Buena Park is a great small town. It has Knott's Berry Farm which is a wonderful and exciting theme park. They have Snoopy and the Peanuts Characters along with other entertainment shows; including a wild west stunt show. You can pan for gold and travel on an old fashioned steam train. Along with many other rides.
