Located at the northernmost end of San Diego’s coastline, Oceanside is home to some of Southern California’s widest beaches, historical landmarks and a distinct Southern California surf culture.
Long stereotyped as a military town for its proximity to the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Reserve, Oceanside has matured into a thriving community and a popular beach destination in its own right. A recent culinary boom has put it on the map as a dining destination as the town is filled with colorful eateries, brew pubs, and patios for post-surfing happy hours.
The California Welcome Center in Oceanside is open 7 days a week and provides local, regional and state maps, visitor guides, discount attraction tickets and hotel reservations.
Based on its richly vibrant and authentic concentrations of art, culture and creativity, Oceanside has been designated as one of 14 California Cultural Districts, which showcase some of the unique artistic identities that drive California’s culture. The districts help promote authentic grassroots arts and cultural opportunities, increasing the visibility of local artists and community participation in local arts and culture. Balboa Park and Barrio Logan are also official California Cultural Districts.
Oceanside is a major transportation hub with multiple connections within San Diego County and Southern California. The Oceanside Transit Center sits a block from the ocean and a few blocks from downtown Oceanside, making the train a convenient and easy alternative to driving.
