Costa Mesa

4.3
Known as the City of the Arts®, Costa Mesa lies in the heart of Southern California’s Orange County and serves the region’s internationally acclaimed arts and culture district. Visitors can enjoy Broadway theater and sought-after musical performances at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, take in designer shopping at South Coast Plaza or explore local boutiques in unique shopping centers like SOCO and The OC Mix, The LAB and The CAMP. A focus on artistry also expands to the culinary community. It’s easy to turn your stay into an Eatcation™ to dine at all of the award winning local hotspots, several headed by former “Top Chef” contestants, and hidden gems sprinkled throughout the city. Costa Mesa is just minutes away from top-rated beaches and other major Southern California attractions such as Disneyland® Resort, making it the perfect place for an Orange County getaway!
