Oceanside

Getting Around Oceanside

The northernmost of the beach towns, Oceanside, lies 8 miles north of Carlsbad via I-5; exit the freeway on Mission Avenue. If you go west, you'll come to the redeveloped downtown and harbor where you'll find most of the restaurants, lodgings, and attractions. Downtown Oceanside is quite walkable from the Transportation Center, where Amtrak, the Coaster, and Sprinter stop. Buses and taxis are also available at the Transportation Center.
