Just north of San Diego lies a little piece of heaven. Pristine beaches, scenic boardwalks, nature trails, and quaint mom and pop shops make Oceanside a great place to visit or live. With a population of around 170,000 people, it’s large enough to satisfy all your city needs, but small enough to still feel like a community. Oceanside Pier, now in its sixth incarnation, is their claim to fame, and rightfully so. Stretching 1,954 feet into the Pacific Ocean, it’s the longest wooden pier on the western United States coast!
