3 Breweries in Anaheim to Chill the Hottest Summer Days

July 15th, 2014

Nothing keeps you cooler on a hot summer day like a cold beer. With several breweries in Anaheim to choose from, you’ll have plenty of ways to stay cool and hydrated this summer.

The Bruery specializes in experimental and barrel aged beer. Every beer is made with the purest methods and simplicity in mind. Uniqueness in every process of the beer brewing process is emphasized, from the ingredients used to the actual methods. There is a tasting room in the brewery that offers guests a chance to tour the facility, meet some of the staff, and taste the different beers.

If you are looking for a brewery with history, Anaheim Brewery is the place to visit. The first location was opened in 1870, and it was forced to close down during the prohibition period. Since reopening, the establishment has focused on creating fresh beer for locals. There are many special events on the brewery’s calendar, varying from art crawls to Taco Tuesdays.

For high-quality craft brews, look no further than Noble Ale Works near the Honda Center. One of the more unique brews is Breakaway Pale Ale, a beer that incorporates orange blossom and honeydew. On-tap brews can be purchased as a sample in “Taster” size, and some can even be purchased in a 64 ounce “Growler” size.

Contact us for more information about our apartments near breweries in Anaheim. We offer sleek and modern living close to all of the new activities in Anaheim.

  • The Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel: It has the name, and it has the reputation. It is the perfect place for you and your sweetie to let your hair down and enjoy living in the California sun for a day…or an entire weekend. Get glimmering skin with a pearl facial, book a couples massage with heated beach stones, or scrub your skin smooth with California oranges.
  • Pelican Hill, Newport Beach: With stunning vistas and a golf course you will never forget playing on, this is the ideal place for you to get away for that romantic weekend you’ve been wanting to take. The pool, the atmosphere and the privacy are just what the doctor ordered to lower your stress levels. A bungalow, sunset massage is in order while you’re here.
  • Hyatt Regency, Huntington Beach: As one of the most renowned spas in the world, this is the place you want to head when you just want some peace and quiet. Get scrubbed in salt, covered in mud and rinsed off with hydrotherapy. They’ll pamper and spoil you so much you just might call in sick to work all week long.

If you have a thing for designer duds, though, you need to find a special store that sells gently used luxury labels like Flatter Me…Again! consignment shop, at Canyon Plaza in Anaheim Hills.

With labels like Gucci, Chanel, Tory Burch, YSL, and Prada, this store is a goldmine of pre-owned merchandise. Plus, you can recycle your own closet full of designer labels this way and receive up to 40-70 percent of the profit.

Flatter Me…Again! offers handbags, designer denim, shoes, jewelry, trendy clothing, and accessories and will take the same. Being able to handle the merchandise and try things on (because labels aren’t necessarily accurate) is so much more satisfying than ordering online. For “sustainably chic” fashionistas, this is the place to go.

There are so many reasons to go green in and around our eco-friendly apartments in Anaheim. Schedule a tour of our premium amenities and spacious floor plans by contacting us today.

Need a Place to Hang? Hammock Decor for Renters

June 20th, 2014

You can still hang out and relax without having a hammock when you become a resident at our apartments for rent in Anaheim with patios. There are plenty of options you can choose to add to your patio that will still give you a great place to lounge without the need for trees to tie your hammock to or the need for heavy duty anchors in the walls or ceilings.

A terrific addition to your patio would be a modern swinging chair with a stand or a hammock-style modern chair. You can find these in a wide assortment of colors, patterns, and materials, so you can pick one that would look wonderful with your existing patio decor.

Another idea would be a hammock lounger, which saves on space if your patio is already decorated to the hilt, and it doesn’t require hanging.

What are your favorite ways to “hang out” on your patio this summer? Share your unique patio decorating tips with your apartment neighbors, and contact us today to find out more about our apartments in Anaheim.

This packing house was originally built in 1919 and was a local hub for commerce. Local farmers would unload trucks filled with citrus and prepare and load them onto rail cars to be shipped throughout the nation.

This building has now been renovated as a food hall, similar to those in Europe and South America, with more than 20 food vendors. Visit the butcher shop or a speak-easy bar, eat Indian food or soul dishes, purchase chocolate from the chocolate bar, check out the cheese shop, and much more.

There are communal tables for you to sit and enjoy your food and an outdoor amphitheater at Anaheim Packing House. Located at 440 South Anaheim Boulevard, this marketplace and food hall is only five miles from The Crossing Apartments.

You don’t want to miss out on the excitement and action at the Anaheim Packing House. Make your plans to go check it out today.

Eco-Friendly Yoga Mats to Take to Our On-Site Studio

June 11th, 2014

More than just a form of physical exercise, yoga is a spiritual and mental discipline that transforms both the body and the mind. However, the yoga mat beneath your feet may not be in line with your eco-friendly lifestyle.

Here are a few tips for finding that perfect, eco-friendly yoga mat for our on-site studio.

  • PVC is used in many of the products we use today because it is inexpensive and durable. It is so durable, in fact, that it will not biodegrade, filling landfills with dioxin, a dangerous chemical that causes cancer and many other health issues. You can find PVC-free yoga mats manufactured using safe and sustainable elements at many online retailers.
  • For example, Jade Yoga Mats are durable and American-made from natural rubber. On top of that, the Jade company replenishes its resources by assisting with the planting of trees in rural areas in several parts of the world.
  • Inspired by handwoven rugs from around the world and designed by Sophie Leininger, Magic Carpet Yoga Mats are another eco-friendly option, printed with environmentally-friendly inks. These UV-cured yoga mats will bring added beauty to your yoga experience.

    Our apartments in Anaheim with yoga studio are committed to healthy, eco-friendly living and environmental consciousness, offering amenities that support that concept. Contact us to arrange a tour of our green apartments in Anaheim.

    Try Smarter, Greener Electronic Shopping with EPEAT

    May 20th, 2014

    You have made a commitment to yourself to be more committed to the environment. You intend to support products that are manufactured with this in mind. Yet when it is actually time to make a purchase, how do you know the claims the manufacturer makes are true? Companies around the world are insisting that they are globally responsible. There should be an avenue to investigate them.

    Epeat

    The founders of EPEAT thought so, too. That is why they created a global rating system to encourage greener electronics.

    They wanted a resource that is user friendly for buyers, sellers, and manufacturers to identify those devices that adhere to strict criteria of environmental regard. They created a system that allows the Green Electronics Council, a non-profit organization based in Portland, to provide independent verification of manufacturer claims. You can investigate those claims online.

    When you go to the EPEAT website, you will see a link that allows you to search the registry. You can research electronic products before making a purchase, allowing you to shop for them with confidence.

    Our Anaheim apartments with ENERGY STAR appliances are already outfitted with eco-friendly, energy-efficient appliances, and we offer abundant phone, TV, and high-speed data ports for the green gadgets you bring home. Contact us to learn more about our distinctive, green apartments in Anaheim, and browse the SRG Green Living blog for more eco-friendly shopping tips.
