Costa Mesa offers cash to lure getaway shoppers
In a competitive travel market, sometimes the thing that will lure visitors better than anything else is cold, hard cash. Just ask the Costa Mesa Conference and Visitor Bureau, which last spring and summer shelled out rebate checks to thousands of visitors who took advantage of an offer to get partial travel reimbursement and credit toward meals. It's one of the most unique travel packages around.

The "Drive and Dine Package" now has become something of a fixture in Costa Mesa. It is aimed at getting residents from all over California to forsake their local shopping centers for a couple of days and visit South Coast Plaza -- the "Ultimate Shopping Resort." The offer is simple: come stay a couple of nights in one of Costa Mesa's seven luxury hotels and get a $30 reimbursement for travel expense, as well as $20 toward dinner at one of the 21 participating restaurants. It's offered before and after Christmas season.
