Tox/Detox Itinerary

You may know Cambria as a quiet coastal hamlet, abundant with eccentric antique stores and quaint lace-edged bed & breakfasts, but there is so much more for the young at heart. With a fresh infusion of hoteliers, winemakers, brewers, restaurateurs, fitness instructors, and artists—along with some old-school dive-bar fun—Cambria has everything for the perfect weekend with your girlfriends. You just have to know where to go.

On day one: TOX. Wine and beer taste, rock out to live music, eat pie, and indulge. In other words, treat yourself. On day two: DETOX. Eat healthy, do yoga, take in the beautiful natural surroundings, and meditate. By the time you leave Cambria, you’ll have had the perfect combination of entertainment and relaxation.

Morning: Stop for coffee and a snack at the Cambria Coffee Roasting Company, then take a tour of decadent Hearst Castle.

Afternoon: Head east through winding hills on Santa Rosa Creek Road for wine tasting at Stolo Family Vineyards and homemade pie or jam on the farm at Linn’s Fruit Binn.

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.
