Santa Ana is a large city in Orange County, Southern California. This wonderful historical town lays next to the Santa Ana River and only 10 miles away from the gorgeous California Coast. Santa Ana is built on the base of New Spain, and the city base was founded around 1770. After the Mexican-American war, this area was taken over by American settlers and today's city of Santa Ana. In the second half of the 1800s the Southern Pacific Railroad reached Los Angeles and Santa Ana which helped the city bloom.
Since the beach is only 10 miles away from downtown Santa Ana, there are plenty of sandy strips for you to kick back and relax on.

These beaches offer amazing, golden-sand beach shores and large areas to swim, and you can rent kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, jet skis, and surfboards. You can also find fishing areas, picnic, and barbecue areas and sports courts.
History and art are also a very important aspect of city life, and if you are interested in arts and heritage visit Bowers Museum, which specializes in art created by some of the world’s indigenous peoples.
