The 2010 U.S. Census reported that Oceanside's population was 167,086. Oceanside is the third-largest city in San Diego County and forms a tri-city area with neighboring cities Carlsbad and Vista. As the last metropolitan area before crossing the Orange County line, Oceanside is an oasis for many before entering the county that houses tourist attractions like Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm.

Oceanside is quickly becoming one of the hallmark vacation destinations in California, so finding the ideal hotel for your stay is essential to uncovering the best of what Oceanside has to offer.

When to Visit Oceanside, California

Oceanside, California, experiences favorable weather most of the year. The average high temperature is about 68 degrees, with lows around 54 degrees. The daily mean temperature is 61, but combined with the sunny, semi-arid climate of Oceanside, it seems roughly 10 degrees warmer.

Oceanside experiences little rain between May and September, making this stretch of months some of the most favorable for experiencing the city's scenic beauty and historic beaches. Oceanside experiences more precipitation from January through March than the remaining months of the year, but even during this time, Oceanside rarely sees more than 2 1/2 inches of rain.

If you plan on visiting Oceanside during the summer, expect most hotels to offer less leniency on pricing. While it's not impossible to find a good deal on a hotel, travelers who want to stay as close to the beach as possible will note the liveliness of the season clearly reflected in hotel pricing. However, missing out on Oceanside's lively outdoor culture — which includes droves of surfers carving through the water, markets lining the beaches, and parasailers coasting through the air — negates any pricing concerns.

You can spend the summer months in Oceanside on the beach soaking in the sun. As the temperature starts to drop slightly during the fall transition, the water cools and the coastal winds attract crowds of people to the beach for sports. Large-scale beach football and soccer games are common during the fall and winter seasons, but you'll undoubtedly find plenty of surfers snug in their wetsuits a dozen or so yards from the shore.
