Oceanside is a coastal city located on California's South Coast. It is the third-largest city in San Diego County, California. The city had a population of 183,095 at the 2010 census. Together with Carlsbad and Vista, it forms a tri-city area. Oceanside is located just south of Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.
Originally inhabited by Native Americans, the first European explorers arrived in 1769. Spanish missionaries under Father Junipero Serra founded Mission San Luis Rey de Francia on a former site of a Luiseño Indian village on the banks of the San Luis Rey River. In the early 19th century, the introduction of farming and grazing changed the landscape of what would become Oceanside. The area - like all of California - was under Spanish, then in 1821 under Mexican rule, and conquered by the U.S. in 1848.
In the late 1850s, Andrew Jackson Myers lived in San Joaquin County. A native of LaSalle County, Illinois, he returned in the late 1880s and lived in San Luis Rey. In 1882 Myers moved on the land that was the original town site for Oceanside. A patent for the land was issued in 1883 by the federal government. It was incorporated on July 3, 1888. The city hall as of the early 21st century stands on the former Myers homestead.
In the 20th century, Oceanside was a beach town devoted to activities on a 6-mile (9.7 km) stretch of beaches. Residential areas like downtown (built in the 1890s), South Oceanside (built in the 1920s and 1930s), and developments east of Interstate 5 (built after World War II) are preserved and remodeled when these houses are considered to have historical value. Since the establishment of Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in 1942, Oceanside has been home to U.S. armed forces personnel, and the wartime industry of WWII and the 1950s had an ammunition manufacturing facility in the city. After 1970, the main focus of Oceanside was suburban development and a choice for newcomers to move into then relatively affordable housing. Oceanside continues to be known for the value and appreciation as a vacation home market.
Some points of interest are the Oceanside Pier, which was first built in 1888 (now rebuilt for the sixth time), is the longest wooden pier on the western United States coastline at 1,954 feet. Also, Oceanside is home to Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, one of the Alta California missions. If you are or like surfing, then you might be interested in the California Surf Museum, which is located in downtown Oceanside. At a time when the historical roots of many beach communities are rapidly changing and/or disappearing, the California Surf Museum is rising to the challenge of providing a strong link between the ocean, the many ocean sports, and the lifestyles of the community. The museum is actively locating, collecting, documenting and preserving historic surfing and related artifacts and memorabilia. Through a series of rotating exhibits, the California Surf Museum presents a varied picture of the many facets of surfing.
For boaters and sportfishers there is a fuel dock, four-lane launch ramp, bait receiver, and slip rentals including electricity, water, restrooms, showers and laundry facilities. Visiting boaters will find 50 guest slips for short-term mooring. The Oceanside Yacht Club promotes many boating activities for both slip renters and visiting boaters. The Yacht Club welcomes your membership, whether you are a boat owner or just a boating enthusiast.
Stroll and shop in the waterfront Harbor Village shops where you'll find nautical gifts, resort wear, tropical giftware, and souvenirs and mementos of your visit to Oceanside. Along with all these delights, you will find Oceanside's wide, sparkling, sandy beach with fire rings, picnic and barbecue areas, children's play area and sand volleyball courts.
