Want to get in touch with your inner treasure-hunter? Wave-worn “moonstones” cover this beach and entice seaglass hunters of all ages to sift its sands.
For a dramatic entrance, walk the gentle Moonstone Beach Boardwalk, an ADA-compliant one-mile path along the beach.
Wildlife abounds here with gray whales, humpback whales, dolphins, seabirds and otters at play.
Relax at nearby Shamel Park, whose facilities include day-use areas, a children's playground, restrooms and a heated ADA-compliant swimming pool. Bring a picnic, a birding guide, a sweater, and a sense of adventure!
Don’t miss Linn’s collection of retail stores in the East Village, including Linn’s Gourmet Goods for their famous olallieberry jams, baking mixes and tea, as well as Linn's HomeStyle Gifts & Sale Loft for home decor and gifts.
The 2,000-acre ranch is made possible through a nature conservation easement, with views of a Monterey Pine forest, glimpses of the ocean, and pristine pastures.
Tours of the 2,000-acre property are available in the ranch’s open-air trailer, or on horseback, and discuss the annual rodeo, party and open-pit barbecue held on the ranch in the 1890s with the Hearst Family as benefactor.
Taste the famous olallieberry.
Ready to taste Cambria’s heritage berry, bursting with flavor? The olallieberry (pronounced oh-la-leh) is a cross between a Youngberry and a Loganberry, and is in the same ballpark as a blackberry. The name derives from a Native American word for “berry.”
The olallieberry is the most widely-grown fruit at Linn’s Family Fruit Farm, which is open to the public on picturesque Santa Rosa Creek Road.
Olallieberries feature in Linn’s famous jams, sauces and, most beloved of all, in Linn’s famous olallieberry pie, available at Linn’s Restaurant.
In May every year, Cambria holds the Olallieberry Festival, and every Fourth of July, Linn’s presents an old-timey pie-eating contest.
Walk Cambria’s historic streets.
Cambria’s history has been painstakingly preserved by a dedicated band of volunteers at the Historical Society, which brings the town’s history to life with an easy, self-guided historical walking tour.
The tour showcases historic homes, storefronts and places of worship dating back to the 1870s spanning 28 stops and multiple architectural styles in Cambria’s historic East Village.
Start at the Guthrie-Bianchini House, now the Cambria Historical Museum, for exhibits, information and a charming garden patio.
