In my last post, I talked about my weekend trip to Sacramento, the capital of California. I very much enjoyed escaping the busyness of San Francisco for a couple of days, so I decided I would try to have a similar experience every month. This last month, I went to Santa Ana.
I absolutely loved it! Not only I enjoyed very much the scenery (everything is extremely well maintained, beautifully designed and packed with gorgeous palm trees) but I also had a great time participating in one of their local events: Savor Santa Ana.
On this little weekend trip, I also had a chance to visit Balboa Island, a small artificial island in Newport Beach with a very iconic style and extremely expensive houses, often owned by actors and major celebrities. The view from there was absolutely beautiful, and I was greatly surprised to learn that they enjoyed nice summer-like weather all year around.
While there, I also tried their iconic Balboa Bar, a stick vanilla ice cream dipped in chocolate that is usually covered in rainbow sprinkles and served on the street. Delicious!
Overall, Santa Ana was a great getaway for the weekend, and I would recommend visiting to anybody who’s looking for a beautiful beach city with an amazing food culture.
See you next month 🙂
