown or into LA when you aren't up for it.

The Colony Historic District


Anaheim doesn’t have a singular LGBTQ+ neighborhood but the entire city is considered LGBTQ+ friendly. People are mostly spread across the entire city with Anaheim Hills popular for those looking for a more luxurious lifestyle and The Colony Historic District for those who want a lovely home but prefer a walkable social scene via the local Packing District marketplace. The Packing District is a revitalized commercial and social district with tons of bars/restaurants/cafes so locals can live and play in the same neighborhood.

The Colony also has the lovely Pearson's Park, a scenic open green space with trails, a lagoon and even an outdoor amphitheater for year round performances.

Anaheim Hills


Anaheim Hills is a master-planned community that serves the wealthy of Anaheim. Filled with gated streets and surrounded by lush greenery, parks for kiddos and outdoor adventurers, beautiful views of the mountains, and the best public schools in the city. This is the spot for living large in the city. Northwest is another good option for families with plenty of greenery and parks for play. One of the great things about Northwest is that while it has the homes and blocks of a suburban neighborhood in the city, it also has a bounty of restaurants and shopping to make the living easier and a bit more energized than really moving out to the suburbs.
