Complete Guide To Theme Parks In Southern California

Published by under Los Angeles,San Diego

Ferris Wheel

Southern California, or SoCal, stretches from north of Los Angeles to San Diego and points south.  It’s a popular vacation destination for its wonderful climate, miles of dramatic coastline, endless stretches of great beaches, mountains ranges, giant redwood forests, deliciously trendy food, glitzy shopping, laid-back California attitude and family-friendly attitude. Oh, and don’t forget the long list of amazing theme parks with thrill rides galore and water fun.

Classic seaside amusement parks, then called Boardwalks, have existed along SoCal’s coast since late 1800s and early 1900s, the heydays of the gilded age.  After years of decline, they emerged in modern, high tech form both along the SoCal coast and a bit inland.  While there were others before it, Disneyland placed SoCal on the map as a global vacation destination.  Since SoCal encompasses a large geographical area, this comprehensive list begins just north of Los Angeles and works down through the Anaheim area, through Orange County, and south to San Diego.
