Santa Ana Maps and Orientation

(Santa Ana, California - CA, USA)

Being roughly equidistant between Anaheim and Irvine, the city of Santa Ana resides in the far southerly portion of California, within driving distance of the great metropolis that is Los Angeles. In fact, the city actually belongs to the huge Greater Los Angeles Area.

Santa Ana sits in the county of Orange, where it is the second-largest city and also the county seat itself. A population of more than 330,000 people means that this city is just outside the top ten largest cities in California, after Anaheim and slightly ahead of Riverside, in terms of populous.

Maps show how the city of Santa Ana lies on a series of relatively low-lying and flat plains, with little change in overall elevation levels. The western side of the city is intersected by the Santa Ana River, which is a fairy seasonal waterway following the arrival of both the Prado and Seven Oaks dams, built in 1941 and 1993 respectively.
