Costa Mesa is centrally located between Los Angeles and San Diego, minutes from the beach, in California's sun-drenched Orange County. Costa Mesa was named in 1920 when a contest was held offering a prize of $25 to the person who came up with the best name. Teacher Alice Plumer won the contest with the name "Costa Mesa" meaning "coastal tableland".

About 35 miles south of Los Angeles, the city was incorporated in 1953, when it was a semi-rural farming community of 16,840. Now, it's a suburban city of about 113,825, offering world-class shopping, arts, and dining.

Is Costa Mesa Safe?

Costa Mesa can be one of the safest cities to visit; but like any other place in the world, it also has its share of crime.
