You cannot visit Southern California without a stop at Disneyland. With two parks, Disneyland and California Adventure, one day definitely is not enough to see and do everything. Costa Mesa is also conveniently located between Los Angeles and San Diego meaning you can spend one day at the Happiest Place on Earth and another at the world-famous San Diego Zoo.

The most convenient airport for your Costa Mesa vacation is the John Wayne Airport, formerly known as the Orange County Airport. The 405 and the 55 are the major freeways through Costa Mesa, but expect traffic delays especially during rush hour, 6-9am and 4-6pm. If you would rather take public transportation, travel with ease on the "57" OCTA bus.
