The pier is a good walk and a great photo stop but there isn't a lot to do. It's also difficult with strollers since the wood has gaps and is very uneven.

Sunsets are awesome from this vantage point. Rent one of the bikes that are below the pier and ride down the shore line. Very pleasant.

What a great place to relax and observe the ocean, surfers and local fisherman! We’ve really enjoyed our walks to the end of the pier and this morning had breakfast at the 50's diner at the end. Nicest pier I’ve seen.

The pier is a great place for a walk, lovely views of the beach, and some fun people watching. The weather is good year round. It's safe and easily accessible for strollers or wheelchairs to enjoy the ocean without worrying about the sand.

The Oceanside Pier is a great discovery and truly a unique experience. It is ~ 1/3 of a mile and within walking distance of several nearby motels. Walking the pier is a special learning experience as it provides you a range of views of swells...More

The singer makes it extra special. And have fun looking for the fishermen to see what they are catching today.
