    Heed to my Head's Up on Ana-crime

    by marinarena Written Aug 16, 2013

    So locally, Anaheim does get referred as "Ana-crime". Overall, the city is quite safe and undoubtedly, the city has done well to keep the tourist areas very clean, accommodating and secure. Personally, I've ventured through her all over the place, day and night, and have survived quite nicely myself. I would just pay extra attention when venturing esp. in some western portions, away from Mickey's world. Particularly, in the neighborhoods (where most tourists aren't likely to visit anyway), there have been elevated gang-related tension, police confrontation, and some other crime and disturbances. Just don't look like you are walking on the streets at night aimlessly. Honestly, West Anaheim (and some neighborhoods elsewhere) is not so attractive looking with hardly any point of interest and most visitors would be simply passing through in private or public transportation.

    Of course, being a big city of roughly 350,000 people and growing, there is bound to be some urban crime and disenchantment but no need to cancel your D-Land trip because of my forewarning. Especially with attendance records at an all time high level at D-Land alone

    .. What a wonderful place to vist and enjoy the magic that has been created her by Walt Disney..This is a huge complex with just so many sights to see but is not without its dangers, Travelling in such a venue theft is the furtherst thing from your mind, but just Beware as some people look for the "unwary "tourist or holidaymaker to steal whatever is possible. Unfortunately the way that the economy is these days more and more tourists are being targeted by thieves..
    Always be aware of your surroundings especially in large crowded areas.
    Try and not carry all your money in one place ..have another "emergency stash"
    Be aware of where you are carrying your money.
    When making a purchase ..Don't flash a lot of cash..
    REMEMBER...These people are good at what they do .....They do it for a living.!!!
