Homes in Oceanside
Oceanside is a classic California beach community located about 35 miles north of San Diego and just south of Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton. With its 3.5 miles of warm sandy beaches, palm-lined streets, historic wooden pier and Cape Cod-style harbor village, Oceanside is the quintessential Southern California beach experience. The nearly perfect climate of Oceanside has ranked the city fifth most desirable in the world and the second most desirable in the entire United States. Oceanside is athriving seaside community of long-time residents, local armed forces, and beach-loving tourists.
The mainstays of the Oceanside economy have been tourism and the proximity of Camp Pendleton. However, Oceanside currently enjoys a diverse economic portfolio and has a number of business advantages. Oceanside has a large sporting and recreational goods manufacturing sector as well as numerous biotech and medtech companies. Oceanside offers a unique combination of outstanding coastal location, well-priced available land and multiple resources. Agriculture is also important to Oceanside's economy. San Diego County is a major agricultural producer and the warm climate of Oceanside makes it ideal for the growing of tomatoes, avocados, citrus fruit, nursery stock, and flowers. A popular weekly Farmer's Market with fresh produce and local art is held on Thursday mornings, while a Street Fair takes on a festival atmosphere in the evenings.
The Oceanside community is rich in natural treasures, tradition and history. From the earliest dwellers to the pioneering families who settled here and built on the land, Oceanside has become a place where civic involvement, military pride and ethnic and social diversity join for a common cause, the ongoing celebration of Oceanside’s unique history. The historic Mission San Luis Rey, a National Landmark, is a beautiful centerpiece located in the San Luis Rey Valley of Oceanside. Founded in 1798, Old Mission San Luis Rey is home to the Franciscan Friars and is the largest of the twenty-one California Missions.
Oceanside Harbor Beach is a popular surfing area, especially in summer south swell season. The Oceanside Harbor and Marina, a 900+ boat recreational marina, provides a variety of water sports like out rigger canoe, sailing, jet skiing, scuba diving, boat rentals, and whale watching excursions. Oceanside City Beach, aka The Strand, is the classic West Coast beach complete with boardwalk, pier and razor-straight coastline with wide open sand. There are a number of small parks along the boardwalk with restrooms, picnic tables, barbecues, and a playground by the pier enjoyed by families year round. The historic Oceanside Pier is a prized community resource as well as a monument to its citizens' persistence in seeing that a pier remains a part of its oceanfront recreational facilities. At its current 1,942 feet in length, the pier is one of the longest wooden construction recreational piers on the West Coast and a common ground for Oceanside residents and tourists. Other beach-related attractions include the nearby California Surf Museum and seasonal surf and volleyball competitions.
