Where to retire in Oceanside California

Oceanside has a larger population of roughly 174,558 people as of 2013, making it the 3rd largest city in San Diego County. It is a fairly diverse and younger population, spread out with 23.8% of the people under the age of 18, 11.4% aged 18 to 24, 27.4% aged 25 to 44, 24.5% aged 45 to 64, and 12.9% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 35.2 years (according to 2010 US census data).

Like most places in North County, Oceanside has a very relaxed vibe to it. Flip-flops and shorts are far more common than professional attire, and there is more of a working class feel here. You’ll also see the presence of the Camp Pendleton Marine base, with many young military families and retired military living here.

The median family income is $52,232 in Oceanside, vs. the CA average of $53,025, much lower than that of Carlsbad and Encinitas (Source: Trulia.com). However, it is much more affordable overall and has plenty of outdoor activities and things to do.

Very much a surfing town, Oceanside is also home to the California Surf Museum. It’s the host of the Supergirl Pro Jam, the largest women’s surf competition in the world. Oceanside is also home to the Beach Soccer USA Cup and Festival every May.

Biking is a favorite pastime in Oceanside CA. Endurance events like the Ironman Triathlon and Bike the Coast –Taste the Coast are held here. Oceanside is also the official host for the start of the Race Across America, 3,000-mile bicycle race – one of the world’s toughest sporting events.

Many local training events are open to all ages and experience levels. Two major cycling trails run through the city, providing opportunities for great sightseeing along the way.

Buccaneer Beach along Pacific St is smallest beach in Oceanside, California

There are over 3.5 miles of wide, sandy beaches with excellent surfing conditions. Having one of the most beautiful harbors in the U.S., Oceanside is a very busy boating and fishing spot and has plenty of coastal cruises and whale watching excursions too.

Every Thursday evening you’ll find live entertainment, food stands and local vendors at the Sunset Market in Downtown Oceanside.

The 3 cities of Oceanside, Carlsbad and Vista form what is known as the “tri-city” area of North County San Diego. The Tri-City Medical Center is located in Oceanside and 9 other hospitals are within 26 miles of the center of town.

There are 4 various school districts serving Oceanside and the surrounding areas. 25 public schools in Oceanside alone (including 2 high schools), and another 18 private and catholic schools as well.
