quiet, small, unusual

In a nutshell
Peace and quiet in a clean environment.
A charming playhouse that seats about 70 and presents plays (usually comedies) using some very talented local people. They are open most Friday and Saturday nights as well as Sunday Matinees. Seating is in padded directors chairs. During intermission you can get a drink (wine or coffee) in the pub and after the play the cast is often available in the pub to talk to the audience. They have a free reading once a month on the second or third Wednesday.

So just how does one get to Cambria? I am glad you asked the question; here is the answer:
There are 3 ways to get to Cambria. The first is by car. Cambria is 240 miles North of Los Angeles and it is 240 from San Francisco on Highway 1. Note**Gasoline prices are very high in Cambria, so fill up in San Luis Obispo. The range of prices is 10 cents to 85 cents per gallon MORE than everywhere else in California.
You approach Cambria from the 101 freeway North or South. Watch for signs that say Cambria and you can get there by connecting with Highway 41 OR Highway 46 then turn North on Highway 1.
You can also reach Cambria by air. Flights into San Luis Obispo Airport are 35 miles South of the Village (Cambria). You will need to rent a car here to get you into Cambria proper.
Lastly you can use the Amtrak train. The train station like the airport is in San Luis Obispo 35 miles South of Cambra. Besides rental cars to get you around Cambria there is a county bus which runs between San Luis Obsipo and Cambria. Cambria Community Bus 805 927 4173

I noticed as we were looking through the antique stores and gift shops that the prices in Cambria are just a little inflated, this area survives on tourism so, of course, prices are higher. The gas prices were what really struck me, at least 40 cents more per gallon than the next highest price I had seen and 86 cents more per gallon than the prices I found near LAX. So gas up before or after you go through Cambria!!!

Gas was 3.85 a gallon here when on the same day it was 3.35 down the Highway at Morro Bay. That's an outrages fifteen percent increase for just being a few more miles up Highway 1. It's worth filling up before you get here.

Luggage and bags: Pack light...leave room for all the fabulous shopping!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Casual is key. There isn't really a reason for super dressy. Bring walking shoes and a few things you can wear if it gets chilly.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: We have a drugstore and a wonderful paramedic team.
Photo Equipment: Cameras are a must!

Favorite thing: Cambria is a warm and friendly town that is the perfect spot for a weekend get away or a honeymoon. My wife and I spent our honeymoon there at the Cambria Pines Lodge which is beautiful and pet friendly to boot !
There are wonderful wineries and shopping in Cambria that are just perfect for any taste
Fondest memory: Dining at the Cambria Pines Restaurant in the outdoor garden area after a day at Hearst Castle and watching the elephant seals on the beach near San Simeon.
