South Coast (California)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

South Coast
The South Coast: San Diego to Ventura, and east to Riverside-San Bernardino
The South Coast: San Diego to Ventura, and east to Riverside-San Bernardino
Country United States

The South Coast is a term used in the West Coast region of the United States to refer to both the south Pacific Coast of California and the adjacent resort and residential communities.

It refers for the most part to the Southern California coastal counties of Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego due to the cosmopolitan "SoCal" atmosphere and location of major urban coastal centers. Of these counties only the western two thirds of San Diego, coastal half of Ventura, most of Los Angeles and all of Orange are included.[1]

However, some sources include the coastal half of Ventura, western part of Riverside, and southwestern part of San Bernardino Counties, and the northwestern corner of Baja California, because of their proximity to the Pacific Coast and because they are in the same bio-region and watershed.[2][unreliable source?]

Orange County located in Southern California is a traveller’s playground – from famous attractions such as Disneyland and the pristine coastline to the world-renowned Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Among the many interesting cities that make up the area, Costa Mesa is one of my favourites because it’s here you’ll find international shopping destination South Coast Plaza, a “shopping heaven” with more than 250 stores, boutiques and restaurants to enjoy! Hi, I’m Kate. I can’t wait to spend my day here, and take home some new fashions from South Coast Plaza! South Coast Plaza has an overwhelming number of retail categories – there’s anything your heart desires! My day starts in the Jewel Court, where I find an impressive array of prominent designers – such as Gucci, Cartier, Prada, Fendi, Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, and Chanel to name just a few. As we head into Carousel Court, I’m pleased to discover more casual, kid-friendly and popular shopping options. The Disney Store, LEGO, Banana Republic, J. Crew, Quicksilver, The Art of Shaving and many others add to this unforgettable shopping experience. There are also a variety of department stores. My personal favourite is Macy’s, where I found designer clothing, accessories and shoes all in one place. They even offer a Personal Shopping service for free! With the added bonus of an amazing selection of beauty products, handbags and shoes, Macy’s certainly meets my needs – or should I say wants? And for the men in our lives, there is a separate Macy’s Men’s Store that will cater to his needs. When it’s time for a break, I can relax in South Coast Plaza’s acclaimed ACCESS VIP Suite – an exclusive hospitality lounge with a dedicated concierge, complimentary refreshments, personal stylist services, a men’s sports lounge, and a place to check my packages! Other luxury amenities include full service concierge at four locations, valet parking, foreign language assistance, and currency exchange. As a visitor, I took advantage of South Coast Plaza’s VIP Passport, offering exclusive savings at over 100 stores, boutiques and restaurants, including Macy’s. And when you’ve worked up an appetite shopping, indulge in one of the chef-inspired and award-winning restaurants. With more than 30 choices from upscale Italian and contemporary French to Asian and authentic Chinese, it’s easy to find a cuisine to suit your taste. I have spent only a day here enjoying the sights of this incredible shopping destination, but I know I could spend much more time. South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa is truly a memorable experience. Come and see for yourself “where the world comes to shop!”



During the prohibition era the waters of the South Coast were a popular smuggling route in for alcohol.[3] Largely forgotten in the later parts of the 20th Century, with increased security at the Mexico–United States border smuggling has increased;[3] during the 2011 fiscal year, more than 200 smuggling vessels were observed.[3] Most of the vessels attempt to off load their cargo of drugs and/or illegal immigrants in San Diego County;[4] however, destinations are as far north as the California Central Coast.[3][5] Often, vessels used for smuggling operations are abandoned upon making landfall.[6]

Most often smuggling utilizes small boats, often Pangas.[7] Additionally, larger craft are utilized, either having crew members smuggling illicit items aboard, or hiding illicit items in shipping containers.[7] In one case, a Narco-submarine was caught near the Channel Islands.[8] In March 2018, the United States Coast Guard estimates it only interdicts a quarter of what is smuggled to the United States through the Pacific Ocean.[9]
