Coastal Cambria, CA

Along the Central Coast of California is the quaint town of Cambria. It makes a relaxing getaway for the urbanites from LA and San Francisco. For this East Coast girl, I found the charm of the rocky coastline reminiscent of New England.

Moonstone Beach, Cambria CA

Moonstone Beach has low-rise motels that provide seaside views making this area so desirable. You may find surfers and sea otters out in the ocean as you walk along the beach and boardwalk. Take the time to sit, look and listen to the waves crash, and you will be rewarded. Of course, the sunrise and sunset here are gorgeous.

A little further inland is the village of Cambria. It’s chock full of art galleries, antique stores, and unique shops. There are a variety of restaurants including one we loved called, Robin’s. We sat in their beautiful outdoor patio and enjoyed selecting our dinner from a diverse menu featuring local produce.

Cambria is a delightful destination. It falls in the Central Coast wine valley near Paso Robles. It is a short drive to Hearst Castle, Piedras Blancas Lighthouse where Elephant Seals gather nearby, and further North, Big Sur. When you travel the Central Coast, make Cambria a stop to relax, enjoy nature, and the ocean views, you won’t regret it!

      I took the header picture in Grand Tetons National Park, WY. It’s a well-photographed location – Moulton Barn – and you can see why! This picture sums up GTNP for me so well. It’s one of my favorite places – look for a future posting about it!
