Costa Mesa Facts
Costa Mesa, (Coast Table) is named for its flat geography and its location near the ocean. This city of over 110,000 started out as primarily agricultural. In the 1890’s the largest town in the region was Fairview. (At modern day Harbor and Adams.) However, a flood destroyed the nearby railroad and Fairview died out while the small settlement that came to be known as Costa Mesa blossomed.
Nowadays, Costa Mesa is a city whose primary industry is retail and services. Costa Mesa is well known for its shopping at South Coast Plaza. It also has an industrial area known as South Coast Metro. Costa Mesa is also home of the Orange County fairgrounds which attracts over a million visitors a year to one of the largest fairs in California.
