Oceanside Featured Hotels

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.

The headquarters for Genica Corporation (, Bergensons Property Services, Learning Forum International and International Stem Cell Corporation are among some of the companies located in Oceanside.

The city of Oceanside is 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.

Attractions include:

  • 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.
  • The bungalow house featured in Top Gun, starring Tom Cruise, is located on South Pacific Street, which is one street up from the Oceanside Strand, a section of residential houses along the coastline. This will become a coffee house once the Malkin resort is built.
  • In June 1997, a record 221,000 fans watched X Games III, held in San Diego and Oceanside. The surfing competition took place at the Oceanside Harbor Beach.
  • The California Surf Museum is located in downtown Oceanside.
  • Oceanside has a large Day of the Dead celebration held every year on or about the weekend nearest November 1 with Carnival rides, street vendors, and musicians
  • Usually held the second weekend in September, Oceanside also holds an annual Harbor Days festival with street vendors, food, and local artists displaying their wares.
  • Oceanside is host to the world's 2nd largest Beach Soccer festival, The Southern California Beach Soccer Championships has become an international event and it is usually held in the middle of May at the Oceanside Harbor Beach.
  • The final competition scene from the film Bring It On was not shot in Daytona, Florida, but at the beach shell in front of the pier.
  • In the late 1990s, Oceanside had a minor league baseball franchise of the Western Baseball League, in the Miracosta College Ballpark but folded operations and lacked a standard ball park, now the site of the North County Waves semi-pro collegiate team.
  • The hills of Oceanside are said to form a lying down person in the shape of the "Sleeping Indian" near Papagallo Rd. in Oceanside
