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. It is a popular destination because of affordability, beautiful beaches, attractive Harbor, and near-perfect weather. This also makes Oceanside a popular alternative to San Diego. Oceanside is located 35 miles north of San Diego and 90 miles south of Los Angeles. Far enough away to have small town appeal but close enough to provide urban amenities.Oceanside is the perfect Southern California relocation paradise that can service the entire family.
