Located just minutes from the Pacific Ocean in Orange County, Costa Mesa has all of your shopping needs to get ready for summer including South Coast Plaza, the largest shopping destination in California, which holds more than 250 retailers and fashion designers including Gucci, Fendi and Christian Dior. The CAMP is the first-known environmentally conscious retail campus and offers everything from native vegetation to organic custom tattooing. Another must-see retail stop is The Lab, known as the “anti-mall,” for shoppers looking for more independent and artistic shops.
It’s easy to see why Costa Mesa is known as the City of the Arts after a stroll around Segerstrom Center for the Arts. The campus is filled with renowned artwork and even a hidden sculpture garden incorporating indigenous plants and materials. Before seeing a Broadway show that night, enjoy dinner at Vaca, the latest Spanish eatery by “Top Chef” finalist Amar Santana.
Grab an organic expresso from Portola Coffee while visiting The OC Mix, one of the most popular spots with shops such as a craft cocktail store and a chocolatier. Whether it’s driving down to Newport Beach just minutes away or taking advantage of the entertainment, shopping and dining in Costa Mesa, a variety of remarkable activities await for everyone to enjoy.
