Head to the Oceanside Harbor for a day spent on the water. Schedule a semi-private surf lesson to dive into a new sport hand-in-hand with a loved one and learn firsthand from a local pro. You can even rent stand up paddleboards, kayaks or pedal boats from Oceanside Boat Rentals! If you’re in the mood to let someone else steer the ship, book a whale-watching expedition and marvel at the natural wonders and landscapes roaming the Pacific Ocean. Whales, dolphins, pelagic birds and sea lions await your company!

The Foodie

They say one of the best ways to capture someone’s heart is through their STOMACH. If that has your significant other’s name written all over it, then you need to explore one of Oceanside’s phenomenal restaurants. If you’re in the mood for SoCal casual – grab a Birria Taco and handcrafted beer from Craft Coast Tacos. Looking for something a little stronger? Sip on the refreshing flavors of small-batch spirits from Pacific Coast Spirits while dining on a farm-to-table menu featuring snacks, starters and main dishes you can’t resist. Craving something creative and fresh? Check out Carte Blanche for a delicious French-Mexican fusion dish to try.
