Los Angeles, California to Disneyland
02.07.2010 - 02.07.2010
Yesterday we spent most of our day driving from Las Vegas, Nevada to Los Angeles, California. we stopped to have dinner at the Sycamore Inn in San Bernardino, California. Built in 1848, the Sycamore Inn was orignally a stage coach inn. We are staying in Los Angeles for three nights at the Custom. This morning we got up to an early start to make our way to another side trip. This time to Disneyland. I have been to the Disney World parks a few times in the past, but never to its origin at Disneyland. Disneyland of course, is much smaller than Disney World. The four large parks that make up Disney World, have a small representation in the one park of Disneyland. There is however a newer extension of the park known as California Adventure. While we enjoyed the atmosphere today at Disneyland, we couldn't say the same for California Adventure. Unlike the inside, organized, family style rides that Walt Disney is known for; California Adventure mimicked more of a boardwalk atmosphere of a smaller amusement park. And besides the couple of rides they duplicated from Disney World, they only had a couple of new attraction (which was a metal roller coaster, which was design to look like a wooden coaster and a ferris wheel). Overall, I would have rather spent more time at the original Disneyland park. A great day toward an end of a long trip.
Ride of the day: the Matterhorn Bobsleds
