Courtyard by Marriott Buena Park: Located in the heart of Buena Park, it’s only steps from all of the action and adventure that this amazing city has to offer. This newly renovated hotel has an outdoor fire pit, a fitness room, and outdoor pool. The rooms are spacious and offer a bedroom, a lounge area, and a small kitchenette.
There is no shortage of divine dining options around the city of Buena Park.
New Moon: Our visit to New Moon was one of the best Chinese restaurants we’ve ever visited. The restaurant has been in the family for over three generations and they’ve perfected the art of Chinese classics with a modern twist. We highly recommend the Hunan crispy shrimp, General Tsao’s Chicken, and Bok Choy.
Il Palco: Il Palco is known as the best Italian food in Buena Park and they did not disappoint. We loved indulging in Italian cocktails such as the Campari Spritz and Negroni while noshing on fresh burrata and prosciutto. We chose to sit outside at the bar and enjoy the beautiful Buena park weather.
Porto’s Bakery & Cafe: Porto’s Bakery & Cafe was voted the #1 Restaurant in the Country by Yelp in 2016 so you know it’s good. This Cuban Bakery has a coffee bar, perfect pastries, and sumptuous sandwiches. We highly recommend their signature Cuban Sandwich – the ham and cheese are cooked to absolute perfection! There are four locations of Porto’s, but only one location in Orange County.
