Santa Ana St. Patrick’s Day: Spend the Holiday at Auld Dubliner

St. Patrick’s Day is finally here! The weather is finally getting sunny and our prospects for a great spring and summer are starting to look up. This year St. Paddy’s Day falls on a Friday, which is spectacularly because most people can stay out late and not worry about work the next day. St. Patrick’s Day has a long and rich history dating back to the earliest settlers in America and hundreds of years later we still get excited to celebrate the day.

Santa Ana has a number of great bars but the Auld Dubliner on Park Ave has a history of going all out with drink specials, in bar entertainment, green beer and much more that makes the bar a go-to spot for celebrating. The Dubliner is expected to have food and drink specials all night, along with a fun and inviting atmosphere.

Fun Things To Do In Santa Ana, CA

Fun Things To Do

Like most people, after the holidays you might be feeling the pinch in your bank account. The great thing is that there is plenty to do in Santa Ana this January that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. And what’s even better, you will not need to travel far from your California Palms’ apartment.

Check out the Lyon Air Museum located at 19300 Ike Jones Road where you can see plenty of WW2 memorabilia, old motorcycles and classic cars. An added plus is because it is near the airport; you can see jets taking off and landing, which kids really love. This is a great place to go in January or other cooler months because it can get pretty warm during the summer at the museum since it is located in a hangar.

January is also a great time to visit the Santa Ana Zoo because the animals are more active during the cooler weather. Go on safari or take a ride on the 50 Monkey Ferris Wheel, which salutes the Zoo’s commitment to always having at least 50 monkeys in the zoo at any given time in addition to 80 other species of animals.
