Santa Ana buzzes with energy all year

Palm-peppered and looking like a fusion of a Wild West cinema backdrop and a Spanish hacienda, Santa Ana sits entirely encompassed by the urban sprawl of Los Angeles. The place beats with the same Latin-cum-American energy you'd expect of the City of Angels, too. Saloons and old courthouses dot the Downtown, while dusty ridges of chaparral host elegant villas and panoramic Santa Ana vacation rentals on the outskirts. There are also pretty parks, science centers, fashionista strips, and all the joys of greater Orange County to get stuck into.

Things to do

Encounter science, art, and aircrafts in Santa Ana

Santa Ana is home to some of the top museums and institutions in Orange County. Families often flock to the mind-boggling DiscoveryCube – part children's museum, part science exhibit – where dinosaurs and space explorations mix. The Bowers Museum is something altogether different, with its gemstones, Medieval artifacts, political photography, and Native American relics. And then comes the Lyon Air Museum, which has displays of vintage army cars and Flying Fortresses dating back to WWII.

Activities

Santa Ana balances culture and character

You'll want to delve into the cultural museums of Santa Ana, where the exhibits range from American greats to curious Chinese relics. After that, be sure to take the pulse of local life with a jaunt through the Mexican food courts, barista-led coffee joints, craft beer companies, and chichi cocktail clubs of much-loved 4th Street. Add a medley of elegant, palm-topped parks, spirit distilleries, and even monkey-spotted zoos to the mix, and you'll see that there's plenty to do just a stone's throw from those Santa Ana vacation rentals.

Weather

Inner-city Santa Ana is best done in spring and fall

There's a reason why most Los Angeles locals flock to the beachfronts of Huntingdon, Malibu, and Santa Monica in the high summer, and it's the same reason Santa Ana is best visited when the scorching heat of July and August has subsided. For the best sightseeing weather and top conditions for strolling down 4th Street, consider getting Santa Ana vacation rentals in the spring or fall, when temperatures hover between the 70s and 80s, and the days are typically dry and mild.

Natural features

Rolling surf and scorched mountains in Santa Ana

It's just a short jaunt on the LA transport system from the heart of Santa Ana to the rolling waves of Huntington Beach, where consistent surf and lively sand stretches draw crowds during the height of the summer. Go in the other direction and it's a totally different story. Rising softly against the cityscape in patches of Coulter pine and scrubland, the Santa Ana Mountains offer the reserves of the Limestone Canyon and the Whiting Ranch Wilderness. That's where rock climbers, wildlife lovers, hikers, and mountain bikers will find trails amid cliffs and forests.
