WHAT: On Saturday, Nov. 19, 2016, Visit Anaheim, the destination marketing organization (DMO) for Anaheim and Garden Grove, staged “A Day in Anaheim” event inviting Vancouverites to escape the cold and soak up the California sun. Visit Anaheim took over Vancouver’s indoor beach volleyball venue, 6 Pack Beach and transformed it into a sunny Californian experience complete with palm trees and blue skies! The free family-friendly event included a variety of interactive activities including beach volleyball, face painting, bouncy castle, treats, games on the sand, movies on the beach, food truck fare and much more! 
Attendees had the chance to win prizes including a grand prize trip to Anaheim. Event-goers also learned about exclusive access to discounts and deals created for Canadian travelers from Anaheim travel partners. For more information, please visit
WHY: Canada is Anaheim’s #1 source for international visitation, welcoming 500,000+ travelers in 2015 and 700,000+ to Orange County (Source: CIC Research, Inc.). With daily direct flights from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Orange County’s John Wayne Airport (SNA), Anaheim is an easy, sunny destination for Vancouverites to escape to when the winter doldrums set in. 
The event capped off Visit Anaheim’s 2016 Canadian Road Show, where Visit Anaheim was joined by more than 20 area travel partners, meeting with travel agents, travel trade and media in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver.
