“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
The City of Santa Ana is close to the freeway that bears its name and many of the most popular attractions in Orange County, like Disneyland Park, Newport beaches and the Crystal Cathedral. While other Orange County cities have more scenic landscapes, Santa Ana holds its own with several museums and cultural centers. Children and adults alike squeal inside the Quake Zone at the Discovery Science Center, which locals call "The Cube." The city has some of the best taquerias in the county, and urban grit that's missing from its manicured neighbors.
