WELCOME TO OCEANSIDE! With
its wide, sandy beaches, adventurous
recreational opportunities, pristine
harbor, and one of the longest wooden
piers on the West Coast, Oceanside has
incredible amenities we love sharing with
visitors from around the world.
I invite you to explore Oceanside’s
classic beach culture, museums, and
magnificent coastal views. Enjoy the
delectable tastes of our burgeoning
foodie scene and craft beer breweries.
No one leaves here hungry!
Oceanside enjoys one of the most
desirable climates in the country, with
sunshine and coastal breezes nearly
every day of the year. No matter
the season, Oceanside is brimming
with thrill-seeking possibilities—from
skydiving at Oceanside Municipal
Airport or whale watching out of the
delightful harbor to biking along the
palm-tree-lined coast. Oceanside has
everything you dream of in a memorable
SoCal beach vacation.
And don’t depart without exploring our
city’s rich history, including the “king”
of all California missions, San Luis Rey
de Francía. Other “uniquely Oceanside”
not-to-miss spots are the world-class
Oceanside Museum of Art and the
California Surf Museum, an international
repository of the lifestyle sport of
surfing. The year-round Farmers Market
and Sunset Market are local favorites,
o;ering eclectic merchandise selections,
gourmet foods, and live entertainment.
Come back soon!
