Oceanside is the northern-most City of San Diego County. The city is in the midst of transforming itself from the "backyard of Camp Pendelton Marine Corps Base" to a vibrant business and tourism-centered community. Residents work either in North San Diego County or Southern Orange County without lengthy commutes. The 2,000 foot pier is one of the longest on the West Coast. The harbor and marina offer a great place to relax. The San Luis Ray Mission has stood for nearly 200 years as a symbol to the Spanish Jesuits that founded the region. The area offers affordable new housing and condominium developments.
