Costa Mesa, Orange County's Entertainment Capital


Costa Mesa, CA-The Orange County Fair ended but that doesn't mean the fun was discontinued. An exciting autumn line-up of musical acts and entertainment is coming your way, courtesy of the weekend Market Place. From a Hearse Parade at Halloween, to an Accordion Fest, the entertainment isn't the same as the pricier neighboring Performing Arts venue shows that cost from $25 - 150. Price of admission at the fairgrounds often is a can of food as donation, or $2. Location: 88 Fair Dr.

In addition to two of the county's entertainment mainstays, Costa Mesa is also the shopping capital. Move over Rodeo Drive, 'cause South Coast Plaza has every upscale couture boutique selling diamonds and Guccis, just like the snobbier BH counterpart!

Costa Mesa isn't spoken in the same breath with Laguna & Newport Beach, but when you stop to think about all the concerts, foods and shopping you can do in one city, it is a real gem!
