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!

Invisi-Bottle

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.

Ready to Go? These 5 Eco-Friendly Transit Options Are the Best

May 19th, 2016

The road ahead takes all kinds of drivers. When you want to plan a big road trip or just go for a good walk down the beach, you may wonder what you can do to make the most environmentally-sound choice for transportation. These eco-friendly transit options, ranked in order, can save you some major cash while you enjoy the journey.

1. Walking

You may be surprised to learn that your own two legs are some of the most efficient ways to get from apartments in Anaheim to work, shopping and more. It may take you longer to walk or run from place to place, but you burn a lot of calories and you expend no energy or cost in the process. This is also a great way to fit exercising in your schedule.

2. Cycling

Since walking is not terribly quick, you should also consider cycling to be an excellent environmentally-friendly transportation alternative. The best bikes could run as much as $1,000, but they pale in a cost comparison to a motorcycle or car. You will keep in shape and avoid the hassle of freeway traffic. You won’t need to worry about gas either.

3. Public Transit

When you have to get on the road but your bike and your feet are not enough, public transit is always there to save the day. Hop on the bus or the train to get where you need to go, often at a lower cost than paying for a loan and regular upkeep on a car.

4. Carpooling

Even if you want to use your car, you might have options to minimize the number of drivers on the road. Consider starting or participating in a rideshare program at your work. You can carpool with people who live near you, saving on gas money and carbon emissions.

5. Efficient Vehicles

This is Southern California, and at times you simply need your own set of wheels. However, you can avoid a lot of environmental damage simply by choosing a vehicle with minimal emissions and high gas mileage. An electric or hybrid car can save you thousands of dollars in gas expenses for the time you own the car, and significantly reduce your carbon footprint.

The path from Anaheim apartments starts with a great plan for travel. These transit options will cut back on your consumption and minimize your stress. For more information about our floor plans and available units, contact our office today.

5 Eco-Friendly Spring Cleaning Tips For Apartments

April 1st, 2016

When it comes to spring cleaning, there’s no better way for people in environmentally conscious cities like Anaheim, California to show their appreciation for green living than using some eco-friendly cleaning methods. These eco-friendly methods allow you to avoid harsh chemicals, improve air quality, and organize your apartment the right way. Here are 5 tips to get you started.

Swap And Donate Your Stuff

Just remember, throwing out old clothes, computers, video games, DVDs, and other items contributes to the massive amount of garbage already being produced. Instead of just adding your items to the landfill, it’s time to think about giving it away or even swapping them for something you actually do want. There are a variety of websites setup for swapping items such as Title Trader for books and movies and Swap.com for clothing and kids stuff. Of course, there are also always eBay and Craigslist if you want to make some extra money while you de-clutter.

Make A Simple Disinfectant

Too many disinfectants are filled with harmful chemicals that not only can harm you, but can also leach into the water supply. If any of your disinfectants claim to be harmful or fatal if you swallow them then it’s time to try making your own natural disinfectant. For a standard disinfectant solution, mix the following:

  • 4 tablespoons of vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon of liquid castile soap
  • 2 teaspoons of borax

You can put this solution in a spray bottle and use it whenever you need it. For mold and mildew, all you need is straight vinegar

Wood Furniture Cleaner

For wood furniture, you can also make a eco-friendly cleaning solution that will bring out the natural beauty of your wood and help you avoid using harmful cleaning chemicals. Simply mix equal parts olive oil and lemon juice and apply it to wood furniture with a cloth in long and even strokes.

Vacuum Your Home With A HEPA Filter

For apartments in Anaheim, California the air quality is often quite poor. Besides dust and allergens, there are also pollutants in your home that you can actually filter out by using a HEPA filter on your vacuum. HEPA filters are industry-grade, and can even filter out toxic chemicals. To further rid your home of harmful particulate matter in the air, you should also be sure to change your furnace filter as well.

DIY Carpet Cleaner

Instead of relying on scented candles or other fragrances that contain harsh chemicals, allergens and even carcinogens, it’s time to make your house smell great the eco-friendly way. Here is what you need to make your own carpet cleaner:

  • 2 cups of baking soda
  • 20 to 30 drops of essential oil of your choosing, such as lavender, peppermint or primrose
  • You can also optionally add ½ a cup of salt
  • Get a jar and punch some holes in the top of it

After you mix the ingredients together, simply shake it out over your carpet and let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes before you vacuum it up. Your house will smell great and you won’t be breathing in harmful chemicals.

Ultimately, supporting your environment starts with where you living, which is why you should choose to live in LEED gold designated buildings that promote sustainability and energy efficiency.  If you want eco-friendly apartments in  Anaheim, California, then it’s to schedule a viewing today at The Crossing Apartments for luxury living with eco-friendly design.

5 Benefits of Practicing Yoga

March 28th, 2016


The most wonderful realization of the practice of yoga is that it is done with your entire being. You do not practice yoga only with your body; it involves you as a whole, including your mind and soul.

1. Relieve Your Stress
Yoga requires continuous effort and concentration. Narrowing your focus from the largeness of your daily struggles to the movement of your body helps immensely with easing minor pains and knots–the physical effects stress leaves on your body. Controlling the breath while moving through the postures is important. Doing so helps you ease yourself into relaxation and lowers your blood pressure and heart rate. Even better, yoga has been known to alleviate feelings of anxiety and depression.

2. Go With the Flow
Yoga allows you to observe how your mind and body work together in harmony. Those unsure of beginning yoga may hesitate for worry that they can’t do certain poses. However, even those with years of practice can hit roadblocks. Remember that your body fluctuates. Some days you may be able to ease into a pose that proves difficult a few days later. This is how yoga teaches patience and letting go of controlling how things should be. Interestingly, what applies to the body here also applies to dealing with difficult emotions. Yoga reminds you to let things be as they are and to accept them regardless of how good or bad they are.

3. Be Strong and Bendy
A yoga routine involves a series of poses that helps you build up strength and flexibility over time and with devoted practice. The hundreds of poses and variations work the muscles all over your body and strengthen your joints and tendons. As you become more flexible, you’ll find yourself with a greater range of motion and improved posture. Not only does yoga relieve the tension in your muscles from daily wear, it also offers chronic pain relief as well.

4. Stand On Your Own
When new to yoga, many feel surprised at how difficult it can be to do balance poses. This aspect of yoga also relates to your emotional state, as the worries and irritations of everyday life constantly pull you in opposing directions. Yoga helps improve this by engendering awareness and mindfulness of balance needed in body and mind. This encourages you to find your way back to yourself in unity.

5. Connect to Yourself
Yoga has a way of reminding you that you are whole just as you are. The combination of poses, breathing, and meditation exercises helps keep you in the present and in tune with your inner self. This helps with concentration and memory and leaves behind a sense of inner calm and equanimity.
