Pacific coast from Cambria’s Fiscalini Ranch Walk.

Cambria is about equal distance between Los Angeles and San Francisco along beautifully scenic Highway One. It is small village of about 6600 residents and home to many artisans, wine makers, musicians, and surfer dudes. The primary economic source is tourism based largely on the fact that Cambria is located on the Pacific Ocean at the southern end of California’s Pacific Coast Highway One, and has dramatic rocky cliffs, beaches, and towering pines. Close by sights include Hearst Castle, Nitt Witt Ridge, the Northern Elephant Seal Rockery, the southern end of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, and the occasional whale passing through.

Weather ranges from perfect to near-perfect. When temperatures reach into the 100s just across the Santa Lucia Mountain range to the east, it is a comfortable 65 degrees in Cambria. When the fog rolls in, it is a comfortable 65 degrees. In winter, when it is a cold 40 degrees to the east of the Santa Lucias, it is a comfortable 65 degrees in Cambria. Well you get the picture. If you’re lucky enough to live in Cambria, you’re lucky enough.
