Buena Park boasts all kinds of fun in a vacation destination perfect for every age. From theme parks and attractions to interactive dinner theater and shopping, everyone can have fun in this small town. With close proximity to both Disneyland and Orange County Beaches, its even perfect for a day trip or weekend getaway.

America’s first theme park, Knott’s Berry Farm features roller coasters, family and children’s rides, entertainment and water and thrill rides. Visit Soak City Water Park after hitting all the attractions and make room for traveling and ongoing shows. The park offers snacks and shopping as well.

For local entertainment, try Medieval Times or Pirates Dinner Adventure for food and a family-friendly show. Also choose from parks, golf course, shopping and art in the area. Knott’s Independence Hall and the Buena Park Historical Society provide history while Buena Park Downtown and Knott’s Marketplace offer shopping and dining.

The community puts on a number of events throughout the year including parades, concerts and classes at the community center. Attend the free summer concert series, watch a civic theatre performance, or browse Saturday farmers markets at the downtown mall. See what else locals and tourists love about Buena Park in its reviews.

I have been involved with BP since 2006, BP has the best of all things needed to have fun, it is also surrounded by larger cities which gives it a lead that no other town has. To it's east we have Anaheim (The happiest place on earth is here), To it's east the County of Los Angeles (did some one say Hollywood???) . I invite to go to Google maps and see its great location and great images!
Here is a small list of to do things
Knott's Berry Farm
Movieland Wax Museum
Buena Park Downtown
Buena Park Golf Center, The
Harbors Beaches & Parks Dept
Cedar Fair
Japanese Village and Deer Park
Ralph B. Clark Interpretive Center
Whitaker-Jaynes House
Buena Park Historical Society
Do I have to say more???

Anyone who has been to Buena Park knows that this is the MOST FUN TOWN! It is known for its unique themed dinner shows like Pirates Dinner Adventure and Medieval Times. Knott's Berry Farm has the most exciting rides! It is a fun time waiting to happen!

I love Buena Park. I've been to several theme parks, but there is something special about Knott's. The rest of the town is nice too. There is plenty to do without leaving city limits. What I like about BP is it seems very real. Not as swanky as south county, but not dumpy either. Pirates and Medival Times rocks, I just wish the Wax Museum, Coke Store, and Ripley's were still there.
