Central California Coast Family Fun Places to Go - Things to Do Shopping Things to Do West Coast

Cambria California

Coast Trip and Hanford with Grammie 2011 038 (1)We have a favorite place in the old section of Cambria called Heart’s Ease.  This shop is a cute little house that has lots of flowery smelling stuff in it, which we don’t much stop for, but we wind our way through to the back yard of this tiny house.

There you will find a jewel of a garden with paths, plants flowers, and some garden things, but our favorite feature is the FAIRY GARDEN!  There is a “room”  made of grape vines, just big enough for kids that they can go into and sit on tiny benches, and watch the fairies go about their business.  It’s free to walk through the garden.

There are sooooo many shops and things to do in Cambria, I can’t name all of them but here are a couple of our favorites:

Hearts Ease

The Garden Shed

The Cambria Museum

Linn’s Fruit Bin

Lodging in Cambria

Two of the places we have stayed in Cambria are:

Fog’s End Bed & Breakfast

Blue Bird Inn Motel

Shamel Beach Park 

Beach at Shamel Park This park/beach features a lovely grassy area and picnic tables, a large play structure for the kids, a built in pool, a gazebo, restrooms and beach access.  Some of the prettiest pebbles and drift wood, I’ve seen are on this beach.   BEWARE OF DANGEROUS RIPTIDES. WATCH YOUR KIDS CLOSELY.
