Santa Ana, California is an ideal destination in Southern California, centrally located in Orange County. Founded in 1869, Santa Ana is one of the oldest cities in the area, featuring original architecture and a historic downtown. With history comes culture—hosting a community that offers authentic Hispanic flavors and an art scene that is a mix of funky and folk. The destination offers convenient air access from multiple major airports, with John Wayne Airport (SNA) being only two miles from several of Santa Ana’s hotels. The airport is served by eight commercial and commuter airlines including Alaska, Allegiant, American, Delta, Frontier, Southwest, Sun Country, United, and WestJet, offering over 40 nonstop flights.

In Santa Ana, there is no shortage of activities and events. Get a behind the-scenes tour of Orange County’s first craft distillery, The Blinking Owl. View art at the largest museum in Orange County, Bowers Museum. Catch a live musical performance at the Observatory or a classic movie at the Frida Cinema. Shop for name brands and artist creations at MainPlace Mall. Home to a diverse array of artists and musicians, art is everywhere in the city. From galleries and studios to parking lots and alleyways, local art captures the true essence of Santa Ana and highlights the community’s Hispanic/Latino heritage. 

In the historic downtown neighborhood, The Yost Theater is located front and center on the East Street Promenade of Santa Ana’s Historic East End District. The Yost has been an iconic landmark of Santa Ana’s vibrant downtown since 1912. With a capacity for up to 1,000 standing guests and a history of hosting world-class events, there is no other venue of its kind. Newly renovated, the Yost’s historic roots and 1920s decor have been meticulously restored and modernized, with traditional touches to elevate the guest experience. Unique with a character all its own, The Yost provides a stunning stage for a wide range of events.

Santa Ana celebrates its cultures and community pride throughout the year with events from weekly “Dancing in the Streets” to the annual Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festival. Endless opportunities for activities make the city the perfect place for planning meetings and events, boasting a collective of 2,463 sleeping rooms, as well as approximately 42,000 square feet of meeting and event space in a variety of hotels and other historic spaces.

The rooftop pool bar at West Hollywood’s Andaz Hotel is the highest in Los Angeles, and now the venue has another singular destination. It’s partnered with Marquis, the LA-based beverage brand, on Norma Jean, a limited-edition cocktail.  

 

Two things California is justly famous for are its beaches and its wine, which come together at the California Wine Festival. Founded in 2004 in Santa Barbara, it’s one of the largest outdoor wine festivals in the state. And it’s a great way to entertain clients or gather co-workers together for sips, bites and bonding.

Over the next 10 months, the California Wine Festival will take place at four locations in Southern California, all offering ocean views and plenty of Pacific breezes.

Here’s the schedule:
