Map & Directions

An artist’s mecca, Cambria offers extraordinary inspiration from tiny pebbles of sand to enormous pine-lined forests. And Cambria’s artists capture it all. With art ranging in style from fine art to kitschy and artisan craft pieces, Cambria’s arts scene has something for everyone.

Fine artists master their works and display them in small and large galleries, and local artisans use their imagination to design their crafts using local resources and drawing from the area’s natural beauty. But Cambria also offers live theatre and live music for those more inclined toward performance arts.

Cambria art, artists, galleries and theatres attract visitors worldwide to our little corner of the coast. Our community fosters, encourages and promotes the arts in a variety of ways, and there’s almost always something unique for everyone to take home with them.

Peruse our fine art galleries, take home local artisan crafts, relish our community theater, or get a kick out of our live music.

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.
