Things to Do in Cambria

Go for a walk or lay out in the sand on Moonstone Beach, named for the shiny stones you’ll find buried in the golden sand.

Visit Hearst Castle, up in the hills high above the town of Cambria. The home was built by William Randolph Hearst and has 56 bedrooms and 61 bathrooms, as well as a movie theater, art collections, and more for you to explore. If you didn’t get your fill of home tours, head to Nitt Witt Ridge, where you’ll find a home made out of a variety of materials, including even beer cans and toilet seats. The architect behind the house project built the home with whatever he could find.

Downtown Cambria is a charming place for a stroll along the charming streets. Hop in and out of the quaint cafes and unique shops lining the streets.

Locals in town are friendly and polite, and the town overall has a charming, small-town vibe about it.
