How far is the airport from downtown Costa Mesa and can I get there easily and cheaply?
John Wayne airport is just four miles from Costa Mesa so even a cab ride will be short and probably around $10. There are some buses and shuttles that run there from certain areas of town so if you're near one of them, you can get to the airport even more cheaply. LAX is 35 miles away, and the best bet is to take a shuttle from John Wayne.

I've got dogs. What are the best places in Costa Mesa for being outdoors with pets?
The best place to be outdoors with dogs in Costa Mesa is, undoubtedly, the Costa Mesa Bark Park. Featuring two full acres, a double-gated entrance, trees, benches, water dispensers, dog waste bags, and restroom facilities, CMBP is a fenced off-leash park in the City of Costa Mesa. It also has a separate section for small, elderly, and disabled dogs. There are a number of other non-dog-specific parks in Costa Mesa, but your pets must be kept on a leash.
Are there local sporting events in Costa Mesa?
Yes. The week-long US Open of Surfing takes place every summer in nearby Huntington Beach, California. For land-based sporting events, Los Angeles is located 50 minutes northwest of Costa Mesa. Los Angeles is home to several professional sports teams, including the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball, the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League, the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association, and the Los Angeles Sparks of the Women's National Basketball Association. For Major League Soccer, the Los Angeles Galaxy and Club Deportivo Chivas USA are based in nearby Carson, California.
How much are utilities in Costa Mesa?
Utilities in Costa Mesa won't change too drastically from season to season because of the area's temperate climate. That said, a family of three should expect to pay an average of about $300 per month. This number includes trash and sewage, which is billed as a utility. This figure also depends upon your proximity to the coast, your family size, and the size of your home. As a general rule, people who live in coastal or near-coastal cities tend to pay less for cooling than do those who live more inland. Heating expenses are usually not much of an issue since there are few months when you really need to turn on the furnace; and then, it's typically at night.
Do most people in Costa Mesa rely on public transportation?
74 percent of Costa Mesa residents drives a private automobile to get to and from work every day, while just under 6 percent uses mass transit for the same purpose. That number, however, is 91 percent greater than the California average and 156 percent greater than the national average. Costa Mesa is served by the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), which operates several bus lines in the area.
