Personally, I am happy that COE has been able to announce the 2014 conference will be returning to Anaheim, as it is only eight miles from my house. Located right across the street from the Happiest Place on Earth (Disneyland, for those of you that don't recognize that tag line), the host Hilton Hotel is convenient to many of the famous and not-so-famous landmarks of Orange County and Southern California. In addition to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Anaheim Stadium (major league baseball), Honda Center (the NHL Ducks), and Newport Beach are minutes away. A bit farther are attractions like Universal Studios, Hollywood Boulevard, the Magic Castle, Queen Mary, and Venice Beach (nothing like Newport!). Over the last 50 years, I cannot recall any April with even an inch of rain, especially the last 20. Average temperatures are in the mid-70's during the day, dipping to the high fifties at night (so if you go to the Magic Kingdom or Disney's California Adventure, or Downtown Disney at night after the TechniFair, you may want to bring a light jacket).
I hope to highlight some of these local attractions and many others in the coming months through this 'mini-blog' in the COE NewsNet. Look for more in the next issue.
