Oceanside occupies over 3 miles of San Diego’s coastline and over 42 sq. miles total. Just north of Carlsbad, its name says it all.
The history of Oceanside is rich and begins in the late 1700′s, but the city was actually founded in 1883 when a man named Andrew Jackson Myers bought 160 acres of land on the Oceanside Mesa. Within 4 years the first bank appeared.
In 1888 the city of Oceanside was first incorporated and by 2010 had a population of 167,086, according to SANDAG.
