Costa Mesa, California

Over 60% of today’s travelers say food is the top reason they love to vacation. As the only city in Orange County to be home to Michelin-starred restaurants—three of them—Costa Mesa’s diverse culinary options have made this city a traveling foodie’s dream, the perfect place for an Eatcation®. Costa Mesa has its own “Ramen Row,” with a higher concentration of ramen shops than Little Tokyo. It’s the home of “Top Chef World All Stars” 2023 contestant Amar Santana and James Beard Award 2023 finalist Carlos Salgado. The city is truly a hotspot for culinary excellence in Southern California.
