No Wheels Weekend

Costa Mesa Walkability

Costa Mesa, located in the heart of Southern California’s Orange County, has been named one of the most walkable cities in OC by Walkscore.com because of its close proximity to the award-winning theater and arts district; access to some of the best shopping in the world, and an unparalleled dining scene, all within a short walk from a variety of branded hotels in the city. However you plan to get to Costa Mesa, whether driving or flying, you’ll be able to ditch the wheels and start to enjoy your weekend from the moment you arrive. Westways AAA Magazine recently shared some ideas about how to be “Carless in Costa Mesa.”

What to Do

Experience South Coast Plaza, a world-famous retail destination, offering more than 250 stores and restaurants, all under one roof. You could truly spend a day here exploring the exclusive shops only found at South Coast Plaza, with its stellar cast of the world's top designers – from Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Hermès and Harry Winston. Incredible events are held year-round making an ordinary shopping trip into an adventurous, one-of-a-kind outing.

Triangle Square outdoor dining and entertainment center offers experiences for everyone, whether you’re looking for the hottest nightlife with the best DJs and dancing at TIME Nightclub or hanging with friends and bowling for a strike at Tavern + Bowl. Or make it a family affair with delicious authentic Mexican food at La Vida Cantina and the latest movie at Starlight Triangle Cinemas. Triangle Square has great offers and many special deals going on all the time.

Engage in a cultural experience and learn why Costa Mesa is The City of the Arts®. Take a tour of Segerstrom Center for the Arts; explore the Art Walk  with a free audio tour and see the free public art installations located around the performing arts campus.
