Trade in the bike helmet for some hiking gear and head to the San Simeon Trail.

Play fetch on the beach, take a jog through back roads or play in the comfort of the Main Street Dog Park. No matter where the trails lead, Cambria will have tails wagging.

Stewardship Travel:
Cambria adds a little “feel good” to travel by offering voyagers a chance to leave their mark. Fiscalini Ranch was once the exclusive purview of the Chumash and Salinian Native American tribes. Today, this breathtaking stretch of oceanfront bluff is from development and welcomes pedestrians and cyclists while protecting the home of endangered species, such as red-legged frogs and Monterey pines. Cambria invites travelers to join in continuing the preservation by volunteering time to plant a tree. This event takes place on the third Saturday of every month from 9 a.m. to noon. Make a difference and still enjoy the beauty of the historical Central California Coast.

The perfect time for a free-spirited getaway is now. Visit Cambria this spring to uncover one of California’s best kept secrets. Visit http://welcometocambria to book your weekend vacation.
