Santa Ana has more than enough delicious food choices! They just recently opened a new little market at Downtown Santa Ana with a bunch of different types of food. No matter what you are in the mood for, you are bound to find exactly what you want to eat. As for drinking, I am not old enough yet but I do often see happy hour specials at restaurants.

Well as of now, as most people know, California is in a drought and it seems that it is only becoming worse because it has not been raining. People do not realize how serious this drought really is, therefore they are not really taking the correct steps to helping out. Big earthquakes only happen like once every couple of years but even when they do they are not as bad as other places. I only gave it an "It''s bad" rating because of our horrible drought.
I feel like the Local Businesses in my area are pretty great. I live in Santa Ana, California. There are, of course, some stores and businesses that are better off than others but I have yet to see one that is completely unacceptable. Some of the places that I have noticed look the worst are the motels, I always see scary looking people hanging out around them.
