Overview of Costa Mesa

Head to the "action capitol" of the sports industry and find some Cosa Mesa apartments for rent. Located above Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Calif. translates to "coastal tableland." This quiet suburb in Orange County, which was once called Harper, didn't get its official name until 1920. Back then, it was known as a farming and agricultural area, growing sweet potatoes, corn, tomatoes, apples and strawberries. Today, Costa Mesa is one of SoCal's top spots for shopping and dining. Costa Mesa is just one mile from the ocean, so don't forget to bring your surfboard.
