Anaheim is not LA????

I see lots of people say this on the web, yet Anaheim is apart of the LA metro area according to the government

Which is it?

It's not in the same county but It's pretty woven into Los Angeles



Anaheim would be between Fullerton, Garden Grove and Orange.

The Greater Los Angeles Area, or the Southland, is a term used for the Combined Statistical Area (a group of interacting metropolitan areas) sprawled over five counties in the southern part of California, namely Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Bernardino County, Riverside County and Ventura County. It has been one of the fastest growing regions in the United States for decades, first in Los Angeles County, then Orange County, and now in the Inland Empire. As of 2005, the official estimate of the population of the Los Angeles metropolitan area is more than 12.9 million, while in 2009 the larger five-county region had a population of over 17.6 million. Either definition makes it the second-largest core-based statistical area in the country, behind the New York metropolitan area.[2] The term "Southland" has also been used to refer to all of Southern California.[3]

First of all, not a good sign for Anaheim that they can't make it onto the map.

I think you can comfortably say that Anaheim is part of the LA area, as is all of the OC. Seriously, the LA Rams and LA Angels played in Anaheim. And to say that some in the OC distance themselves from LA doesn't mean much since many OC residents distance themselves from Anaheim as well.

But as we have discussed before, "LA" has different meanings in different contexts.

Thanks. Because during the rumors of the Sacramento Kings moving to LA, I have heard the the team will be called the Los Angeles Royals, and some people in the OC claimed Anaheim is not LA and not a suburb of LA, and the team should be called the Anaheim Royals.

Are we just talking about Anaheim, or the OC as a whole? Orange County is definitely the LA area. Same market, same television channels, etc. But there are some pretty stark cultural and demographic differences.

milq: you have a genius for finding the news that I missed.

Cultural differences can also be found within the OC. South County people look upon Santa Ana as being hopelessly rundown and Fullerton as basically the same as Downey or other south LA county cities. Some North County look upon South County as rich, but no culture hicks, not really living in the city at all. Any group of 3M plus is going to have a range of attitudes.

So I guess Orange and Tustin look down on the larger cities huh.

When Disneyland opened in 1955, there were still orange groves between Anaheim and Los Angeles. Obviously, no more. What once was a nearby town, then became a suburb, is now definitely part of the L.A. area.

lol Orange County would not be what it thinks it is if it wasn't for LA. First of all there was NO Orange County till the turn of the past century when it was created out of the southern portion of LA County.

It is all Metropolitan LA, if they don't want to be part of it, how would they fend off on their own? They'd be like Monterrey and Santa Cruz with beautiful coasts, and a world famous amusement park. Which by the way, it was originally intended to be built north of Griffith Park where the Disney Buena Vista Studios are now, but they wanted part of the park and the City of Los Angeles said nope.
Walt used to take his kids to Griffith Park frequently since they lived close by, and his idea flourished from those visits.

I've been to L.A. 6 time in the last 6 years. Every time I go there, I like it more and more. However, Dennis, you have a point. We always stay with my wife's uncle in San Juan Capistrano in southern OC. NONE of the local people I've talked with consider Orange County as "L.A", or part of Greater Los Angeles. The always call it SoCal. They actually have disdain for L.A. and L.A County. Anyone know why? Is it just a affluent thing with them?

As for Anaheim, my wife's uncle is opening up a Buffalo Wild Wings near there. I wasn't too impressed with that town. It looked pretty scummy to tell you the truth.

The politics of the two counties couldn't be more different. Orange County, as a whole, is infamously regressive, as well as notoriously suburban-provincial. It attracts a very specific kind of individual, and he or she is likely to be behind the "Orange Curtain" for white-flight reasons. These are the people who insist that government money never be "wasted" on mass transit and that only the biggest and best freeways grace the landscape.

Walkable places like San Juan Capistrano are the exception in the county.
