If you have time, you might want to run the kids down to the beach while you are there. Garden Grove is only about 15 minutes from the beach, depending on traffic. Seal Beach is a nice area where you can park and walk around. You can go from the sand to Main Street where there are shops and restaurants. You might also consider a day at Knott's Berry Farm, which is another amusement park that is fun. They have a restaurant just outside the park that serves the best fried chicken. The wait can be long - but it's worth it! Have a great time!
