What are the advantages/disadvantages of moving to Oceanside, CA?
Oceanside, CA is located right next to camp penelton, the largest military base in the USA! So, going out downtown Oceanside is like going to a marine party. Whether you would like that is up to you. It is beautiful because it has a pier and a beach with palm trees everywhere, but there are also a lot of street kids, addicts, police, and homeless people. But every city has those so again it's your point of view. Besides by the beach, heading inland but staying in Oceanside your last stop would be right around trip city hospital. Neighborhoods range from not so good to good but if you want a really nice gated community i’d move to Carlsbad. Just like every other city there are tons of things to do, 10 theatres to choose from, thousands of shops, but no mall. Well there is a mall but it's considered Carlsbad and is currently undergoing construction so barely any stores are open. Miracosta community college is located in Oceanside and is a great beautiful campus. Small but really awesome, in my opinion. Last thing I'm going to say about Oceanside is there are main highways that go right through it (5 freeway, 76 highway, and 78 freeway) so if your wanting to go anywhere, there's an easy route. Hope this helps you get a picture of what it's like in Oceanside. I live here so I must like it!
