Fun thing to do in Oceanside by Xiaochen

Oceanside is a beautiful city, especially this city is near the ocean. If you love the ocean and beach, Oceanside is the place where you do not want to miss.  

Except studying, what can we do in Oceanside? 
For me, the fun thing to do is go fishing in 
Oceanside. This activity won't cost you much
money, also you can stay close to the ocean. 
How amazing is it!!

Before you guys go fishing, the important thing to know is the rule of fishing in California. First, you need to buy a fishing license. There are two ways to do it. One is buy it online. The website is Another way to do it is buy in Walmart. Notice there has the time limit on the fishing license. If you just want to have a try, you can buy one day only. If you like it, the best choice is buy one year. The fee for nonresident sport fishing is 126.36 (one year).  One-day sport fishing is 15.12. 

After you have you license ready, the next step is choosing a fishing rod. You can buy it in Walmart or fishing tackle shop. Finally, enjoy your fishing day! There are one place that I recommend to you guys: Harbor Beach. The address is 1540 N Harbor Dr, Oceanside, CA 92054. You can find a good fishing spot in here.
