In this episode of the I Heart Costa Mesa Show, we talk to Paulette Lombardi-Fries and Jenny Wedge from Travel Costa Mesa, our city's local travel and tourism organization. Come along with us as we flip our usual POV and take a tourist's view of Costa Mesa. We talk food, attractions, theater, shopping... and did you know there are 33 hotels in Costa Mesa? (Neither did we!) Listen, learn - and maybe get inspired to take a staycation of your own - on this episode of the I Heart Costa Mesa Show.
