  Crystal Cathedral, Garden Grove (CA)

Garden Grove!

Well, call her either a sung or unsung city. The Southern California rock group, Sublime, has a song called "Garden Grove". Singers who have lived at least at one point, include the lead singer of Offspring, Dexter Holland and of Save Ferris, Monique Powell. Moreover, famous athletes, Troy Polamalu (NFL-Pittsburgh Steelers) and Lenny Dykstra (former player of the MLB's Philadelphia Phillies) have called Garden Grove home.

The highlight of this town by FAR is the Crystal Cathedral (now called " Christ Cathedral", many pictures in my OrangeTravelogues),lead by famous spiritual leader, Robert H. Schuller. A visitor should come here for a spiritual or an architectural experience! Aside from this, G.G. is a good alternative place to stay when in the Disneyland area. There is a "hotel row" which is in a convenient area, between the theme park and The Block at Orange! Otherwise, GG is quite on the modest side. Some neighborhoods have their share of criminal concerns but then others are great places to be and prove to be highlights of good, less expensive real estate in Orange county.
