Downtown Santa Ana

July 12th, 2010 Comments Off on Downtown Santa Ana

During my visit to the Studio of the Theatres open house, I was made aware that many people aren’t familiar with the transformation downtown Santa Ana has undergone over the past twenty years or so. “I never knew this was here” seemed to be a common statement at the event.
