Oceanside is the third-largest
city in San Diego County, California. Together with Carlsbad and Vista,
it forms a tri-city area. The city is located just south of Camp Pendleton,
the busiest military base in the United States.

uniquely located in the center of three religious philosophies. The spiritual
triangle of Oceanside features the Prince of Peace Benedictine Abbey to
the north, the Rosicrucian Fellowship to the west, and the Mission San
Luis Rey de Francia, a Franciscan Mission to the east.
The Oceanside Pier, first built
in 1888 (and now in its sixth incarnation), is the longest wooden pier
on the western United States coastline at 1,954 feet (596m).
Oceanside is home to Mission
San Luis Rey de Francia, one of the Alta California missions.
Oceanside is also known for
the nature grounds of Mount Ecclesia, launched in 1911. This place is the
location of the international headquarters of a fraternal and service organization
called The Rosicrucian Fellowship. It is also the location of its spiritual
healing temple, called "The Ecclesia", situated upon the promontory of
a high mesa.

from the film Bring It On was not shot in Daytona, Florida, but at the
beach shell in front of the pier.

had a minor league baseball franchise of the Western Baseball League, in
the Miracosta College Ballpark but folded operations and lacked a standard
