If you’re looking for wide open golden sand with close proximity to Los Angeles & Orange County, head to Oceanside, California in San Diego's North County Coastal region. Relatively small crowds and easy access to the beaches add up to a relaxing, quintessential Southern California beach experience. Oceanside is one of those places you can head to for a quick jog, or idle a long summer day away in the sun. Plus, there are plenty of family-friendly restaurants in the area (most notably, Ruby's Diner on the end of the pier and the fish & chips shops in the harbor) and fun '50s style motor lodges—some even with pirates and other themes.
