About Costa Mesa, CA
This thriving town of just under 110,000 people is a focal point of Orange County. Originally, Spanish missionaries built a small way station used by cattle herders and, by the 1880s, it began to grow. First as an agricultural area known for its orchards and during World War II as the site of Santa Ana Air Base, a key point for the war in the Pacific.
Getting Around in Costa Mesa, CA

Costa Mesa has a few areas that are surprisingly walkable, most notably the Pinkley Park area. Although beautiful, Fairview Park is not very walkable and should be avoided by those without a car. The public transit in the area is run by the Orange County Transportation Authority and covers most of the city. Bus frequency will be an issue for most, however, as the normal bus routes will not run over the weekend.

Local Theater

<p>Aside from being near the ocean, there's plenty to do in Costa Mesa. The Performing Arts Center is rich in both symphonic music and opera. The repertory theatre has very good performances as does the Segerstorm Center for the arts which hosts events such as Symphony's, Musicals, Concertos, and even Masquerades. I hope you didn't forget to pack your good shoes! If you're looking for a cinematic experience look no further then Triangle Square Cinemas (and they show classics!).</p>

Steak and Tacos

<p>Eating out in Costa Mesa is a treat. The city boasts one of the best steakhouses in Orange County, Mastro's, which gets rave reviews from locals and tourists alike. Taco Mesa is a local favorite. It is housed in an old Taco Bell but the food is far from fast food. Sit outside and enjoy their blackened shrimp. There's a very good selection of different Asian style foods around town too. No doubt, there'll be a good one near your new Costa Mesa apartment.</p>

Dance Till the Wee Hours

<p>Nightlife can range from bars with peanut shells on the floor to upscale, chic nightclubs. The neighborhood around your Costa Mesa apartment will have great every day types of places but once settled you'll want to check out places like Sutra. It has both dinner and dancing. Club Vegas is modeled after clubs in its namesake and is one of the hottest places in town on weekends. Or if you are a night owl, try the Shark Club where dancing goes on until 3 a.m. Costa Mesa is great!</p>
