Tips and tricks for visiting Santa Ana

Southern California is known for the sand and surf, and while it is relatively tourist-friendly, there are a few things you want to keep in mind.

Pack accordingly

The climate in Santa Ana stays in the 70 degrees Fahrenheit range, but peak summer months can rise into the 90’s. Coastal areas are always cooler than inland, so bring a light jacket if you plan to stay along the coast at night. It is best if you dress in light layers, especially because temperatures fluctuate during the day.

Be ready for the fog

If you are not used to being on the coast, you might notice that some mornings are blanketed in thick fog. Be careful driving in this weather, and remember to still put on your sunscreen. The fog does not shield you, and you might find you burn easier in the fog than on a bright, sunny day.

Staying safe in Santa Ana

As a major metropolitan area of Southern California, you do have some areas that are more prone to crime in Orange County. Never leave valuables in your car, and when you return to your hotel, always use the main entrance. Avoid non-tourist areas at night, because you may find yourself exposed to activities such as prostitution and pick-pocketing. Beaches are generally safe during the day and into the evenings, but they also have time restrictions. Therefore, you must leave the beach areas once closed.
