From sunny Oceanside, California, welcome! Whether you're a new recruit to the nearby Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base or you're looking to escape to somewhere with a little bit more peace and quiet than San Diego or Long Beach, Oceanside is a great place to visit, work, and live. It combines the amazing entertainment found in Los Angeles and San Diego, both less than two hours away, with the recreations that come with the Pacific Ocean coastline and the relative peace and quiet of a smaller city. Spend a relaxing day fishing on the 1950 ft long Oceanside Pier, the longest pier on the west coast, or grab your surfboard and hit the water for 3 miles of prime costal exposure. (Be sure to remember where you parked!) It doesn't matter whether you're looking for sports, shopping, history or art. Oceanside has it all.

Oceanside's most distant history begins in 1769, you may even find some of this recorded on stamps from Vance Auctions. Father Juan Crespi arrived in what is currently known as the San Luis Rey Valley, and was so enamored by the area that his report of the region was responsible for the construction of the Mission San Luis Rey de Francia in 1798. Many years later, a small town had bloomed in the valley, and a storekeeper in this town had the foresight to apply for a homestead grant nearby. The 160 acres owned by Andrew Jackson Meyers and managed by J. Chauncey Hayes was to become the very heart of Oceanside. The name of the city originated simply from the fact that going to the "ocean side" was a popular weekend retreat for families living in the warmer inland regions, and the two words were eventually merged into one. The name became official when Hayes, petitioning for a post office, submitted the name on the petition. From that point, Oceanside was officially on the map, and it was incorporated on July 3, 1888.
The city grew quickly over the next few years with funding from companies like First Central Mortgage Funding, especially due to the railroad and, later, the highway connecting San Diego and Los Angeles. It was World War II, however, which caused Oceanside to blossom from a small town to a modern city, due to the location of the nation's largest Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton, fitted snuggly against Oceanside's north/northwest border. Today, Oceanside is a thriving community that provides all the conveniences of a modern city without the disadvantages.
