A perfect two day stay

My first time in Cambria was during a two week road trip in California. We really didn't do much research, only on places to stay as we were driving up the coast. Cambria is a must stop with this type of trip. Some wonderful shopping, restaurants and activities in Cambria or short drives away make Cambria a repeat visit for me.

One of my favorite things about Cambria is the beach area. Walking the beach or the boardwalk overview. Searching for wildlife in the tidal pools or moonstones on the beach. And finally to finish the day, watching the sunset. It's all great.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:great beach, great food, great times
  • Cons:could be difficult getting reservations at best restaurants
  • In a nutshell:Great for a weekend get away!

    Another lovely little page about your adventures in California. 6 things to do and 5 restaurant tips give me a good idea of your kind of holiday here. *winkygrin*

      A good restaurant is as important to me as activities to explore. Thanks for visiting! Cambria is a great place I'd like to return to some day.

    Looks great! I once lived in California for a few years, but never got to this part of the coast.

    Someone suggested Cambria as a stop between SF & LA, so I came to see what you had to say. Thanks for the tour John!
