The possibility of a new townhome with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean is now a reality. The ViewPointe, tucked within the San Diego North County region, is within walking distance of Oceanside Pier and some of the best beaches in the region.
With 3.5 miles of pristine beaches, it’s all about sun, sand, and surf in Oceanside. Stroll from your home over to Oceanside Pier to watch surfers, seagulls, seals, or stingrays. Take stand-up paddleboard lessons at Oceanside Harbor or hone your surfing skills under the tutelage of a professional surfer.
Invite a few friends on a whale-watching excursion by boat. Two-hour daily trips from Oceanside Harbor allow plenty of opportunities to witness the majesty of several varieties of whale, as well as dolphins, sunfish, and sea lions.
Cruise along Oceanside’s well-marked bike trails for a casual excursion or a serious workout. The trails, which start and end at Oceanside Pier for the ultimate convenience, are ranked “easy” through “advanced,” so you can tailor your trek to suit your needs.
Spend a relaxing weekend with tee time at one of Oceanside’s golf courses. The private El Camino Country Club offers 18 holes plus all the amenities: a swimming pool, tennis court, fitness center, clubhouse, and several dining options. Play a challenging round at Goat Hill Park, ranked by the Golf Channel’s Matt Ginella as the second-best short course in the entire country. Goat Hill Park also hosts disc golf several days per week for a completely different experience.
Weekly farmers markets offer the opportunity to get your fill of fresh produce, international cuisine, and locally crafted goods, whether you prefer morning or evening options. The Oceanside Farmers Market takes place every Thursday morning through early afternoon near Civic Center Plaza. If evenings are more your style, visit the Sunset Market from 5pm to 9pm any Thursday for an eclectic array of handcrafted goods, live music, and, of course, food.
The restaurant scene is on the rise in Oceanside, with options ranging from fine dining to craft breweries and pubs. Enjoy dinner with a view at 333 Pacific. Share a chilled seafood platter or try the hanger steak with rosemary truffle fries and bleu cheese fondue. Masters Kitchen and Cocktail, housed in a former dragster shop, offers dishes such as Kobe beef meatloaf, blackened salmon with grits, or bourbon-peach barbecue chicken, plus a vast array of sushi and raw-bar selections.
Explore the ever-expanding craft beer selection at Bagby Beer Company, run by noted brewer Jeff Bagby. In addition to more than a dozen house-made brews on tap daily, this dog- and kid-friendly locale serves trendy pub fare such as pork belly sliders, Cuban sandwiches, burgers, and crispy Brussels sprouts. Bagby offers more than 8,000 square feet of space indoors and out, complete with outdoor gardens and rooftop patios.
When you’re in the mood for the completely eclectic, invite a few friends out for dinner at Wrench & Rodent Seabasstropub. With punk-inspired decor and equally irreverent twists on traditional sushi, this restaurant aims to delight the willing palate. Sushi rolls have unusual names such as “wet brain” or “hedgehog,” comprised of equally unusual combinations such as tuna, shitake mushroom, and root beer teriyaki. Every ingredient is chef-selected, carefully sourced, or made from scratch.
