Oceanside, the Perfect Metrolink Summer Day Trip

One of Southern California’s favorite beach towns, Oceanside has it all -- wide sandy beaches, a quaint New England-style harbor, historic wooden pier, fabulous shopping and restaurants, and plenty of craft breweries.

The best way to get there is by hopping aboard a Metrolink train. Yes, you can bring a surfboard, your family, or just a spirt of adventure. Go ahead, relax. No need to battle traffic or parking hassles when Metrolink is driving.

When you arrive at the Oceanside train station, you’re a super easy walk from the beautiful Pacific and the charming town. Which first? You can easily cover both in one fun outing before boarding the train for home.

Metrolink ticket in hand (or on phone), save 5 percent on a two-hour whale watching tour at Oceanside Adventures or $1 on growler fills at the famous Stone Company Store, or get happy hour pricing on all edible items at the Mission Avenue Bar and Grill. These are just a few of the deals available just by showing your Metrolink ticket, only $10 for unlimited travel all day either Saturday or Sunday.

If you haven’t been to Oceanside lately, now is the time.
