5 Ways to Celebrate National Cat Day

October 15th, 2016

While most Anaheim residents may associate October with pumpkin spice and Halloween celebrations, it’s also the month where cat lovers across the country recognize National Cat Day. Before you break out your costumes and sweet treats, it’s time to recognize the furry felines in your life! Do something special for your favorite kitty or give back to local cats in need this Saturday, October 29, with one (or more) of these great celebration ideas.

5 Ways to Celebrate National Cat Day

1. Binge Watch Your Favorite Cat Videos

Viral cat videos have been dominating the internet for years, so what better way to get your fill of these awesome little creatures than with a video marathon? Whether you’re on your lunch break, chilling with some friends or settling into bed, make sure you take the time to appreciate all the weird and wonderful qualities that cats possess today.

2.  Adopt a Cat

Looking to give a needy cat a forever home? When you live in a pet-friendly community, adding a special kitty to your home is simple! Do a good deed and adopt a cat from the local shelter or pet rescue organization on this important day.

3. Volunteer

Not ready to adopt another cat? Give back to your favorite local cat rescue or animal shelter for the day instead. Lending a helping hand is a great way to give back and get your kitty fix. If you can’t give your time, try giving back by donating blankets, cat food or toys!

4. Treat Your Cat

Let your cat know just how much you love them by purchasing a few new cat toys or treats that you’ll both enjoy. Catnip plants can make for a great decoration in the home and also serve as a special treat for your cats. If you’re looking for a fun play option that will keep you both engaged, invest in a fun laser toy or a new cat wand.

5. Enjoy Snuggle Time

Give your cat a little extra TLC today by spending a good chunk of time cuddling together. Go in hard with lots of extra petting time, plenty of head bonking and a few slow blinking sessions too. While you’re at it, go ahead and curl up on the couch together for a well-deserved cat nap.

4 Tips to Help You Sleep Better

October 3rd, 2016

Getting a full six to eight hours of sleep at night can make you feel healthier and more energized throughout the day. Unfortunately, many people either have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. In an effort to help residents of our apartments in Anaheim, California feel better, we are providing tips that will hopefully help you sleep better.

Sleep Tip #1: Create a Schedule and Stick to It

It might be tempting to want to sleep in on the weekends or take a day off of work to lay around, but that could cause severe problems when you try to go to bed. Our bodies are designed to operate on a schedule. If you interrupt that schedule by sleeping an extra hour or two on the weekends, you could find it difficult to fall asleep not just that evening but for days afterwards.

In an effort to improve your sleep, create a sleep schedule and stick to it. This means getting up and going to sleep at roughly the same time every day whether it is a weekday or weekend.

Sleep Tip #2: Remove All Electronics From Your Bedroom

Removing all electronics from your bedroom will help you avoid the temptation to check emails, start watching a movie or play a game online. Without this temptation you will be able to focus on falling asleep.

Removing temptation isn’t the only reason to get rid of the electronics in your room. Many scientists believe that the blue light comes from some types of electronics, such as cellphones or laptops, could work as a stimulant and make it difficult for you to fall asleep.

Sleep Tip #3 Avoid Caffeine Before Bed

Caffeine is a stimulant. Drinking it right before bed could cause problems when you try to fall asleep. Try to stop drinking all caffeinated beverages approximately 4 to 6 hours before you need to fall asleep.

Sleep Tip #4 Try Taking a Hot Bath Before Bed

Relaxing before bed can help you calm your body and make it easier for you to fall asleep. A great way to relax before bed is to take a nice, warm bath.

Of course, even if you follow these tips you won’t be able to fall asleep unless you feel safe and comfortable in your home. The Crossing Apartments have wonderful lofts, 1 & 2 bedroom apartments and townhomes that will make a perfect home for you and your family. Call us today to schedule a tour of our apartments in Anaheim.

Venture Out of Your Anaheim Apartments: 4 Foods to Eat at the Anaheim Packing District

August 1st, 2016

When you visit the historic Anaheim Packing District, it is natural to feel utterly overwhelmed with all of the food options. Perhaps even more problematic, it is highly likely you will instantly fall in love with the menu options at the first place you visit. You can make the most of your time in this expansive area by visiting as many restaurants as possible and trying the best of their food offerings at least once. You will not have to go far from your Anaheim apartments to find the best food you have ever tasted.

Cheese Curds

The fried cheese curds at The Kroft offer a sinfully salty and cheesy mix of flavors you will want to enjoy every day. These tasty appetizers have a base of tater tot sized cheddar cheese curds. The curds are dipped in a panko breading and fried crisp. The inside is gooey and the outside is delightfully crunchy.

Ramen Near Your Apartments in Anaheim

Venturing out of your apartments in Anaheim just to get soup may seem silly at first. Once you have tasted the ramen at Orange Tei, however, you will likely never have that thought again. The tonkotsu shoyu ramen leaves nothing to be desired. The rich flavorful broth offers a pork and soy sauce flavor profile that you cannot replicate at home.

Fish and Chips

When you are down by the water, you just have to enjoy a fresh batch of fish and chips. Head over to The Chippy Fish and Grill to enjoy this dish at its best. The fish is thick and flavorful with a light, crisp breading. The dipping sauce is so good you might just feel like writing home about it.

Gelato on A Stick

At the Popbar, you can jazz up a bar of fresh gelato with any toppings you choose. You pick your gelato pop flavor, and then have it doused with sauce, sprinkles nuts and much, much more. You can head over to this spot dozens of times without trying all of the flavor combinations.

Once you make your way through the restaurants in the Anaheim Packing District, you will likely return to many of them to try their other menu items. In fact, given the choice, you may never even cook at your apartment again. If you would like to learn more about The Crossing Apartments, go ahead and call 877-719-4818 to inquire about the available floor plans and schedule a visit.

Three Fun Pool Games to Help You Stay Cool

July 1st, 2016

Summer is here in Anaheim, California, and the temperature is rising. Next time you’re looking looking for creative ways to cool off, try one of these fun pool games!


You’ll need a clear plastic bottle with no tint and the label removed. Make sure it has a cap that’s either also clear or the same color as the pool’s floor. Start out by filling the bottle with pool water and screwing the cap on tightly. Have the players line up at the edge of the pool with their backs turned. Then, drop the bottle somewhere in the pool. When the players hear the splash, they’ll turn around, jump in, and search for the bottle. Whoever finds it first wins the game and will take a turn throwing the bottle in the next round. It may sound like an easy game, but the bottle should be nearly invisible and almost impossible to spot.

Water Frisbee

For this game, you’ll need a Frisbee and two laundry baskets. Water Frisbee plays a lot like basketball: The laundry baskets are placed on opposite sides of the pool. The group is divided up into two teams, each with a basket to defend and score on. If there’s an odd number of people in your group, one person can be the out-of-water referee in charge of retrieving the Frisbee when it goes out of bounds.

Pool Volleyball

Unlike the first two games, this one requires some setup and materials you might not easily have on hand. You’ll need a volleyball net wide enough to reach across the pool and two poles to support it. Grab a beach ball for an easier game — especially if kids are joining in — or a rubber volleyball for more of a challenge. Once you’ve got everything ready, divide the players into two teams and have them stand on either side of the net. There aren’t any strict rules to pool volleyball, so you can decide on what makes the most sense for your particular group. Because water is more dense than air, it takes a lot more work to move through. At the same time, it’s also much easier on your knees compared with traditional volleyball. This is one pool game that is sure to keep you fit while having fun!

Residents at The Crossing can enjoy playing these games in our spacious resort-style pool. Or, if you’re not yet a resident, take a tour of our well-maintained Anaheim apartments.

Three Concerts That The Crossing Residents Might Be Interested In

June 15th, 2016

There’s no question that The Crossing Apartments in Anaheim does everything it can to provide its residents with a great place to live. Many of you have told us how much you appreciate the opportunity to work at our business center, exercise in our fitness center and swimming pool, relax at our clubhouse and eat in our courtyards.

There is also no question that you live in a great area. Anaheim has numerous entertainment options. You live in the same city as Disneyland and you can attend Angels’ baseball games here. The Los Angeles area is also a great place for concerts. Look at this summer’s Orange County Concert Calendar. The options are endless. Here are three concerts that music and culture aficionados might make sure they don’t miss out on.

1. Boston:

We have more than a feeling that you might be interested in celebrating the rock group Boston’s 40th anniversary at the 2016 Orange County Fair, which will be open Wednesdays through Sundays from July 15 through Aug. 14 in Costa Mesa. Boston will perform on Saturday, July 16 at the Pacific Amphitheater at 8:15 p.m. “More Than a Feeling” will probably be played. There are innumerable other options at the Pacific Amphitheater this summer. The schedule lists concerts by Three Dog Night, Styx, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Chris Isaak, Ziggy Marley, and Earth, Wind & Fire.

2. Led Zeppelin:

The Orange County Fair will also feature regular tributes to many great entertainers at The Hangar music venue in Costa Mesa. During the summer, tribute bands will play the music of Queen, ABBA, the Eagles, Journey, Billy Joel, Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, the Bee Gees, Neil Diamond, Wings, Metallica,and Led Zeppelin. The tribute to Led Zeppelin has a catch — Led Zeppelin will be there and will play its greatest hits!! The tribute to Zeppelin will be on Saturday, July 23 at 8:30 p.m.

3. Ted Nugent:

We said that culture aficionados might be interested in Los Angeles area concerts this summer. We were referring to the Motor City Madman. Nugent performs at The Coach House Concert Hall in San Juan Capistrano on Tuesday, July 5 at 8 p.m. It could be more than a musical event because he’ll probably talk about politics — and the USA’s two major presidential conventions are in July.

After you come home from a concert, you can play shuffleboard in the game room, perform relaxing exercises in the yoga studio and read in a community area while talking to friends. You can learn more about the amenities at The Crossing Apartments by phoning 877-719-4818.

3 Ways to Tell Dad Happy Father’s Day

June 9th, 2016

A good dad is always there for you, and Father’s Day is a great time for you to be there for him. On your dad’s special day, take note of his interests and plan a special occasion around how he likes to spend his time.

The Grilling Dad

Some dads are masters of the grill, while some just think they are. No matter what kind of dad you have, let him relax and enjoy himself today while you do the grilling. Gather all the family in the outdoor seating area of your Anaheim apartment and cook up some juicy steaks or tender chicken on the barbecue grill. Give dad a front-row seat incase he wants to give you grilling advice. Add tasty salads and some watermelon triangles for dessert, and don’t forget dad’s favorite beverage in the cooler. It is his day off, after all.

The Sports Fan Dad

Put together an old-fashioned family day at the ball park for dad and the entire crew. Find out his favorite team, either major or minor league. Get inexpensive tickets, in the bleachers if you can get them, to add to the experience. Buy peanuts and popcorn, boo and cheer along with the crowd, and ask dad for his opinion on who’s the best pitcher on the team. If he’s a fan, he’s sure to have his favorites. Creating a rowdy crowd that cheers the team on is a great way to support your dad and his interests.

The Overworked Dad

Some dads do it all; they never seem to stop moving. Between working extra hours and spending time with the family when they’re home from work, the overworked dad never seems to catch a break. If this describes your dad, it’s time to give him some special relaxing treatment. Start with letting him sleep in, something he might not have done in a long time. Make every meal with his favorite foods, let him control the remote control all day long, and make some popcorn to enjoy while you watch that boring adventure movie for the fifth time. Pamper dad from morning to night to show him how much you appreciate everything he does for the rest of the year.

It’s easy to ignore all the great things dads do, especially since most of them do it without calling attention to their special contributions. Dads are an important part of family life, and they deserve to be treated great on their special day. Living in an environment that offers multiple amenities helps to make that dream a reality. Our apartment complex is designed for enjoying your life, not just living it. Call our office today to arrange a tour.
