With a large number of its visitors coming from outside of southern California, South Coast Plaza is a well-known international destination, located in Costa Mesa’s South Coast Metro neighborhood. This shopping center, which is privately held by the Segerstrom family (a family with Orange County pioneer roots), currently covers 2.2 million square feet and has more than 280 shops and restaurants.
