College Spring Break: Coasters, Craft Brews & Comedy

Written by Visit Buena Park
Sun, shopping, epic eats, and affordable adventure are the name of the game when you head to the City of Buena Park for spring break! This O.C. hot spot is perfectly located near the beach, Disneyland®, and loads of shopping so you won’t have to travel for adventure. Grab your crew and book your hotel, we’ve got your visit all planned for you!

Day 1

Roller coasters are king at Knott’s Berry Farm where you can check out GhostRider—the longest, tallest, and fastest wooden roller coaster on the West Coast—and HangTime, the first and only dive coaster in California. Spring is the perfect time to head to the park as the Knott’s Berry Farm Boysenberry Festival brings boysenberry everything! Buena Park is the birthplace of this unique berry and made the area the world-famous destination that it is today.

Sip boysenberry boba, or even a boysenberry beer, while you chow down on over 75 one-of-a-kind boysenberry-inspired dishes. Grab a tasting card to try out favorites like boysenberry-glazed wings, boysenberry quesadillas, and boysenberry grilled sausage. Save room for the the boysenberry fun bun—a funnel cake and cinnamon bun combo that is slathered in boysenberry frosting (it’s as epic as it sounds). Insider tip: the Starbucks in the park is the only place you can buy the elusive Boysenberry Frappuccino!

The end of your day at Knott’s doesn’t have to mean the day’s fun is over. Nearby Rock & Brews makes for a rockin’ good time with over 60 different craft beers and classic comfort food. Grab a spot outside around the fire pit or play a game of beach volleyball and cornhole. After dinner, swing by The Cauldron Spirits and Brews to enjoy a round of bewitching drinks like the Knotty Kid—boysenberry cotton candy topped with a magical splash of vodka and lemon.

Stay the Night

With over a dozen affordable hotel options options in Buena Park, you’ll have more money for shopping and eating out during your spring break visit. Amenities like free breakfast, outdoor swimming pools, and free shuttles to nearby attractions like Knott’s and Disneyland® make Buena Park a no-brainer home base.

Day 2

Kick off your day with a jolt of Cuban coffee and a sweet pastry at Porto’s Bakery and Cafe. This recent addition to the Buena Park food scene is Yelp’s #1 rated restaurant and you’ll understand why when you visit. Drool-worthy cakes and pastries fill the shelves but it’s the papa rellena—a deep-fried mashed potato ball stuffed with picadillo—that makes the crowds line up.

Keep your foodie adventures going with a visit to nearby Anaheim Packing District. This food hall offers a wide variety of epic eats from the dragon’s breath dessert at I Am, to the too-pretty-to-drink bubble tea from Mini Monster. Don’t leave without asking how to find the hidden speakeasy in the basement, The Blind Rabbit. Enter through the sake barrels to a dark lair where every drink is a work of art.

Craft brew aficionados will want to make their way to the La Palma Beer Trail to sample from over 75 different brews on tap at 10 breweries in the area where Anaheim and Placentia intersect. Many are walking distance from each other and they are just a short Uber ride back to your Buena Park hotel.

Wrap up your day with Teatro Martini’s playfully-interactive variety show where music and magic entertain you during a four-course meal. Risqué jokes, rowdy antics, and playful innuendo are all part of the fun.


Day 3

Two equally epic options for your final day in Buena Park—will it be a beach day or a shop-til-you-drop day? Nearby Costa Mesa is home to South Coast Plaza and over 250 boutique shops like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Forever 21, H&M, Tiffany & Co and UNIQLO. Fuel up for a full day of shopping with a stop at Din Tai Fung to sample their famous soup dumplings. Bargain hunters will feel at home at the Outlets at Orange, just 10 miles from Buena Park. With 120 stores to choose from, you better hope your suitcase can fit all your fabulous finds!

If fun in the sun is more your speed, just a 15-mile drive down Beach Boulevard from Buena Park is Huntington Beach and its world-famous pier. Spread out your beach gear for the day or rent some bikes to cruise along the scenic coastline. A California beach bonfire is the ultimate end to your spring break adventure.
