What is it like to live in Anaheim, CA?
Depends on what part of Anaheim.
Generally speaking, the West End of Anaheim is not very nice. Anaheim Hills on the east side is the place to live, although it gets very hot in the summer.
The Colony District of Anaheim is charming, but go a mile in any direction and you will find yourself in questionable areas.
In terms of the area around Disneyland… nice place to visit, but I wouldn't live there. Lots of apartments, decaying neighborhoods, strip malls, liquor stores… you get the picture.
Update August, 2019: I was in the downtown area recently, and I have to say the area has greatly improved, with the opening of the Packing House, remodeling of the Central Library, development of modern townhouses and apartments, and new restaurants. It is ironic that the area is reverting back to what downtown Anaheim used to be, before it was demolished to put in strip malls.
