Beachy Keen

The gentle ocean breeze, sounds of the surf crashing to the shore, surfers, and bikini clad sun worshipers scattered along the white sand beach make Oceanside, California a great beach destination.

A quintessential beach town along the California coast, Oceanside has a lot to offer.  The classic wooden pier reminiscent of days gone by is a prominent landmark of this friendly beach town.  While there, make sure you walk to the end of the pier to grab a bite to eat at Ruby’s Diner.  The kids will love it and so will you.
Take a break from the beach and head inland to Mission San Luis Rey, the largest of the California missions, or cruise the coast highway (Historic Route 101) through downtown Oceanside.  Next, stop at Oceanside Harbor Village to shop, have dinner, or enjoy the boats.  We went to Harbor Village at sunset and had some spectacular nautical views.

Whether you love to ride the waves, bask in the sun or just enjoy the laid back vibe of a beach town, Oceanside, CA is for you.  It truly is beachy keen.
