It’s easy to get into the swing of hanging out in your cozy Oceanside home every weekend after a long week of work. Sleeping and watching Netflix all day sounds much more appealing than running your errands or looking for something to do. Maybe you’ve already seen everything there is to see in the area. A great way to get out of that habit is to check your local events. One of the best things about the local area surrounding Oceanside real estate is the steady stream of events going on every weekend. Check out what’s happening this weekend in April!
