Mom, Are We There Yet? Blog Repost: Road Trip to Hearst Castle & More



Deborah, creator of the Mom, Are We There Yet? blog recently went on a road trip to Cambria and the Central Coast!

She and her family visited the elephant seals, Hearst Castle, Nitt Witt Ridge, and more. They loved that Cambria has no chains, only unique storefronts and eateries! They were also fascinated by the old buildings in town, many of them now housing businesses and restaurants, like Robin’s, where they ate dinner one evening.

Deborah and team ventured out during the crazy storms a couple weeks ago, but they still had a great time. Check out their amazing adventures here!


Darling Magazine: The Solo Getaway of Your Dreams



Recently, Cassie Winslow from Darling Magazine took an incredible solo trip to Cambria, and basically, she stole our hearts in the process. We love her beautiful photography, her independent soul, her stylish aesthetic, and most of all, her do-it-all itinerary! Here’s a sneak peek of her fantastic article:

“Nestled on the Pacific Coast just 20 minutes west of Paso Robles lies a charming California village lush with nourishing energy, splendid farm-to-table restaurants and welcoming locals. Inviting spaces and a wealth of opportunities to rest and recharge make Cambria an especially lovely destination for a solo getaway.”

Scroll down to the bottom to read the full story. You’ll be happy you did!


Free People’s story begins here:

One of my favorite things in the world is exploring small, sleepy beach towns. I can’t help but be drawn to the undeniable charm and beauty that these cities possess. Most recently, I mapped out a day trip to Cambria, a seaside village nestled in a pocket of pine trees in Central California. Over the years, I have always wanted to stop and explore Cambria while passing through. It’s off the gorgeous Highway One in San Luis Obispo County and sits at the halfway point between San Francisco and Los Angeles. It’s a town of leisure — antique shops, cafes, and bed and breakfasts line the streets.

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.

For the latest road closure information visit the Caltrans website.
