Anaheim has fantastic local attractions and has easy freeway commutes to other neighborhood attractions and beaches. For a more flexible and convenient stay in Anaheim, we strongly recommend renting a vehicle for your California Travel rather than relying on shuttles, taxis or public transport. Shuttle Services do cost and can be frustrating when having to queue with the crowds to wait for a bus and then stopping at other hotels before arriving home. Vehicle hire is easy, affordable and allows you greater flexibility. Pop back to the hotel for an afternoon rest , dine in the less expensive non Disney areas or explore more of the wonderful attractions that the area has to offer. You should find driving on the Southern California freeways relatively easy, even if you are use to driving on the left hand side of the road. You can hire a vehicle from $ 22-55 per day at www.carrentalexpress.com. Our front desk associates are happy to provide you with easy to follow directions to all our Anaheim attractions.
