About Costa Mesa

Costa Mesa is a coastal gem between Los Angeles and San Diego and is celebrated as “the City of the Arts.” It transitioned from a semi-rural farming community to an urban area now renowned for its Segerstrom Center for the Arts and South Coast Plaza. Costa Mesa also houses the OC Fair & Event Center, one of the largest county fairs in the United States that offers festivals, music, and entertainment for all ages, making it an ideal destination for cultural festivals, concerts, fundraising events, and even educational field trips.

Beach lovers can head to Huntington Beach, which stretches for 8.8 miles and is excellent for surfing, fishing, bonfires, swimming, boogie boarding, kayaking, and other fun ocean activities. Also nearby is Newport Beach, which stretches for 10 miles and offers a beautiful underwater park and canyon for hiking, horseback riding, and surfing. These beaches attract millions of visitors each year and make Costa Mesa one of California’s best beach towns to live in. Nature lovers looking for time away from the sand can head to Talbert Regional Park, a 200-acre park, botanical garden, wildlife refuge, and recreational facility for all ages. For more information on activities in Costa Mesa, visit the city’s website here.

Costa Mesa’s dining cuisine is also not to be missed! The city’s culinary landscape offers dining options ranging from cozy, casual spots near the beach to upscale fine-dining restaurants.
