Founded in 1869 Santa Ana is a historic city with a modern heart, located within the warm climes of Southern California, just 10 miles from the coast. Santa Ana is part of the Greater Los Angeles Area but has its very own distinct charm and appeal with plenty of places of interest for residents and visitors along with fabulous dining and shopping opportunities. Santa Ana is “somewhat walkable” though if you’re living in Downtown you can do just about everything on foot, making this the best neighborhood in Santa Ana.
Meredith Parkwood is overall one of the nicest neighborhoods in Santa Ana to live in. It’s right in the eastern reaches of the city, close to Tustin, and includes all the shops, restaurants, grocery stores, schools and services you’d need, plus there are more parks and open spaces here to enjoy. The crime index is lower than the Santa Ana average so it’s a safe neighborhood too.
