Old town Santa Ana is beautiful and classic. Art galleries and food market is my go to places there. They have some weekend farmers market too. Nice to walk around with family.
This is a great city. There is lots of things to do in downtown SA. 4th street market comes to mind!
It's a good area for local culture and eats. Santa Ana is in the middle of Orange County so it's easy to get around.
Fin little downtown area to walk around, nice cafes and restaurants, a mix of neighbourhoods but mostly family oriented and safe.
