Oceanside is a true SoCal beach town with a tangible laid-back vibe. The city boasts spectacular year-round weather, gorgeous beaches, a historic wooden pier, quaint New England-style harbor, and charming neighborhoods. Oceanside is home to the 125,000 acre Camp Pendelton, which acts as a natural barrier between the urban expanses of LA and Orange Counties to the north and laid-back San Diego to the south. O’side (as locals affectionately call it) has a near-perfect climate and invites visitors to revel and relax at the 3.5 miles of white sandy beaches Oceanside offers. It’s known for its marina and shops, trendy new restaurants and coffee shops and home to the California surf museum, Oceanside museum of art, picturesque harbor, sandy beaches, and the largest wooden pier on the West Coast. In recent years, Oceanside has gained significant attention for its burgeoning culinary scene. If you’re looking for food & drink, a stroll down Coast Highway 101 will present a dizzying selection of bars, restaurants, boutiques, and entertainment options.
