The Oceanside pier is one of the longest piers on the West Coast, stretching an awe-inspiring 1,942 feet out into the Pacific Ocean. At the end of the pier you will find the famous Ruby's Diner, perfect for a casual meal above the waves!
You can spend all day at the pier, swimming, surfing, exploring local restaurants, or taking in a concert at the amphitheater.
Ever wondered how surfing got started in the United States? Visit the California Surf Museum in Oceanside and find out! In the California Surf Museum you will find stories and exhibits chronicling the history of surfing, including the board and bodysuit of well-known surfer Bethany Hamilton.
Sometimes called the "king of the missions," Mission San Luis Rey is the largest of the 21 California missions. Stunning architecture, beautiful gardens, and lots of California history combine to make this historic mission a must-visit.
Come in spring or early summer when the gardens are in full bloom, or sign up for one of the mission's "Quiet Days " to spend a peaceful day away from it all.
