One of the hottest neighborhoods in the O.C. 

Located in Orange County, Eastside Costa Mesa is one of the best places to live in California, its both hip and laid-back and only a short bike ride to Newport Beach. The cities youthful vibe and carefree lifestyle comes from the simple pleasures of living close to country clubs and gourgeous beaches

 

17th Street

Right smack dab in the middle of Eastside Costa Mesa is 17th Street, which has some of the best local shopping that the local area has to offer.  Shops like Nothing Bundt Cakes, Fleur De Lys, Plums Cafe, and many others.  Of course right next door is Hoag Hospital (officially in NB, but a stone’s throw away), Christopher Michael’s Chocolates, and one of my favorite ridiculously good restaurants called Eat Chow.
