A city of economic activity and a center for entertainment are what some might say about the city of Anaheim. Anaheim, California, is a city of about 300,000 people, the tenth-largest in California. Its name is a contraction of "Ana" taken from the nearby Santa Ana River, and "heim," a German suffix meaning "home."
