About Uncover Santa Ana
Best-kept secret in Southern California.
We tend to hear that a lot when folks describe Santa Ana – whether it’s about our emerging arts scene, our walkable neighborhoods or the trendy new restaurants fusing tastes from around the world.
For being Orange County’s administrative hub and second-oldest city, and the 11th largest municipality in California, Santa Ana has a surprisingly low profile. And that’s a shame considering what’s here for the urban explorer. Four hundred and ninety restaurants, 60 art galleries, seven thriving retail sectors, two regional destination museums, one performing arts theater and a leading e-sports arena. Plus, one of the world’s most acclaimed performing arts high school – OC’s very own version of “Fame.”
So, after allowing our culturally diverse roots to fly quietly under the radar for years, we’re re-embracing our urban eclecticism – and the tens of thousands of foodies, nightlife fans, entrepreneurs and new residents flocking here every month.
