Oceanside is, as its name states, situated adjacent to an ocean: the Pacific Ocean. It is in southern California, the northernmost city of San Diego county. Housing prices are astronomical, which is the price one pays to live near the water, and the weather is mild. Many people assume it is sunny year-round and, while there is little variation in average temperature throughout the year, May and June are overcast and gray.

Oceanside has very nice beaches and is rising in the tourism industry. Currently, there are more hotels being built on the coast. Oceanside is also a very comfortable city because there are many hospitals nearby. There are also many local colleges and universities that are well known for having great education services.
