Santa Ana: Hidden California Gem
Santa Ana is one of the lesser known California beach towns, but it offers sun and sand that are some of the best in the state. Local beaches are rarely overcrowded here, so it's a great place to enjoy a peaceful day in the sun. Visit the Santa Ana Zoo for a well kept small zoo with an especially impressive aviary. The Discovery Science Center is a fully interactive kid's museum that features really fascinating exhibits about the science of earthquakes, the origins of wind, and much more."
