If you are a potential home owner and are considering the Costa Mesa residential market for the first time, or perhaps you are new to the Orange County community altogether, here is some additional information that should prove useful. The Costa Mesa community is in the immediate vicinity of two excellent hospitals; Hoag Hospital Newport Beach, and College Hospital Costa Mesa. The Costa Mesa real estate market also benefits from having three excellent golf courses in the community; Los Logos, Mesa Verde and Mesa Linda Golf Courses. The Costa Mesa real estate market is just west of Metro Pointe at South Coast and the Orange County Market Place which is a permanent weekend swap meet with over 900 merchants, snack booths and seasonal live entertainment. The Costa Mesa homes for sale are found south and east of Huntington Beach State Beach, which is a over 120-acre beach with athletic courts that offers swimming and fishing and is known for its surfing.
The Costa Mesa properties are just east of Newport Beach where you can rent a jet-ski, sign-up for a whale watching excursion, or even take a boat out to Catalina Island for the day – the city is also home to the largest recreational harbor on the west coast. The Costa Mesa community is just north of the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve. If you take the 55-freeway north, away from the Costa Mesa real estate market, this will take you out to the inland empire counties of Riverside and San Bernardino. The 55-freeway connects with the 405-freeway which if you take it north will take you into Los Angeles, and if you take it south, will take you down into San Diego. The closest airport to the Costa Mesa homes for sale is found at John Wayne International in Santa Ana, and Los Angeles International Airport is approximately 45 minutes to the north. The Costa Mesa residential market is approximately 40 minutes away from Downtown Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center, and a similar distance away from Angel Stadium (where the Los Angeles Angels play professional baseball), and the Honda Center (where the Anaheim Ducks play professional basketball).
