Looking for the perfect weekend getaway in California. Quiet, clean, and near the Pacific Ocean on the central coast sits Cambria. The town is divided in two parts, the east and the west and in a way the ocean front, Moonstone Beach, could be the third part
The east and west portions are very similar with restaurants, chic boutiques, and art stores. The ocean section is filling with motels and even B&B's are in the area. San Simeon is only a short drive to the north on Hwy 1 and Morro Bay to the south. San Luis Obispo is close by as well, sitting at the junction of Hwy1 and US 101.
The original section of town with the large antique stores and the chic boutiques. Many fine restaurants in this section of town.
The new kids in town have built this section very similar to the East side but there seems to be more tourist items in this stretch of town.
- Pros:A wonderful beach side community.
- Cons:Overcrowded with tourists on the weekends.
- In a nutshell:Peace and quiet in a clean environment.
This is one of those boutique shops in Cambria that you have to browse through just for the fun of it. Who knows, you... more travel advice
You stop in Cambria for a while, maybe even stay overnight, but you go because you have been here before and love it;... more travel advice
