Exercise your sense of adventure

From the early 19th century, the cry has always been “Head West Young Man.” In those days, the draw was more aimed at seeking one’s fortune. Today, the calling is of another sort… adventure.

Over the years, Southern California and Arizona have become vacationer’s paradises. Each has a different drawing card, but both are equally as inviting. With great outdoor action sports and world class theme parks and attractions, the region has something to offer to the wild at heart as well as the tranquility seeker.

Central to a Southern California vacation is Disneyland, located in Anaheim. Anaheim, founded by grape farmers and wine makers back in the middle 1800’s, is today, the host to millions of visitors each year.

As for where to stay, check out the newly renovated and conveniently located Ramada Maingate-At the Park Hotel in Anaheim. Sitting directly across from Disneyland, the accommodations include the largest kid-friendly pool in the area with a beach-style entry and a Kid’s Sprayground, as well as newly remodeled spas and Jacuzzis in the honeymoon suites.  Kids 17 and under stay free with an adult and enjoy free continental breakfast each day of your stay.

Nearby, a couple of other great other hotel options are the Howard Johnsons Plaza Anaheim Resort and the Ramada Plaza Hotel, Anaheim. The Howard Johnsons is a beautifully landscaped family resort on seven private acres is just an eight minute walk away from the main gates of Disneyland. The Ramada Plaza Hotel is the Ramada 2010 Hotel Award Winner. This hotel was recognized for demonstrating high levels of excellence. It offers a complimentary full American breakfast and complimentary parking for hotel guests.

San Diego
Boasting some of the finest weather in the lower forty eight, San Diego is a vacationer’s paradise. From great golfing, sailing, fishing and other outdoor sports, it too is home to some of the country’s best theme parks and attractions. Wyndham has more than 40 area hotels to choose from. A great value that is centrally located in San Diego’s exciting Gaslamp Quarter is the Ramada Gaslamp/Convention Center.

Set atop the hillside of Hotel Circle South, the three-story, all suite Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham San Diego offers a spectacular view of Mission Valley, spacious suites, and a complimentary hot breakfast buffet each morning. At the Wyndham Garden San Diego, near SeaWorld, you’ll find something truly unexpected. This is an ideal place for the whole family to unwind, slow down, and chill out. Here you’ll discover lush grounds planted with palm trees and a sun-soaked lobby decorated in tones of sand and pale blue.
