California Adventure’s entire purpose is to celebrate the best of California. And what’s more Californian than a gorgeous seaside boardwalk? Paradise Pier sprawled across 14 acres, making it the largest land at the resort. And every section of Paradise Pier had something fun for everyone: roller coasters, tamer rides, boardwalk games, snack carts, and live performances. But most importantly, Paradise Pier had an amazing bay in the center. No matter where you went in this area, you’d have a stunning view.
