There is truly no other southern California destination that exemplifies the beach quite like Oceanside, and with perfect weather year-round, anytime is a great time to visit this seaside paradise. Take your Oceanside car rental to the heart of it all, the Oceanside Pier, the longest wooden pier on the Western US coast. This is where it all happens in Oceanside, from whale-watching at the harbor, to world-class dining and shopping, and not to mention the best surfing conditions in southern California. Have a custom surfboard made, or check out the California Surf Museum and marvel at the legendary waves mastered by California’s most awarded surfers. Oceanside is also home to the Old Mission San Luis Rey, the largest mission in California, open daily to the public in the tradition of Franciscan heritage and hospitality. If the family is looking for day of adventure, Sea World and the San Diego Zoo are only a short drive in your Oceanside rental car. No matter how long you stay in Oceanside, you won’t want to leave this coastal paradise!
