One great asset of California is the beach. If you love the beach then you won’t have a problem finding one there.

One place that you should avoid is Santa Ana city because the crime rate is high and the area is not that clean. There’re not many attractions there either. There’s no beach in Santa Ana. Venice beach has many homeless and if you don’t want to be bother then you can try another beach. You can rent a car and drive around if you flew there.
