Olongapo City is the largest community and located right next to SBMA.
Barrio Barretto is the next community as you head north along the National Highway, a few kilpmeters up the road.
Subic City, or Calapandayan is even farther north up the highway.
Don't forget the Cross Roads even further north on National Highway just outside of San Antonio - small group of bars catering to the sailors stationed at the US Navy communications base near there. A bar named the Seventh Dawn was the destination for "roadtrips" that some of us would make from Olongapo on a regular basis. Usually started at the American Legion on Magsaysay for a good late breakfast, load up in one or two of our vehicles and stop at a Sari-Sari for "road pop" (bottle of Tunduay ESQ & couple of large cokes). First beer stop was always Bad Good & Ugly bar in Baretto to play a few games of 9-ball, next was the Blue Diamond in Subic City for refreshments & a good BBBJ or across the street to the Bamboo for more erotic pleasure. Then on the road to the Seventh Dawn for an afternoon of fun & games with the locals including some of our mates from the comm base. Why the Seventh Dawn, well it was a good place with a good pool table and most important they had our roadtrip theme song "Dead Skunk In The Middle Of The Road" by Loudon Wainwright on their jukebox. When one of us would drop a coin and play that song we would stop what we were doing and gather up and do our Dead Skunk imitation & dance routine. We looked like a bunch of fools but when you are young and full of life plus a considerable amount of road pop & beer it was great fun. Sometimes we would stay overnight but typically headed straight back to Po City with a few roadside piss stops. Usually ended up on Rizal Ave at Mom's for taco's and Perla's for a nightcap before heading home for the night.
Don't forget to look left and then look right or you might end up as a dead skunk in the middle of the road!
Edit: Note this was in the early & mid 70's and yes things were way way better back then.
