Oceanside Harbor


Oceanside Harbor

The Oceanside Harbor is a lovely place to visit!  You'll find about two miles of sidewalk, which will take you around the entire Harbor.  There are benches and picnic tables if you want to do a little people, boat and sea bird watching.  You'll enjoy grabbing a bite to eat or drink at one of the many beautiful Harbor dining options.  Park for free along the road or in one of the many lots (mix of free and pay lots, check map).   Enjoy the adjacent Oceanside Harbor Beach!
