On the last day of the cheer competition, we relaxed by the pool at the hotel, visited The Bowery Museum in Santa Ana, and then enjoyed dinner at McCormick & Schmick’s at the Anaheim Garden Walk. This ultra cute shopping and dining area is roughly one block from the Anaheim Convention Center, and Disneyland. It was an easy walk from the hotel, and a hidden gem we hadn’t been to before.
The Anaheim Garden Walk had a ton of local shops-not chains-and it also included a large number of restaurants. After dinner, we walked around and discovered a beautiful LED light show throughout Anaheim Garden Walk. It was a light garden which was a special display for lunar new year. We felt so lucky to have stumbled upon it!
The lights were beautiful and glowed in the night sky. My camera does not do all the vibrant colors justice. It was magical and pretty. We kept stopping along the way to snap pictures in front of the various displays. Many of the light fixtures were set-up for Instagram moments, so there were plenty of people trying to get the right shot for Instagram. We were not as careful as other people, as we got giddy over each fixture, and tried to quickly snap photos so we could go on the next installation.
We also enjoyed the locally owned shops and my daughter found a few beauty items at one of them. If you visit Disneyland, or are in the Anaheim area, I highly recommend checking out the Anaheim Garden Walk. It is a really nice shopping and dining area! It looks like the lunar new year display will be up until the end of February. So if you can get there before the end of the month-do it!
