A city in Orange County with the 2nd largest Mexican American communities in California behind East Los also my favorite city in America. In Santa Ana has many car clubs and it's always a nice day to cruise around. Funk is never dead in this city cause people are bumping funk music in their cars while cruising. Lemme tell you this though; Santa Ana is not that ghetto yet it's no Beverly Hills either all cities have low and high income families.

Suburban rich kids from Newport Beach may talk shit about this city but when they really come down in Mcfadden or Bristol they would keep their heads down like pussies

A city of 600,000 in Central Orange County. It is the largest city of the OC. Only 10-15 minute drive to the beach. Borders cities like: Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Irvine, Orange, Anaheim,and Huntington Beach. The city is approximately 60% latino/hispanic, and their presence is very obvious in the central part (slum) of town. The norther outskirts, Santa Ana Heights, and the Southern part of Santa Ana is more modern and non-ghetto. The city's border to Costa Mesa, CA is the South Coast Plaza Mall, one of the largest and most expensive malls in America. It holds such stores as: Nordstroms, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, and boutiques of Ben Sherman, Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton, Prada, Chanel, Gucci, Lacoste, Escada, YSL, Dolce and Gabbana and Dior. The border between ghetto and middle class is along Edinger and S. Flower Street, but some places vary. The nicer part of town is beyond Segerstrom Street. Other spots in or around Santa Ana include Mater Dei High School (the most important Catholic high school on the west coast), OCHSA (the Orange County High School of the Arts), Artist's Village, Mainplace Mall,South Coast Plaza, Calvary Chapel High School, and countless other historical spots and recreational spots as well.

1. The poorest, most ghetto city in Orange County, without which Orange County would be ranked much higher in terms of average income.

2. The city that 949's are ashamed to admit exists as part of Orange County.

3. The only place in Orange County where drive by's, apartment overcrowding, illegal immigrants, obesity, and showering as infrequently as possible are considered the norm.

4. Where police drop off bums and hobos found in other cities.

5. The city in Orange County that unlike Newport or Laguna who have their own reality series, you will only ever see on TV for news coverage on either crime or poverty.
Newporter: Damn, there's no way I can eat these onion rings, they're way too hard but I'd hate to waste so much food!
Irvine person: Don't worry, just drop 'em off in Santa Ana!

The county-seat of Orange County, California. The census data shows approximately 330,000 people live in Santa Ana, but due to high illegal immigration problems we can estimate that it is much higher. Santa Ana is one of the most liberal cities in the county, It faces the worst gang problem, worst schools, and has one of the highest amount of apartment overcrowding in the United States.

In the 1960's, Santa Ana was primarily White. However, that has changed due to immigration and today the city is over 70% Mexican with very few Whites.

People who live in Santa Ana tend to have a lot of pride. While, 949's tend to blame Santa Ana for crime, language issues, and illegal immigration.

Hot, dry winds in Southern California that come from the desert, most common during fall or winter. They bring very low humidity, world class visibility, and perfect weather, until they incite arsonists to start fires, which the winds spread at explosive rates.
While New York was suffering with a mid-January blizzard, the Santa Ana winds came to Southern California and brought gorgeous 85 degree weather and deep blue skies to San Diego, at which point an arsonist scumbag started a fire that burned 750000 acres and 500 homes.
