Oceanside California is a coastal city located on the California Coast between San Diego and Orange County. It is the third-largest city in San Diego County, California with a population of 183,095 as of the 2010 census.
The Oceanside harbor features shops, restuarants, boat rentals, boat excursions, as well as a large boat ramp. Helgrens offers sport fishing and whale watching at http://www.helgrensportfishing.com. Eat at Crabby Joes or many other great restuarants right on the harbor.
Oceanside is great for surfing also with many professional events held at the pier or the harbor. While on the subject of the pier, Oceanside has a 1,954′ long pier with a restuarant on the end and plenty of fishing. You don’t need a license to fish on the pier. Listen to concerts at the Plaza Amphitheater located right next to the pier. Stay at the beautiful Wyndham Resort which I have personally stayed for a weekend. It is a great hotel with a pool overlooking the pier and ocean. Check it out at:
