    The seat of Orange County government is a vibrant mix of fresh restaurants, great local galleries and a kid-friendly museum and science center. Designed with Spanish and Mission-style architecture and a bubbling fountain, the train station is a convenient hub for an easy bus ride to the downtown area, the Bowers Museum, and the Discovery Science Center; both are great choices for keeping brains engaged even while kids are on vacation. Your bus ride is free with your Metrolink ticket.

  • East End Downtown Santa Ana

    Gallery

    If you haven’t visited Santa Ana lately, it’s time you did. Santa Ana has taken off with the emergence of unique shops, galleries, restaurants, and creative spaces. Come visit the 4th Street Market with 15 carefully curated vendors offering the kind of food you just can’t get anywhere else. East End is a pedestrian promenade located between 3rd and 5th Streets and Bush and French Streets in the heart of Downtown Santa Ana.

    Tip: Explore Downtown. I absolutely love going to Downtown Santa Ana. It is called "Art Walk" and there are many galleries, bars, and specialty shops. My favorite place is the Gypsy Den. It has a super relaxed hipster vibe, excellent food and beer, and they have open mic events weekly where you can see a wide variety of musicians like cellists and accordion players. - Tessa Schutz
