A Winter Getaway in Cambria

There’s nothing like a trip to Cambria to pause the business of the winter months. You can experience the twinkling lights of the Cambria Christmas Market and the holiday spirit that is ubiquitous of our most cherished Christmas movies.

A weekend getaway may be just what you need, and with all that is going on in Cambria during the winter season, it’s impossible not to embrace the holiday spirit. Cozy up at Moonstone Beach, jam out to live music at our local venues, stroll and shop the streets of our East and West Villages, dine on oceanside fare, and sip on wines unique to the Central Coast of California. We invite you to delight in the serenity of the Central Coast in the wintertime!

2 Travel Dads Blog Repost


Rob and Chris, creators of the 2 Travel Dads blog, explored Moonstone Beach, journeyed through Fiscalini Ranch and studied elephant seals with their two young sons on their recent trip to Cambria. This adventuring family not only got a taste of the coastal outdoors, but also indulged in Cambria’s local cuisine, perused specialty shops and experienced Cambria’s unique history.

You may think that traveling with two kids is a bit chaotic, but with Cambria’s relaxed, go-with-the-flow atmosphere, that’s just not the case. This three-day trip was filled with tons of fun but also tons of downtime to soak in all of the treasures that Cambria has to offer.

Needless to say, they had a great time.

Check out all of the memories they made while visiting Cambria!


Highway Closures

Highway 1 Closure

If you're heading to the Central Coast, be sure to be mindful of the stretch of Highway 1, 21 miles north of Cambria. Caltrans is busy with a major construction project to make traveling along the stunning Pacific Coast Highway a safer journey.

Highway 1 Storm Repair Along the Big Sur Coast Due to multiple active slides, State Route 1 is now closed between Ragged Pt. (SLO 72.87) and just south of Nepenthe (Mon 44).

Worried about Highway 1 Road Closures? Cambria and Hearst Castle are easily accessible from Highway 46 West from 101 South of Paso Robles or from northbound Highway 1 from the city of San Luis Obispo. Travelers from the north can easily take Highway 101 as an alternate route to Highway 1, which reduces travel time to Cambria by about 25 minutes.
