2014 New Year’s Parties and Events near San Diego

Vista and Oceanside are two smaller cities within San Diego County, California. Vista, California sits in the northern part of the county and is home to around 100,000 people while Oceanside has around 170,000 people and is on the outskirts of Camp Pendleton, a Marine Corps base.

Their smaller size doesn’t mean that there’s no fun to be found in Vista or Oceanside to ring in 2014. While you are within easy driving distance of the city of San Diego, there is no need to head there if you don’t want to.
