365 Things To Do In Costa Mesa – Tour OCPAC – Day 13

When I first moved to Costa Mesa, I was excited to find out that it was nicknamed “City of the Arts.” There are so many great art venues that are centrally located for all of the OC. So today, why not take a tour of Costa Mesa’s Orange County Performing Arts Center? If you can’t go today, don’t worry – they conduct FREE tours every week on Saturdays and Wednesdays at 10:30am (but make sure to call ahead in case of a change – 714-556-2122).

What will you see in the tour? The new Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, the Samueli Theater and Lawrence and Kristina Dodge Education Center at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, the plaza with a sculpture called “Connector” by Rochard Serra, and the original Segerstrom Hall. The lighting in the Concert Hall is award-winning so take a close look. I think the coolest part is the opportunity to go behind the scenes and check out the backstage areas. So amazing!

Tours are approximately one hour long.

Have you ever been here for the tour? What do you think?
