Anaheim Ducks Fan Experience
The nest for the ducks is located in Anaheim California right near the high way inside the Honda Center. The building was constructed in 1993 and while it has been up graded they do not have the same accessibility to things like elevators and extra stairs as some of the buildings to do to today. You will find the concourse section is very narrow. When you go arrive early because of the traffic in the area Although this sounds negative the building itself is fan and really family friendly. So taking the hike up the marble stairs could be worth it to sit the 17,174 seat arena. Before you leave make sure you grab a slice of Oggi's pizza and that if you get chips to delve into Southern California guacamole. There is also a fair amount of art the most famous hanging up is one called "Defending the Pond". The building is not far at all from Disney Land.
