Summer in Buena Park, California, is a fun time. We’re near Disneyland, Los Angeles, and the beach, and our city itself has some great, unique activities. From the historic district to the visiting Knott’s Marketplace to the concerts at Boisseranc Park, here are three of the best places to visit in Buena Park:


Buena Park Historic District

Ready for a little step back in time? You can tour the Buena Park Historic District to step inside buildings preserved from the 1800s. The Whitaker-Jaynes House has original fixtures as well as some historical items donated over the years, and the Bacon House and the Stage Stop Hotel are two of the oldest surviving structures in Orange County.


Knott’s Marketplace

Knott’s Berry Farm is famous, but California Marketplace is a lesser-known gem and one of the best places to visit in Buena Park. There’s the world’s largest Snoopy store, delicious jams and jellies, boysenberry BBQ sauce, and delicious baked goods. It’s a great place to buy a gift, get a treat, or just walk around!


Concerts at Boisseranc Park

Wednesday nights July through August, Boisseranc Park becomes a hub of activities and entertainment. Head to 7520 Dale Street on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. to watch artists like the Mariachi Divas, The Country Club Band, and Hard Day’s Night. And if you come at 5 p.m., there are activities, including Kids Zone, Twilight Swim, and community vendors to check out. 

In addition to these concerts, this summer in Orange County, the OC Parks Summer Concert Series and Sunset Cinema Film Series are back! From June 18 to September 10, there will be 10 free concerts and 13 free movie showings. The concerts will be on Thursdays at 5:00 p.m., with the music beginning at 6:00 p.m. The movie nights will be on Fridays at 6:00 p.m., with the movie beginning at sundown. Visit the website to see a schedule of the events.
