Santa Ana

What a splash that Santa Ana makes!

She is the more virtuous "Ana" of O.C. (compared to Anaheim). Well, this is perhaps in name onlyl!

Visitors come to her to see her city zoo, Taco Bell Discovery Science Center, Bowers Museum, other museums and galleries.

Anyone who comes here can feel, for the most part, safe, despite some significant reports of crimes (mostly isolated and at night). Still, Santa Ana extends goodness- so, don't hesistate and arrive to her.

Fact:
S.A has the largest population in O.C.

Artist Village

Art thrives in S.A! And yet, not many people locally know about it! Santa Ana is really a quiet artist, but a vibrant one! The center of the Santa Ana arts is at the Santora Arts Building where painters, sculptor, poets and others create, unite and share.

Una Ciudad Latina

Santa Ana has a strong Latino heart. In fact, almost 3/4 of her enitre body is of hispanic decent.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:strong and vibrant art community,good shopping area, key historical and central part of Orange County, California
  • Cons:some unsavory areas (undeveloped or crime areas) as any big city has
  • In a nutshell:Spetacular Art (and more) in Santa Ana!
