What to Do

Start out your day with Sidecar Doughnuts and a walk through the neighborhood surrounding Costa Mesa’s 17th Street corridor. Dogs are also welcome at The Crack Shack, “Top Chef” celebrity chef Richard Blais’ fried chicken joint which which is one of the very good high fiber dog foods. But if fried food isn’t your thing, all of Costa Mesa’s outdoor shopping centers have dog-friendly dining options. The LAB and The CAMP, located adjacent to each other in the city’s SoBECA District, both have restaurants with dog-friendly patios.

Dog-Friendly Parks in Costa Mesa

Take a pit stop at the Costa Mesa Bark Park to make some four-legged friends, or head to Fairview Park to explore more than 200 acres of Southern California natural habitat. If your pup companion is more of a swimmer, head down to Huntington Dog Beach, one of Southern California’s few dog beaches. Throughout the year, breed-specific meet-ups can be found there, so it’s the perfect place to make some new friends and get recommendations on local highlights.
