    I am visiting Disneyland for the first time in June. We want to leave Disney property and explore the area a bit. Any suggestions of fun things to see or do around the Anaheim/LA/Burbank areas?

    Burbank is at least an hour away from Anaheim. Los Angeles City proper is 35+ minutes away.

    We have a thread dedicated to things to do in Southern California. Give me some time to find it for you.

    We are going to the backstage Disney studios lot tour in Anaheim. I'm looking for things to see between Disneyland and Burbank. Also between lax and Disneyland.

    LA Live steamers is pretty cool as is Walts Barn, Hollywood is great (theater or celebrity house tours can be fun), Griffith observatory is great, Santa Monica Pier is cool, nearer to Disneyland the Queen Mary is worth a visit as is Knotts Berry Farm.

    Really that's only the tip of the iceberg. There's a lot to do In the greater LA area.

    Visit the Freaky Friday house in the Pacific Palisades.
    Watch a movie at the El Capitan, LA.
    Visit the Queen Mary, the Langham Huntington, Lake Gregory and others for Parent Trap filming locations.
    Spend a weekend at Camp Seely (camp in Parent Trap) as part of their family outing in June.

    Search the web for a bus tour. Some will pick you up at your hotel.
