The history of Oceanside began with the arrival of the first European explorers in 1789 after the original inhabitation by Native Americans. Father Junipero Serra established the San Luis Rey de Francia Mission on behalf of Spanish missionaries. The Spanish introduced farming and grazing in the early 19th century.

By the 20th century, Oceanside became a popular beach town after residences built in the 1890s established its downtown area.

The development of the Interstate 5 freeway system after World War II increased housing and population growth.

In 1942, the establishment of the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base created a U.S. armed forces community for Oceanside.
