Oceanside, California, is the northern most city in San Diego County centrally located between Los Angeles and San Diego.  A beachfront community of 169,350, the City serves as a major transportation hub serving both metropolitan areas; however, the City's greatest pride is its scenic beaches, beautiful surf and the best vacation weather anywhere in the world. For those who have yet to make their first visit, here's more of what Oceanside has to offer:

Oceanside boasts some of the widest, sandy beaches in Southern California as well as a picturesque 1,000-slip harbor with shops and restaurants. Other attractions include Mission San Luis Rey, the king of California’s Spanish Missions; Oceanside Museum of Art; California Surf Museum; and Buena Vista Audubon.

Oceanside has the best surfing conditions in Southern California; hosting major surf, body boarding and body surfing competitions every year. Fisherman can cast off the Oceanside Pier, the longest wooden pier on the Pacific Coast; or take a fishing boat; or a whale watching tour out of the Oceanside Harbor.

Take a stroll, watch surfers catch a wave, gaze at the sunset, or dine at Ruby’s Diner at the end of the Pier. Bicycle riders enjoy the 7-mile San Luis Rey River Trail and Coastal Rail Trail. Oceanside is a short drive from the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and Sea World.
