What to do in Costa Mesa: The LAB

First up is The LAB, located just around the corner on 2930 Bristol Street. Here, you will find a space to eat, shop, and take tons of fun photos for Instagram. Your shopping options range from a vinyl store, vintage clothing stores, plus coffee and donut shops.

What to do in Costa Mesa: The Camp

Very much like The LAB is The CAMP, and just across the street. Here you will come across juice bars and delicious seafood restaurants like West Coast Fish. Also, it is another great spot for a day out with friends. Additionally, there are some fantastic monthly events here. That includes Yoga in the Treehouse on weekends plus Wine and Music Wednesday’s. Also, for anyone who loves to go camping, make your way over to SEED People’s Market for all your camping essentials. They also have Home SEED Home, a perfect store to decorate your new apartment.

What to do in Costa Mesa: Social Costa Mesa

Over on 512 West 19th Street, you will find a unique restaurant, coffee bar, and co-lab space. So, for anyone looking to get things done without having to move far for a bite to eat or that extra cup of coffee, then Social Costa Mesa is the spot for you.

What to do in Costa Mesa: A Trip to the Beach

Last but certainly not least, the beach. Only a 15-minute bike ride away with our Zagster bikes, you can have yourself a fantastic beach day in Newport Beach. There is also Huntington Beach with a beautiful pier, and only an eight mile drive away from Baker Block. From a picnic to watching the sunset, one of the biggest luxuries about living at Baker Block is how close you are to some of the best beaches in California.  


Well, there you have it. From beach days to boho-chic workspaces, the good times don’t stop while living in Orange County. So get ready for a wonderful new lifestyle and begin to live life with a Costa State of Mind here at Baker Block. Enjoy!
