I went in today to get some ideas for family coming to visit next month. They are loaded with resources, and D is very helpful. You can even pick up some souvenirs for the kids! Parking is located behind the building, make your turn on Tenth street. While there, try to visit the two historic homes in the same complex;... More

This is a nice place to stop for information. The people there are so friendly and helpful. You can also buy some items, like the Knott's Berry Farm jam, which is yummy.

Definitely a must-stop for those near and far to grab maps, brochures, and even purchase ticket packages for all of southern California's attractions. THEN, head next door to the little restaurant called the Tice House...best food in town.

If you're looking for free maps and brochures for Los Angeles and Orange County. This is the place. You'll find much more here. You'll also find discounted tickets to Knott's Berry Farm and Disneyland. Also there are a few great props at this location that are perfect photo opps. This building is historic and it looks even better when you... More

This is the only place I could find that had discount tickets for Disneyland for the one day ticket. They were so nice and helpful and had all sorts of coupons and brochures for attractions all over California.

If you are new to Southern California and need information on where to go and what to do this should be your first stop. This welcome center like others has information on local and area attractions. Tons of maps, coupons and tickets. Volunteer staff is well informed and very helpful.

The staff was pleasant and I even got a little freebie - luggage tag! Lots of maps and info at your fingertips - I recommend stopping in there before hitting the road in LA/OC area. I actually stopped in there in 2014 and still used the info I received from there in my 2015 and 2016 trips.
